Unit conversions and scientific graphs

Sorry I can’t be in class today, kids – I know you’re disappointed to have a cover teacher – so here’s the low-down on what you need to do while I’m out:

  1. Review the homework problems to make sure you have the correct answers and understand the process. The process is more important than the answers.
  2. Watch the dimensional analysis video linked here, then complete the quiz on that website to verify you understand how to do dimensional analysis.
  3. Go through my zombie presentation – yes, zombies do in fact know how to do dimensional analysis – and work all the practice problems in the presentation. You may do this with a partner if you want, and I’ll go over the answers with you next lesson.
  4. Review the document titled, “How to create graphs for science” and create a bullet-point list of all the required parts of a scientific graph. I’ll check this list as another homework check next lesson.

Here’s the zombie presentation:
