A concise 1-page quiz worth 22 points that assesses student understanding of the scientific notation, including how to express numbers in expanded form to scientific notation, adding and subtracting with scientific notation, as well as multiplying and dividing with scientific notation.

I typically use this short assessment to gauge student understanding of scientific notation after covering this topic through a presentation, reading, and review worksheet. A link to the corresponding 2-page reading and review worksheet is found below.

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.
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.
Know and apply the properties of integer exponents to generate equivalent numerical expressions. For example, 3² × (3⁻⁵) = (3⁻³) = 1/3³ = 1/27.
