Scientific notation is expressing very large or small numbers as a power of 10. For example 300 is 3x10^2. You can understand the powers of 10 as moving the decimal place a certain number of times. 300 is basically 3 with the decimal moved to the right 2 times. Other examples: 0.03 is 3x10^-2 256 is 2.56x10^2
