Alabama Course of Study Standards:
5

Estimate and compare very large or very small numbers in scientific notation. 
Arkansas Academic Standards:
8.EE.A.3

Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other
For example: Estimate the population of the United States as 3 times 108 and the population of the world as 7 times 109, and determine that the world population is more than 20 times larger. 
Arizona  K12 Academic Standards:
8.EE.A.3

Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and express how many times larger or smaller one is than the other. 
Common Core State Standards:
Math.8.EE.3 or 8.EE.A.3

Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other. For example, estimate the population of the United States as 3 × 10^{8} and the population of the world as 7 × 10^{9}, and determine that the world population is more than 20 times larger. 
Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE):
8.NR.2.3

Use numbers expressed in scientific notation to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other. 
North Carolina  Standard Course of Study:
8.EE.3

Use numbers expressed in scientific notation to estimate very large or very small quantities and to express how many times as much one is than the other. 
New York State Next Generation Learning Standards:
8.EE.3

Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities, and to express how many times as much one is than the other. e.g., Estimate the population of the United States as 3 × 10^{8} and the population of the world as 7 × 10^{9}, and determine that the
world population is more than 20 times larger. 
Wisconsin Academic Standards:
8.EE.A.3

Use numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 to estimate very large or very small quantities and to express how many times as much one is than the other. For example, estimate the population of the United States as 3 × 10^{8} and the population of the world as 7 × 10^{9}, and determine that the world population is more than 20 times larger.

Choose units of appropriate size for measurements of very large or very small quantities (e.g., use
millimeters per year for seafloor spreading). 
Pennsylvania Core Standards:
CC.2.2.8.B.1

Apply concepts of radicals and integer exponents to generate equivalent expressions. 
Pennsylvania Core Standards:
M08.BE.1.1.3

Estimate very large or very small quantities by using numbers expressed in the form of a single digit times an integer power of 10 and express how many times larger or smaller one number is than another. 
Pennsylvania Core Standards:
M08.BE.1.1.4

Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used. Express answers in 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 (e.g., interpret 4.7EE9 displayed on a calculator as4.7 × 109)
