Lesson Plan Day: 22 


Teacher: P. Kirk

Subject: Science

Course: Chemistry

Topic: Significant Figures, Scientific Notation and Metric Measurement



C.PM.1: Atomic structure, Evolution of atomic models/theory
C.PM.2: Periodic Table



 Show degree of proficiency of the identification and calculation of sig figs. Demonstrate conversion of numbers into and out of scientific notation and standard notation or expanded form. Convert measurements from given units to desired units within the metric system manipulating the decimal, by exponential powers, and by multiplying or dividing by 10.



Conversion, units, prefixes, base unit, main prefixes (Kilo, Hecto, Deka, deci, centi, milli)



The students will take and be evaluated by the Sig Fig, Scientific Notation and Metric measurement Quiz. They can use a scientific calculator and scrap paper. They should have the base prefix line memorized or use the phonetic device (King Henry doesn't usually drink chocolate milk.)



The teacher may do a brief review of the sig fig rules, scientific notation and metric measurements. Then administer the quiz to students. Multiple versions of the quiz may be used to minimize student cheating.



Copy multiple versions of the quiz. Provide calculators, scrap paper.



This Sig Fig, Scientific Notation and Metric Measurement Quiz is the culminating evaluation for five days worth of teaching.
