Scientific Notation and other math practice

Today students started class with an Accuracy and Precision Challenge. Students practiced with bullseyes, data, and calculated percent error. Too many people to name in third period got a perfect score, but only Katelin in fourth got a perfect. Congrats to everyone with a perfect score and good job to all participants.

We went over the homework from the weekend (B H I) and discussed our answers. We made sure everyone knew how to do the dimensional analysis math in box I and then did quite a few practice problems. Everyone knows how to do it, they only think they don't. Fourth period is particularly good at setting these problems up.

We discussed scientific notation and then did a few practice problems involving the multi-pli-cation of numbers in scientific notation.

Homework tonight - E and M
Rainbow Labs are due tomorrow.
