Space tourism is only a matter of time. Prepare your students of intergalactic travel with a little bit of scientific notation practice mixed in :-)
In this 12 page PDF, you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, 3 different assignments for students to use, and an answer key.
Download the preview to see pretty much everything!
-- In “Planetary Distances” students use subtraction of scientific notation to find the distance between planets using their distance from the sun.
-- In “Need for Speed” students will practice using scientific notation in distance, rate and time problems. This will require multiplying and dividing numbers in scientific notation.
-- In “My Space Vacation” students will tie all of the skills together. Students will need to multiply, divide, add and subtract numbers in scientific notation. Students are given travel information for four different alien races and will use the data in an attempt to learn more about the aliens.
EVERYTHING IS ALIGNED TO THE COMMON CORE! YAY!
