Lesson Summary: These two lessons come in a larger unit after students have already learned to compare the relative values of fractions, decimals and percentages. It not only teaches how to use scientific notation, but also how to compare these values to other parts of a whole. Not only does this lesson include notes and practice worksheets, including answer keys, it also includes practice with practical examples such as parts of the cell, comparing the sizes of planets, and examining the US population. The preview for this lesson includes thumbnails of all the worksheets.
