Scientific Notation
Powers of 10 – what they are and how to complete different mathematical operations
Significant Digits
Accuracy vs. Precision (think of the dart boards)
Percent error
SI Units
o Length = meter (m)
o Mass = kilogram (kg)  use gram (g) for your base unit when converting
o Volume = Liter (L)  remember that 1 mL = 1 cm3
o Temperature = Kelvin (K), Celsius (oC)  K = oC + 273
o Energy = Joule
Metric Prefixes
o Kilo103
o Deci10-1
o Centi10-2
o Milli10-3
o Micro10-6
o Nano10-9
Dimensional Analysis (Conversions)
o Multiply the # you are trying to convert, by a conversion factor.
o Conversion factors are equalities, such as 1ft=12in, or 60sec=1min.
o Write the conversion factor as a fraction, with the unit you want to cancel out in the
denominator.
Ex. Convert 5 hours to seconds
5hrs x 60 min x 60 sec = 18, 000 sec
1 hr
1 min
Density = mass
volume
units: g
cm3
or
g
mL

Distinguish between states of matter (chart in your notes- definite vs. indefinite)
Distinguish between physical and chemical properties.
Distinguish between physical and chemical changes.
- Know several signs of a chemical change
Classify matter –Pure Substances (elements and compounds)
-Mixtures (homogeneous and heterogeneous)
Distinguish between extensive (the extent of matter) and intensive properties (sample size does
NOT matter)
Know how to separate different types of separation (filter, evaporation, distillation, etc.)
Review vocab on pages 21, 49, 81 – no need to memorize, just be familiar with it
