This classic Domino game is a great way to review and reinforce problem solving with scientific notation. Students will solve a variety of real world and mathematical problems. It is designed as a classroom station for groups of four. However, a student could play individually or partners could play together. It works perfectly in stations as it is easily differentiated. As my students are rotating from one station to the next, I can switch out the big deck for a smaller one to modify the game for a lower level group. This activity contains 18 dominoes. I laminate the included directions to keep at the station. There is also a sheet for students to show their work.
An answer key is unnecessary as the problems in the file go in order. That is, each problem is answered on the following domino and the last problem is answered on the first. You can print a copy to use as a key.
My students love the domino station.

Look out for this activity and many others in my eight grade bundles at a deep discount!!! Coming Soon!
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. For example, estimate the population of the United States as 3 times 108 and the population of the world as 7 times 109, and determine that the world population is more than 20 times larger.
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
