In this unit, students will learn about using standard form and surd notation to represent numbers. They will begin by understanding some of the applications of standard form and learning how to convert ordinary numbers into standard form and vice versa. They will go on to learn how to perform calculations in standard form, both with and without a calculator. After this, students will be introduced to surd notation for irrational square roots and will learn how to simplify surd expressions involving squares.
