If you've ever felt like you were in fantasy land when you've taught scientific notation, you are not alone. In this whimsical 21st Century Math Project, a human will journey to two fictional cities Giantville (where all the numbers are enormous) and Tinytown (where all the numbers are microscopic). Help the human navigate through the cities and even arrange trade between them!
In this 16 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards and three assignments. Included are:
-- In “Welcome to Giantville” and “Tinytown Welcomes You” students become acquainted with translating between scientific to standard notation.
-- In “Shopping in Giantville” and “Shopping in Tinytown” students practice basic operations with scientific notation.
-- In “Giantville Meets Tinytown: International Trade” students brainstorm a solution for converting between the currencies of the two countries. Students will then use these conversions to complete order forms for exports from each of the countries. This will be an opportunity for students to explore developing an algorithm.
An answer key has been added to the end of the file for your convenience.
