Standard form is a way to write really large or very small numbers. It follows the format a × 10ⁿ. Scientists use standard form all the time as they regularly have to deal with very large and very small numbers. For example the speed of light is a very large number, so it's usually written as 3 × 10⁸ m/s.
In this lesson students will learn how to write very large or very small numbers in standard form. Standard form appears in both the higher and foundation papers at GCSE level and is a topic that is regularly tested.
Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
This class is for all students in Year 7-9 or S1-S3 who are studying the topic of Standard Form and want a chance to practise some exercises.
