• February 27, 2014  Intro to Scientific Notation
• Scientific Notation
• Scientific Notation Just as exponents are a shorthand method representing multiplication, scientific notation is a shorthand method for representing vary large (distance from Earth to the Sun) and very small (width of an atom) numbers. As with exponents, very specific rules apply to their proper use. Unlike exponents, the rules are few and straightforward.
• Scientific Notation
• From To How Scientific Notation Standard Form: 1.86 • 106 = 1,860,000 Large Number Move decimal 6 places to the right. Add zeroes if needed. Scientific Notation Standard Form: 1.86 •10-5 = .0000186 Small Number Move decimal 5 places to the left. Add zeroes if needed. Standard Form Scientific Notation: Large Number Standard Form Scientific Notation: Small Number Standard Form: With Decimals Scientific Notation: With Decimals 1,860,000 = 1.86 • 106 Begin at far right of number. Count place values moving left until there is a single digit to the left. Place decimal point here. 1.28 •10-3 = .00128 Begin at decimal and move 3 places to the left. Add zeroes if needed. 2 135.6 = 1.356 • 10 Begin one place to the right of first number. Count places until you reach original decimal point.
