- Convert numbers between the two representations standard form and scientific notation
- Convert numbers in standard form to scientific notation.
- Only one digit if front of the decimal point and it can't be a zero.
- A times 10 part (x10) with an exponent.
- The value of the exponent is the number of places you moved the decimal pont.
- The sign on the exponent is the direction you need to move the decimal back to get the original number:

(Use a + sign if the decimal needs to move in the positive direction -->)

(Use a - sign if the decimal needs to move in the negative direction <--) - Convert numbers in scientific notation to standard form .
- The exponent tells how many places to move the decimal point to get the original number.
- The sign tells which direction to move the decimal point to get the original number:

(if the sign is + the decimal needs to move in the positive direction -->)

(if the sign is - the decimal needs to move in the negative direction <--)
