This page allows you to practice predicting exponents for basic operations involving
numbers in presented in proper scientific notation. When you press "New Problem" either a
multiplication or division problem involving two numbers in scientific notation will be displayed to the left of the table. In the answer cell, enter the value of the exponent that results if the
operation is carried out and the result expressed in proper scientific notation. Then, press
"Check Answer." Results appear on the main page. When the small window appears for the first time, youmay have to drag it to an empty space. From then on, it will remain out of the way. Do not use a calculator on this page or you will defeat its purpose.
- If you miss a problem three times, pressing the "Show Answer" will cause the correct answer to appear.
