Making Scientific Notation Fun in the Secondary Classroom

Scientific Notation is one of those things I don't at all remember learning. I mean, it must have happened somewhere along the line, but where that was is a complete mystery. Maybe it was during those foggy junior high years when I was much more concerned about the height of my hair and keeping my skirts from clinking to my pantyhoes. Anyway, when a teacher asked me last year to make her some some Scientific Notation pennants, I decided after a bit I'd be up for a challenge. It's fun [re]learning new things.

A couple months ago when another teacher asked if I could make a few extra pennants for dividing Scientific Notation that were a little easier, I made her a set of 10 that her struggling learners could do and feel successful. You can find them for **FREE** in the "freebies!" section of the sidebar of my blog --->

They're labeled #31 through #40 and can be used along with this set of 30 **Dividing Scientific Notation pennants** that are in my TpT store.

If you are looking for pennants for all types of work with Scientific Notation, I also put together a discounted bundle with 120 pennants for **adding**, **subtracting**, **multiplying** and **dividing** scientific notation.
Knowing that I was going to write this post, I asked some friends if they have any resources that make learning and practicing Scientific Notation fun. Tyra from Algebra and Beyond highly recommends these **Scientific Notation Stations **from Free To Discover. There are 6 stations that give practice on all sorts of Scientific Notation problems.

Kara from Learning Made Radical has this fun, fall-themed **coloring activity** that covers multiplying and dividing in Scientific Notation

and a **Scientific Notation foldable** to help kids remember what to do with that pesky decimal.

Mandy from Math Dyal makes awesome puzzles that get kids engaged in their learning and her **Scientific Notation puzzle** does just that:

And here are some other resources for teaching and practicing Scientific Notation:

Great ideas! I love your bundle with 120 pennants so teachers and students can mix and match operations!
