Here is an example of scientific notation.  Remember to read the lesson on this topic.

Basic steps to follow:

1. Scientific notation is a method to write very large or small numbers in a power – power of 10
2. The key idea in scientific notation is to move the decimal point of the number to for a new number between 1 and 10
3. Count the number of digits required to write the number as a number between 1 and 10; this will be the exponent to the power of 10
