This is most definitely my favourite ever Maths lesson to teach and this PPT has been constructed over the last 10 years of teaching this topic. 25 slides.
It includes writing a small number and big numbers into Scientific Notation and vice versa. It looks at our universe and atoms etc... to give maths a real-life context. It includes lots of examples, with very clear teaching. Useful starter, lots of questions with answers, which I normally run as a bit of a competition and plenary.
It does NOT include adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing Scientific Notation, which comes in lesson number 2 !! You can buy both as a bundle to reduce costs.
