It's Not Rocket Science

What educators are saying

The use of the powerpoint and practice prior to the lab was amazing. My students actually were able to navigate through the conversions fairly easily after that prep work was done.
My kids actually enjoyed Dimensional Analysis with this activity! Must have for any class that teaches DA & Scientific Notation!


This pack includes everything you need to teach dimensional analysis and scientific notation skills in your science or math class. Detailed notes, practice problems, an engaging lab activity, and a quiz are all included. Often times it is hard for students to understand the big picture and real world application of the content we teach them – especially when it comes to math skills. The lab included in this pack is an excellent way for students to apply their dimensional analysis and scientific notation skills to a real world situation – making fudge. Best part of all, students actually get to make the fudge based on their calculations! Students will leave your class with a mastery of dimensional analysis and scientific notation, as well as a satisfied sweet tooth!

Note: This lab activity is included in the Scientific Method Unit and the Physical Science Curriculum Bundle, so do not purchase if you already have either of these products because you already own this!
