Our Compare Numbers in Scientific Notation lesson plan teaches students how to use the greater than, less than, and equal to symbols to compare numbers written in scientific notation. During this lesson, students are asked to complete a group activity in which they are each given a piece of paper with a number in scientific notation on it and have to sort themselves from greatest to least. Students are also asked to covert standard numbers into scientific notation.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to compare numbers written in scientific notation using greater than, less than, or equal to symbols.
