UNIT 1 Objectives
Essential Question: How can problems be solved in a systematic manner?
You will identify the steps of the scientific method and use it to solve a problem.
Essential Question: How do we give meaning and dimension to our descriptions of the world around us?
You will determine which unit is appropriate for what measurement, Use the Reference Tables to determine magnitude metric prefixes, Determine the number of significant figures in any measurement and determine the precision of the measuring device that made a given measurement.
Essential Question: How do you round off the answers to math problems?
You will round off answers to math problems involving measurements using the rules for rounding set down today.
Essential Question: How is the data compression in .mp3 and ZIP files mirrored in scientific notation? ·
You will convert decimal numbers into scientific notation, convert numbers in scientific notation back to decimal notation and compare the relative sizes of numbers in scientific notation.
Essential Question: How can units be used to solve problems for you?
You will create conversion factors for metric conversions and use them to convert from one metric unit to another, using units to solve problems for you.
Essential Question: How can we make sense of data and use it to make predictions?
You will design, create and properly label graphs, and use graphs to interpolate, extrapolate and generalize relationships between variables.
