Good number sense is fundamental for success in estimation, approximation, and problem solving. We need to develop a sense of large numbers because newspaper and television news reports contain many references to large quantities. This activity has students working with large numbers to understand their relative magnitudes.

The activities are great; they are very "real-world" and relevant to students' lives and surroundings. Great incorporation of both technology resources and group work with clearly delineated expectations. I haven't looked ahead at the other lessons you've uploaded but, hopefully, there's something similar for extremely small numbers. If not, maybe that's one that I can help with :)
