Significant Digits, Unit Conversions, Classification of Matter

 

Follow the links below for our “reading” for this week. Make sure to follow these links in order as there are some web “applets” that I would like you to use to test your knowledge in these areas before moving on to the next topic! This week all the "problems" you will be solving are incorporated into the websites and applets themselves, so there are no additional answers that will be posted.

 

Chemistry - Central Science Live - To use this website, click on the “eChapter” link on the left, then in the upper left corner there is a pull-down menu that will say “Select Location.” Go through sections 1.1 to 1.4 at this time.


Scientific Notation Applet - This applet explains scientific notation and gives examples of calculations using numbers in scientific notation.


Temperature Conversions Applet - This applet goes through the three main temperature scales and has some problems to solve using equations that are explained throughout the applet.


Chemistry - Central Science Live - To use this website, click on the “eChapter” link on the left, then in the upper left corner there is a pull-down menu that will say “Select Location.” Go through only section 1.5 at this time.


Significant Figures Applet - This applet gives more examples of determining significant figures and how to calculate when significant figures are a concern.


Chemistry - Central Science Live - To use this website, click on the “eChapter” link on the left, then in the upper left corner there is a pull-down menu that will say “Select Location.” Go through only section 1.6 at this time. Later on you may look through the “Chapter Summary” for additional practice problems over this entire section.


Dimensional Analysis Applet - This applet provides a more in-depth look into calculations using conversion units.

This wraps up the first chapter of AP Chemistry!
