Scientific Notation Worksheets

Scientific notation is a smart way of writing huge whole numbers and too small decimal numbers. This page contains worksheets based on rewriting whole numbers or decimals in scientific notation and rewriting scientific notation form to standard form. The worksheets are based on performing math operations with scientific notation included.

Scientific Notation - Positive Exponents

Express in Scientific Notation

Each worksheet contains 14 problems rewriting whole numbers to scientific notation. Easy level has whole numbers up to 5-digits; Medium level has more than 5-digit numbers.
