Tutorial

These are slides for instructor-led, in-class problems that starts with simple conversions, but transitions into more complex, multi-unit conversion problems. This would be done after the small-group handout was completed in class by the students (see above: Scientific Notation and Unit Conversion)

An in class, small-group handout with scientific notation and unit conversion problems. This is done in class the first day with students having prior knowledge and understanding of scientific notation. This is the first step transitioning the students into unit conversions and dimensional analysis.

Video by Kevin Davies as an introduction to the factor-label method and dimensional analysis for converting units. This is the first of three videos that the students watch at home after completing the small-group activity (Scientific Notation & Unit Conversion) and working through the instructor-led problems (Unit Conversions).

Video by Kevin Davies that gives an example problem and shows how conversion factors can be used in dimensional analysis problems. This is a second in the series of three videos that the students watch at home after completing the small-group activity (Scientific Notation & Unit Conversion) and working through the instructor-led problems (Unit Conversions).

Video by Kevin Davies that goes through a more complex multi-unit conversion problem using dimensional analysis. This is the third in the series of three videos that the students watch at home after completing the small-group activity (Scientific Notation & Unit Conversion) and working through the instructor-led problems (Unit Conversions). The students would then complete a short quiz at the end of this video.

Dimensional Analysis problems designed as an in-class activity that follows the three videos that the students previously watched outside the classroom.
