Your students will be smiling and laughing as they practice scientific notation in this fun Speed Dating activity. They won't even realize they working on a common core standard!
Speed Dating activities allow students to build confidence as they become experts at a particular problem and coach others through it. At they same time, students are challenged to a variety of other problems as they master scientific notation.
The last two problems (cards 11 and 12) appear to be in standard notation, but are not (see the first thumbnail image). These are great to start your high achievers on so they can be the experts of a more challenging concept and explain it to other students!
Included in this product:
Two Sets of 12 cards with answers (sets have the same problems but are labeled "A" and "B" for easier management)
Speed Dating Recording Sheet
Speed Dating Instructions for Teacher
