Solve scientific notation problems by multiplying and adding a fun riddle with it! This activity can be used by completing the 12 riddle problems. The activity could also be used as a student self-check, if students do not complete answers correctly they will not solve the riddle correctly. The answers will be in positive and negative form. These are great introduction problems, it works on students moving the decimal to the right or left to have the same exponent, then they can solve the problem.
