Concepts Covered

Scientific notation is a way of writing very large or very small numbers. A number is written in scientific notation when a number between 1 and 10 is multiplied by a power of 10. A number can be expressed as a single digit multiplied by a power of ten by counting the place values until you arrive to the right of the one’s place and use the number of place values to be the power of 10.

Decimal notation or standard form can be converted to scientific notation. Convert between units of measure to solve problems. Use appropriate units of measure for the context of the problem. Recognize calculator and computer notation for scientific notation.

In total, there are three games in this learning objective, including:

  • Gobble: Operations in Scientific Notation
