Product Description
Students will practice comparing numbers written in scientific notation and standard form. Each number represented in scientific notation has a corresponding number in standard form. Negative numbers and negative exponents are both used in this game. Numbers will look very similar so that students really have to understand the difference between a negative number and a negative exponent. Played just like the traditional card game, Math War is a game played in pairs or small groups with an objective of obtaining the greatest number of cards. Students turn over one card at a time and compare the value of the number on the card. Whichever student has the card with the largest value keeps all the cards. If the value is the same, students flip three cards upside down and one right side up and compare. The game is over when a student has all of the cards or the time is up.

Included in this product:
-36 cards (to be copied with logo on back)
-Answer Key
-Teacher's Guide with CCSS, objective, materials, and procedure
