MAFS.8.EE.1.3

Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other. For example, estimate the population of the United States as 3 ×  and the population of the world as 7 × , and determine that the world population is more than 20 times larger.
Subject Area: Mathematics

Domain-Subdomain: Expressions & Equations
Cluster: Level 1: Recall
Cluster: Work with radicals and integer exponents. (Major Cluster) -

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
