  • Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Scientific Notation, Significant Figures | High School

    Activity: Chemistry is Out of This World

    In this activity, students will use data from the NASA Science Solar System Exploration website to practice dimensional analysis calculations. This resource was created for National Chemistry Week (NCW) 2018 theme, Chemistry is Out of This World, which focuses on the chemistry of and in outer space.

  • Review, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements | High School, Middle School

    Activity: Dimensional Analysis Show Down

    In this activity students will work cooperatively to solve conversion based problems using dimensional analysis. Students are required to independently determine an answer for each question and be able explain their method of solving with their peers. This activity is designed to allow students to work at their own pace, and for students to take on a teaching role by communicating their understanding with their peers.

  • Density, Identifying an Unknown, Mole Concept, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Molar Mass | High School

    Lab: Chemistry Composition Challenge

    In this inquiry based lab, students will design a method to solve three chemistry problems involving moles, molecules, and density.

  • Stoichiometry, Mole Concept, Dimensional Analysis | High School

    Lesson Plan: Map It Out!

    In this lesson, students should be able to use a graphic organizer to help them solve stoichiometry problems. This lesson utilizes the Cornell note format.

  • Density, Percent Composition, Accuracy, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Scientific Notation, Significant Figures, SI Units | High School

    Lesson Plan: Chemical Measurement Unit Plan

    The AACT High School Classroom Resource library has everything you need to put together a unit plan for your classroom: lessons, activities, labs, projects, videos, simulations, and animations. We constructed a unit plan for introducing concepts student need to collect and use chemical measurements: Percent Composition, Metric Units, Accuracy and Precision, Percent Error, Density, Scientific Notation, Significant Figures, and Unit Conversion. This unit is designed to be used at beginning of the school year and modified based on student math abilities.

  • Dimensional Analysis, SI Units | High School

    Lesson Plan: Dimensional Analysis and Unit Conversion

    In this lesson, students will learn how to use dimensional analysis for unit conversion problems. They will then practice the skill on several chemistry-based conversion problems.

  • Limiting Reactant, Dimensional Analysis | High School

    Lesson Plan: Map to Solving Limiting Reactant Problems

    In this lesson, students will learn how to follow a step-by-step problem solving method for limiting reactant stoichiometry problems. This method can be particularly beneficial for students who struggle with completing these calculations.

  • Dimensional Analysis, Scientific Notation, SI Units | High School

    Lesson Plan: Using Scientific Notation in Chemistry

    In this lesson, students will solve a variety of real-world problems using scientific notation. Students will listen to a convoluted radio conversation about coffee which will relate to a math-based problem that this lesson is developed around. Students will begin to recognize the benefits of using scientific notation in their calculations.

  • Dimensional Analysis | Middle School, High School

    Activity: Unit Conversion Online Tutorial

    In this activity, students will interact with a web-based tutorial that uses a drag and drop interface in order to learn how to convert between units of measurement using dimensional analysis. The tutorial allows students to learn at their own pace, and also provides feedback while they are solving problems.
