### Numbers and powers of 10

"Powers of 10" is a very useful way of writing down large or small numbers. Instead of having lots of zeros, you show how many powers of 10 you need to make that many zeros. See more here.
Can you imagine what size are the things around us? Have a look to the following site called "Scale of universe enhanced" and write a brief summary with your partner of three things on the web.

Let me know what you think in the comments,

### BAROQUE DANCES Dancing has always been a popular form of entertainment, social interaction, and just plain fun!. Although the enjoyment of this activity has not diminished, today's dances differ greatly in style from dances of the Baroque period.

Search the Internet for pictures and video clips that illustrate some of the Baroque dances you have studied. Use the key words "Baroque dances".

You will be asked to give short presentations on your findings in our forthcoming classes.

Have fun
