**Title:** Let's Get SCIENTIFIC with Numbers!

**Description:**
Using calculators, students will write and interpret large and small numbers using scientific and calculator notation. This exploration will also help students to develop an understanding of the ways exponents are used in writing and multiplying large and small numbers using scientific notation.
**Standard(s): **

[MA2015] (8) 6: Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used. Use scientific notation and choose units of appropriate size for measurements of very large or very small quantities (e.g., use millimeters per year for seafloor spreading). Interpret scientific notation that has been generated by technology. [8-EE4]

**Title:** Count on Math

**Description:**
In this unit of two lessons, from Illuminations, students develop number sense through activities involving collection, representation, and analysis of data. In addition, students practice reading and writing large numbers and use estimation to arrive at appropriate answers.
**Standard(s): **

[MA2015] AL1 (9-12) 43: Interpret differences in shape, center, and spread in the context of the data sets, accounting for possible effects of extreme data points (outliers). [S-ID3]
