Reviewer Comments:

This collection of materials is appropriate for the high school classroom, and can be adapted for use at other levels. Although the PowerPoint presentation contains a few minor spelling errors (slide 1 - “publication” and slide 4 – “matter”), it is comprehensive in its material, covering topics of precision and accuracy, experimental error, significant figures, and scientific notation. The accompanying worksheets and quiz are varied and well organized. A few problems refer to a specific textbook, but can easily be adapted for broader use. The test review sheet lists vocabulary and concepts, leaving blank space for comments and notes. The quiz does requires users to draw in "bullet holes" for problem #10. All parts of this resource are immediately useful in the classroom, although it will take time initially to create answer keys for the worksheets, quiz and practice problems.

Hi Sandy,
I am so glad to see you posting in Curriki. Could you make some of the descriptions in these resources a little clearer so instead of just science, others look at the resource can know what book you are using and what the discipline is? Thanks again and I love the chemistry unit! Meredith
