Lesson: Scientific Notation
This is an important tool used to manipulate very large and very small numbers, easily; utilizing decimals and exponents. The Scientific Notation rule is to move the number of the negative exponent to the left of the decimal and when the exponent is positive move the decimal that many times to the right to exact results when solving quadratic equations.
HICAP uses exponents to distinguish which version of 'Discussion K' is being highlighted in coursework.
