Scientific Notation Task Card Activity
Scientific Notation: Using expressions with numbers expressed in scientific notation: Practice and Review is a great way to practice, review and assess student understanding of scientific notation (CCSS 8.EE.A.4, 8.EE.A.3). One set of cards has expressions. The other set has the expressions simplified. Students match the expression to the simplified form through scavenger hunts, games, and more. Answer key, interactive notebook-sized cards and large cards, and suggested uses included. My students LOVE these.

See how I use these and other matching cards in the two part series on practice and review on the blog.
