This animated PowerPoint is great for introducing a topic and helping students with a reference when they forget definitions. The presentation begins with outlining objectives and ends with a summary slide to guide students to important information as a "take away" from the lesson. Each slide also comes with notes so that you may print them out for your students so they have guided note taking with blanks to fill in so they improve this crucial skill.

In this lesson we go over scientific notation. First the slides dedicate time to explaining how our base 10 number system allows us to simply move decimals right or left when multiplying or dividing by 10. The lesson then builds on this idea to demonstrate how very large and very small numbers can be represented more easily in scientific notation. Students will see how positive exponents move decimals right for large numbers and negative exponents move decimals left for very small numbers.
