Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

Use appropriate tools strategically.

Attend to precision.

Look for and make use of structure.

Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used. Use scientific notation and choose units of appropriate size for measurements of very large or very small quantities (e.g., use millimeters per year for seafloor spreading). Interpret scientific notation that has been generated by technology.
