ENTRY TICKET: Compare your work with a neighbor. How are you doing, so far?
LEARNING TARGET: Use metric equalities as ratios in dimensional analysis to convert between units in problem-solving.
IN CLASS: Complete Significant Zeros inquiry. Sigfigs in scientific notation. Use scientific notation to express significant figures in numbers with leading or trailing zeros. Look at our work so far and apply sig fig rules to problems.
TO DO: Review your Conversion Factor Practice for proper use of sigfigs.

FOG DAY
17
DUE TODAY:
ENTRY TICKET: Write 1500 m, 1500.0 m, 0.00015 m and 0.0001500 m in scientific notation.
LEARNING TARGET
Explain the difference between derived units as used in chemistry and fundamental units and use each in dimensional analysis and mathematical equations to solve problems. Define density as a relationship between the mass and volume of an object or substance. Write density as a ratio of mass per unit volume; as a conversion factor in calculations.
IN CLASS: Quiz; Scientific Notation and sig figs summary. Two types of calculations practice strategies for problem-solving.
TO DO: Density calculations
