Those will be used to find out how many times larger or smaller two countries are between one another. There are two sets of cards (20 problems) of matched correctly cards and a set of incorrectly matched that are ready to print and for students to cut and begin matching. An answer key is provided with areas for work space as well. This activity can be used individually, in small groups, cards set up in stations or a whole class activity!

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 × 10⁸ and the population of the world as 7 × 10⁹, and determine that the world population is more than 20 times larger.
