In this lesson I will teach you about scientific notation. The topic has to do with very large and small numbers- those that we often find in science. What we will be doing in the lesson is rewriting these very big/small numbers as a power of 10. Then we will use the rules of powers and exponents to simplify and solve problems. You want to have a scientific calculator when doing this lesson as it will make some of the basic arithmetic easier. Scientific notation is a great example of how math is used in the real world and I’m certain you will see it in most of your math and science courses- hence learn it well!
