10.3 Scientific Notation SCIENTIFIC NOTATION a Scientific notation for a number is an expression of the type where n is an integer, M is greater than or equal to 1 and less than 10 and M is expressed in decimal notation. Convert between scientific notation and decimal notation. Copyright 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 5

10.3 Scientific Notation In scientific notation, a positive power of 10 indicates a large number (greater than or equal to 10) and a negative power of 10 indicates a small number (between 0 and 1). a Convert between scientific notation and decimal notation.

10.3 Scientific Notation a Convert between scientific notation and decimal notation. Converting from scientific notation to decimal notation involves multiplying by a power of 10. To convert to decimal notation, we move the decimal point. Copyright 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 7

10.3 Scientific Notation a Convert between scientific notation and decimal notation. We reverse the process when converting from decimal notation to scientific notation. To convert a number to scientific notation, we write it in the form where M looks like the original number but with exactly one nonzero digit to the immediate left of the decimal point.
