In this lesson, students will use whole numbers to denote powers of 10. Explain patterns in the number of zeros when multiplying any powers of 10 by any other powers of 10. Look for and express regularity in repeated calculations of powers of 10 multiplied by other powers of 10, and explain patterns in the number of zeros in the product. Use exponents to denote powers of 10. Convert between exponential form, standard form, and multiplication sentences that represent powers of 10.
