Place Value and Scientific Notation Worksheets

An unlimited supply of worksheets for place value and scientific notation: write numbers in expanded form, write numbers given in expanded form in normal form, write numbers in scientific notation, or write numbers given in scientific notation in normal form. These topics span grades 2-7. The worksheets are available both as PDF and html files.

You can customize the worksheets in various ways: you can choose the maximum number of digits and maximum number of decimal digits used in the problem. The script will automatically vary the number of digits in the problems, up to that limit. You can also choose your multiplication symbol, decimals separator, and thousands separator. The worksheets can be generated either as PDF or html files.


Basic instructions for the worksheets

Each worksheet is randomly generated and thus unique. The answer key is automatically generated and is placed on the second page of the file.

You can generate the worksheets either in html or PDF format — both are easy to print. To get the PDF worksheet, simply push the button titled "Create PDF" or "Make PDF worksheet". To get the worksheet in html format, push the button "View in browser" or "Make html worksheet". This has the advantage that you can save the worksheet directly from your browser (choose File → Save) and then edit it in Word or other word processing program.

Sometimes the generated worksheet is not exactly what you want. Just try again! To get a different worksheet using the same options:

  • PDF format: come back to this page and push the button again.
  • Html format: simply refresh the worksheet page in your browser window.
