Scientific Notation Bingo!
This BINGO activity consists of 20 problems and 20 unique bingo cards. The problems include the following skills:
*Converting from Standard Form to Scientific Notation (Positive and Negative Exponents)
*Converting from Scientific Notation to Standard Form (Positive and Negative Exponents)
*Comparing Numbers in Scientific Notation
*Writing Numbers in Proper Form (by adjusting the coefficient and the exponent)
*Adding Numbers in Scientific Notation (with and without a common exponent)
*Subtracting Numbers in Scientific Notation (with and without a common exponent)
*Multiplying Numbers in Scientific Notation
*Dividing Numbers in Scientific Notation
This activity is a perfect way to review before a test and the kids really love it!
1. Print and distribute bingo cards. You may want to laminate them for future use.
2. If you choose to reuse the cards, the students will need markers or chips. If not, they can simply cross off the answers
with their pencil.
3. Hand out scratch paper as the students will be required to solve each problem using the formulas and strategies they’ve
learned in class.
4. Using an interactive whiteboard, project each problem one at a time. Each problem is on a separate page, so this works
well. If you are unable to project the problems, you can read each problem aloud and/or write them on the board.
Provide ample wait time in between problems so that every student is able to solve the problem and find the solution on
Winning the game:
Short version (takes about 15 minutes) - The object is to get 4 in a row - horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.
Long version (takes about 25 minutes) - The object is to get all of the answers that “frame” the card (the outside
perimeter - 12 boxes). This will take longer and provide more review!
After the first winner calls “Bingo”, I keep going (because the kids do not want to stop playing!) and generally end up with several winners in each class.
