****Expressions & Equations: Work with radicals and integer exponents.****8.EE.A.3

Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other.

8.EE.A.4

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

__Student Objectives__

I can recognize numbers written in scientific notation.

I can differentiate between very large and very small numbers written in scientific notation.

Given a number written in standard form, I can write it in scientific notation.

__Bellwork__

Students will complete the "Scientific Notation Pretest."

__Lesson__(Introduction to Scientific Notation/Standard Form to Scientific Notation)

1. Anticipatory set: "Scientific Notation Attention Generator," ie. text message journal entry

2. Introduction to scientific notation: Schmoop's scientific notation video

3. Direct instruction: scientific notation foldable, entry 1-definition, examples/non-examples, steps for writing a number in scientific notation from standard form

4. Guided practice writing numbers in scientific notation with a partner, dry erase boards, markers

5. Independent practice: "Scientific Notation in the Real World" worksheet

__Closing__

Exit ticket: "Scientific Notation Examples"

__Homework__

-There will be a test over scientific notation on Monday, April 13. It will include review questions over exponents.

-Students will finish the "Scientific Notation in the Real World" worksheet for homework.
