This 5E Lesson over Scientific Notation comes complete with a lesson plan, worksheets, task cards and a PowerPoint. Key features of the lesson:
-Standard Form to Scientific Notation and vice versa
-Writing final answers in Scientific Notation (after adding or subtracting) with a reminder of the exponent rules.
5E Lesson Plan:
*Engage: Use the “Number Sense No Calculator Page”. Do the students know how to move decimals? Use this worksheet to check. Give them 3 – 5 minutes. Trade papers and check answers. All answer keys are at the end of the PDF and on the Ppt. This one is slide 2 of the PowerPoint.
*Explore: Use PowerPoint slides 3-28 to further investigate the use of multiplying by powers of 10. Students will answer the questions in their heads first and then put the answers in their notes. Go over each slide and explain how to find the answers.
*Explain: Use the note page to discuss how scientific notation works. Explain that scientific notation is useful when dealing with very large numbers or very small numbers. This is also on slide 29 of the PowerPoint.
*Elaborate: Use the task cards to deepen understanding and to practice scientific notation. If there is a time crunch, then have some members of the group do the odd problems and the other members do the evens. This is also a good way to differentiate for your slower students. You will need to make a set of task cards for every group of four. The students do not have to do them in a certain order. There is an answer document provided. These answers are at the bottom of the PDF but are slide 30 of the Ppt.
+++++Homework - use the scientific notation worksheet as a way to practice writing final answers in scientific notation and to discuss exponent rules. They can use their phone calculator at home to do this lesson. Do some examples before sending home. Suggestions are on page 13 of the PDF.
*Evaluate: Ticket Out – Use PowerPoint slide 31. The students will write their answers on a sticky note or the tickets on page 19 and give it to the teacher as they leave the room.
