Course 3, Lesson 51, Negative Exponents/Sci. Notation for Small Numbers

Author: Hector Soto

1. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. 2. Know and apply the properties of integer exponents to generate equivalent numerical expressions. 3. Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other. 4. Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used. Use scientific notation and choose units of appropriate size for measurements of very large or very small quantities (e.g., use millimeters per year for seafloor spreading). Interpret scientific notation that has been generated by technology.
