This resource is also part of the Nuclear Chemistry Bundle!
This Half-Life Problems Leprechaun themed worksheet is a two-page worksheet that helps students practice setting up simple half-life decay tables. The students have to figure out how much of a substance will be left after a given amount of time, how many half-lives have passed if there is a given quantity of the substance present, and how long it will take for a substance to decay to a given amount. It also reviews half-life graphs.
It is leprechaun-themed to make the problems more fun! For example... Rainbowium-123 has a half-life of 4 days. How many days will it take for a 35 gram sample to decay to less than 1 gram?
This can be used in the month of March, near St. Patrick's Day, or really any time as a fun review of half-life problems and half-life graphs. The answer key is included.
