#### Transcript SCIENTIFIC NOTATION VOCABULARY Scientific Notation

```SCIENTIFIC NOTATION DAY 1
• Learn Vocabulary Terms
• Identify Vocabulary terms in problems
• Understand why Scientific Notation is used
• Identify numbers written in Scientific notation
& be able to explain why or why not
SCIENTIFIC NOTATION VOCABULARY
Scientific Notation: A way of expressing very large
or very small numbers more
easily using a power of 10
EX: 35,700 = 3.57 x 104
Standard Form:
EX: 35,700
The “normal” regular way
we write a number
SCIENTIFIC NOTATION VOCABULARY
Finite decimal: every whole number
EX: 5, 78, 90 (any number between 1 & 9)
Leading digit: the leftmost digit : single, NON-ZERO
number to the left of the decimal
EX: 6.5
9.0
Order of
magnitude:
2.34
The exponent used to
show the power (magnitude of 10)
It basically tells us how many times to move
the decimal left or right.
EX: 105 = 1.00000

HOW DO I KNOW IF IT’S SCIENTIFIC NOTATION?
1) Must be written as a PRODUCT (X’s)
EX: 3.6 x 103
2) The LEADING DIGIT must to the left of the decimal and
be a WHOLE number between 1 & 9
EX: 3.6 x 103
3) There must be a order of magnitude (power of 10)
EX: 3.6 x 103

SCIENTIFIC NOTATION DAY 2 & 3
• Identifying large vs. small numbers by the
placement of the zeros.
• Using zero placement to tell us which direction
the decimal is moved from the leading digit
• Identify if the power of 10 is positive or negative
by the zeros
• Know why we use it

WHICH NUMBER IS THE LARGER NUMBER?

BE PREPARED TO EXPLAIN/SHARE YOUR CHOICES.
SCIENTIFIC NOTATION BASICS
• Scientific Notation is a way of expressing very
large or very small numbers in an easier way.
Large numbers often have MANY zeros at the end.
EX: 450,000,000
Small numbers have the zeros at the beginning.
EX: 0.000000032
VERY SMALL OR VERY LARGE
• Identify each number as very small or very large:
1) 0.000015
SMALL LARGE
2) 6,000,000
SMALL LARGE
3) 0.00000901
SMALL LARGE
of these zeros?
• What does the direction (left; before OR
right; after) they tell us about the numbers?
• HINT: Think about the number line or the
decimal place value chart

Identify each number as very small or very large:
1) 0.000025
SMALL LARGE
2) 9,000,000
SMALL LARGE
3) 0.00000745
SMALL LARGE
Writing numbers in Scientific Notation
• Identifying large vs. small numbers by the
placement of the zeros.
• Using zero placement to tell us which direction
the decimal is moved from the leading digit
• Identify if the power of 10 is positive or negative
by the zeros
How to Do it:
Writing large numbers in Scientific Notation
• To figure out the power of 10, think "how many
places do I move the decimal point?“
• If the number is 10 or greater, the decimal point
has to move to the left, and the power of 10 will
be positive; large number

EXAMPLE:
Write 4,250,000,000 in scientific notation
4.250000000.
4.250000000.

Move the decimal so that only 1 digit is
to the left of the decimal
Count the number of spaces that
the decimal has to be moved to the
RIGHT.
Write the number WITHOUT ending
the zeros, & multiply by the correct
power of 10
Let’s PRACTICE
Write each number in scientific notation:
1) 68,000
2) 73,280,000
How to Do it:
Writing Small numbers in Scientific Notation
• To figure out the power of 10, think "how many
places do I move the decimal point?“
• If the number is smaller than 1, the decimal point
has to move to the right, so the power of 10 will
be negative; small number

EXAMPLE:
Write 0.0000000425 in scientific notation
0.00000004.25
Move the decimal so that only 1
NON ZERO digit is to the left of the decimal
0.00000004.25
Count the number of spaces that
the decimal has to be moved to the
LEFT.
8 places
4.25 x
10-8
Write the number WITHOUT beginning
the zeros, & multiply by the correct
power of 10 AND use a NEGATIVE
exponent to move the decimal to the left.
Let’s PRACTICE
Write each number in scientific notation:
1) 0.0038
2) 0.0000004
Check!
After putting the number in Scientific Notation,
just check that:
• The "digits" part is between 1 and 10 (it can
be 1, but never 10)
• The "power" part shows exactly how many
places to move the decimal point

SCIENTIFIC NOTATION DAY 4 & 5
• Use knowledge of decimal movement &
scientific notation to convert
:
• Convert FROM scientific notation TO
standard form with positive & negative
exponents
HOW TO USE THE CALCULATOR
1) On
2) Clear
3) Enter the standard form number
4) Press blue “2nd “ key
5) Press “DRG” ( SCI/ENG)
6) Using the right/left arrow keys choose:
“FLO” for standard form
“ SCI” for scientific notation
*if you want to go back to choose another form
repeat steps 5 and 6 and then press enter twice
