Student of ALL ages love to draw and color… especially in Math Class!
Math Mugshots are a GREAT way to review math concepts while providing some “color” to math class. You can use this activity to review for a test, as a homework assignment, as extra credit, or as an assessment.
Mathematical Concepts in THIS activity:
•Convert from standard form to scientific notation (positive and negative exponents)
•Convert from scientific notation to standard form (positive and negative exponents)
•Adjust numbers and exponents when necessary
•Add numbers in scientific notation (like exponents)
•Subtract numbers in scientific notation (unlike exponents)
•Multiply numbers in scientific notation
•Divide numbers in scientific notation
How to use this activity:
1. Hand out student worksheets and instruct students to solve each of the problems.
2. When all of the problems are solved, hand out answer sheets. Tell the students to find and highlight their answers on this sheet. This will help them to check their work and make corrections, if necessary.
3. Hand out copies of the blank “WANTED” poster. Each correct answer corresponds to specific feature of the Mugshot. Students will LOVE drawing and coloring their suspects!
4. Hint: It looks GREAT if the kids outline their pictures with a black Sharpie!
Common Core Standard:
Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used.
