1
Scientific Notation

2
When scientists deal with very large numbers, it’s hard to keep track of place values! How far? miles

3
It is hard with very small numbers, too! How wide is an atom? meters wide!

4
Scientific notation consists of two parts: A number between 1 and 10 A number between 1 and 10 A power of 10 A power of 10 N x 10 x

5
We use Short hand ! 100 = 10 x 10 1,000 = 10 x 10 x ,000 = 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 10,000 = 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 1,000,000 = 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x one googol !!!

6
Standard Form 200 = 2 x 100 4,000 = 4 x ,000 = 5 x 100,000 70,000 = 7 x 10,000 3,000,000 = 3 x 1,000,000 Scientific Notation

7
Add the decimal point A short cut Between 1 and 10 The point moved 6 places Move the point to get a number between 1 and 10

8
Add the decimal point Between 1 and 10 The point moved 7 places Move the point to get a number between 1 and 10 A short cut

9
Try for yourself: Turn Standard Form into Scientific Notation (1) (2) (3) (4) (5)

10
=346,000 Zeros after the point aren’t needed. The point moves 5 places Hint: Add 5 zeros, although you probably won’t need them all. Changing back

11
=86,000,000 Zeros after the point aren’t needed. The point needs to move 7 places Hint: Add 7 zeros, although you probably won’t need them all. Changing back

12
Try for Yourself: Change Scientific Notation back to Standard form (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) = = = = =

13
The point moved 10 places. Negative sign for small numbers. Move the point to get a number between 1 and 10 Standard Form to Scientific Form for SMALL numbers

14
The point moved 7 places. Negative sign for small numbers. Move the point to get a number between 1 and 10 Standard Form to Scientific Notation for small numbers

15
Standard Form to Scientific Notation for small numbers The point moved 6 places. Negative sign for small numbers. Move the point to get a number between 1 and 10

16
Try for Yourself: Change Standard Form to Scientific Notation (1) (2) (3) (4) (5)

17
= Hint: Add 3 zeros to the left of the number. -3 so remember to move point left 3 spaces.. Changing back small numbers

18
= Hint: Add 5 zeros to the left of the number. -5 so remember to move point left for small numbers. Changing back small numbers

19
= Hint: Add 6 zeros to the left of the number. -6 so remember to move point left for small numbers.

20
(1) (2) (3) (4) (5) = = = = = Try for Yourself: Change Scientific Notation to Standard form
