This animated Math Shorts video from UEN explains the term scientific notation and provides several examples in converting extreme numbers to and from scientific notation. It also demonstrates how to multiply numbers using scientific notation. In the accompanying classroom activity, students practice writing numbers in scientific notation and develop real-world problems for each other to solve. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
