Finally, a way to make lesson on scientific notation, sig figs, metric conversions and density problems interesting! Let’s be honest, teaching sig figs and scientific notation is not the most exciting topic in chemistry. I put together my Titanic Unit as a way of inspiring the students to use math to find out more about the Titanic; a topic I have found which students are naturally curious.
I use this particular packet as a way to assess my students on the data topics that we cover in chemistry but it could be used as notes, class practice or homework.
I incorporate several other activities which tie into scientific notation, data, sig figs and metric system as part of my Titanic Unit please see my TPT store for more activities. I will soon be uploading the entire unit & lesson plans for purchase as well.
The Sinking of the Titanic is something which has always captured my imagination. I hope it inspires your students as it has mine and invigorates what can be a very dull unit!
