6.EE.A.1

Write and evaluate numerical expressions involving whole-number exponents.

Students will learn how to quickly convert powers of ten to standard form. That is, students will learn that \(10^n\) is simple a \(1\) followed by \(n\) zeros. This skill will be built on later, when students learn, more generally, how to convert between scientific notation and standard form. A lesson can be seen by watching this, then this. Students can practice here.
