This is a lovely mystery to use when teaching standard form, it also brings in a real life context which I always like. Students are presented with various clues about the planets, they must use these to work out the distance from the sun and the mass of each planet. A great problem solving lesson which checks their understanding of writing in standard form and interpreting numbers written in standard form. I would get students to work on this in pairs and present their findings along with a justification for each. Thank you for sharing.
