8th Grade Math Scientific Notation Lesson Plan

This 8th grade math scientific notation lesson plan aligns with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Students will learn about the concept of scientific notation and how to convert numbers into scientific notation and vice versa. The lesson begins with an introduction to basic scientific notation vocabulary, such as exponent, base, and order of magnitude. Students will then explore how to perform operations with numbers in scientific notation, such as multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction. 

They will also learn how to apply the concept of scientific notation to solve practical problems, such as measuring distances in space or working with very large or very small numbers. The lesson includes interactive activities and opportunities for student collaboration, and assessments to ensure mastery of the concept. By the end of this lesson, students will have a solid foundation in scientific notation that they can build upon in future math classes.
