Student Experience 02: Powers of Ten BackgroundExpedition: Yellowstone! STaRRS Curriculum Materials
DescriptionPowers of Ten (P10) refers to scale. This scale can be an excellent tool to use when framing observations. In other words, P10 is a way of putting objects being observed into context using size as the focal point. Once students understand the terminology, it can be used to both communicate and focus attention.
