1 Scientific Notation

2 Consists of two parts 1. mantissa The full size number that comes before x characteristic The exponent that comes after x 10 and is superscript

3 Scientific Notation Example: 3.00 x Mantissa Characteristic

4 Scientific Notation To convert a normal number to scientific notation, move the decimal either to the left or right until you have a mantissa which is greater than -10 or less than +10

5 Scientific Notation If the absolute value of the number is smaller than 1, the characteristic will be negative If the absolute value of the number is larger than 1, the characteristic will be positive

6 Scientific Notation Example: 542 The absolute value of the number is greater than one so the characteristic is positive 542 Moved to the left two spaces 5.42 x 10 2

7 Scientific Notation Example: The absolute value of the number is greater than one so the characteristic is positive Moved to the left seven spaces -4.5 x 10 7

8 Example: The absolute value of the number is less than one so the characteristic is negative Moved to the right three spaces 4.0 x 10 -3

9 Example: The absolute value of the number is less than one so the characteristic is negative Moved to the right one space x 10 -1

10 Example : The absolute value of the number is between -10 and The decimal is not moved. In this case, the characteristic is zero x10 0

11 Let’s Practice Change into scientific notation. = 4.76 x 10 7

12 Let’s Practice Change into scientific notation. = 8.90 x 10 -2

13 Let’s Practice Change into scientific notation. = 5 x 10 4

14 Let’s Practice Change into scientific notation. = x 10 4

15 Let’s Practice Change into scientific notation. = x 10 -6

16 Expanding Scientific Notation to Regular notation If the characteristic is positive, move the decimal to the right. If the characteristic is negative, move the decimal to the left.

17 Expanding Scientific Notation to Regular notation Example 6.50 x 10 2 The characteristic tells us to move two places to the right. 650.

18 Expanding Scientific Notation to Regular notation Example 6.50 x The characteristic tells us to move two places to the left

19 Let’s Practice Convert 9.7 x into regular notation

20 Let’s Practice Convert 9.7 x 10 2 into regular notation. 970

21 Let’s Practice Convert 5.60 x 10 2 into regular notation. 560.

22 Let’s Practice Convert 6.02 x into regular notation. 602,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Isn’t scientific notation great?

23 Fixing Incorrect Scientific Notation Fix the mantissa by moving the decimal Add the “fixed” characteristic to the original characteristic

24 Example 20.4 x 10 6 (incorrect) Moved over one space to the left (+) to correct the mantissa 2.04 x 10 (6+1) 2.04 x 10 7 (correct)

25 Example x (incorrect) Moved over two spaces to the left (+) to correct the mantissa x 10 (-6+2) x (correct)

26 Example x 10 8 (incorrect) Moved over three spaces to the right (-) to correct the mantissa 3.40 x 10 (8 + -3) 3.40 x 10 5 (correct)

27 Example x (incorrect) Moved over three spaces to the right (-) to correct the mantissa 3.40 x 10 ( ) 3.40 x (correct)

28 Practice Fix the following incorrect number x x 10 ( ) 5.79 x 10 7 (correct)

29 Practice Fix the following incorrect number x x 10 ( ) 4.0 x (correct)

30 Practice Fix the following incorrect number x x 10 (2 + -9) x (correct)

31 Practice Fix the following incorrect number x x 10 (4 + 3) x 10 7 (correct)
