PRODUCT DESCRIPTION FOR THE FIRST HALF OF THE BUNDLE
* The following lesson covering Scientific Notation includes discussion and examples over writing numbers in decimal notation from scientific notation.
* The lesson offers instruction and examples over writing numbers in scientific notation from decimal notation.
* Additionally, solving for multiplication and division operations, as well as operations using exponents with Scientific Notation is explained in a clear understandable manner.
* A real life example is presented that pertains to finding the volume of a planet in our solar system by using the formula for volume and employing a given radius for the planet. The answer is provided and exact steps in reaching the solution are included.
* The lesson is aligned with common core standards and "across the curriculum" expectations.
* Please share my enthusiasm for this resource. I believe that students will enjoy the material provided, as it is clearly presented and displayed on the slides, and instructors will find it practical.
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE BUNDLE:
I love to close the school year in mathematics with a great activity for my students! The following activity is just that for the kids...!
* Working with a partner, students create a model of the solar system on adding
* Students convert into scientific notation the distances
between each planet and the sun.
* Students record all calculations onto a provided table.
* Students Select a scale to use in creating their model of the solar system.
* Students determine the position of each planet, fitting each to scale.
* Students answer five analysis questions that involve review of previously learned
material: writing inequalities for "between", "at least", and "at most".
* Ratios using scientific notation are included where students must divide scientific
notation and then adjust decimals and exponents to simplify.
* Students verbalize, in their own words, concerning the value of using scientific
* Students work independently to create a map of the solar system on graph paper
using a scale that they select.
* This activity is fun for students and involves mathematical reasoning along with
some great creativity they may employ simultaneously while doing their
* The lesson is aligned with Common Core and "Across the Curriculum" standards.
* I am confident that students will enjoy the activity, learn a great deal, and
instructors will find the activity supportive of the lesson on scientific notation as well
as lessons previously taught.
* This is ideal for a bit of review prior to final exams!
* Please enjoy!
LOVE TO TEACH!
