Day 18 - Thursday, May 28
Welcome to Day 18 of eLearning. The topic today is half-life and rates
of nuclear decay.
Here's What to Do:
Packet pages are available online and can be printed as needed. You
would not have any of these pages since we started this unit after the
dismissal of school due to COVID19.
- Video - Half Life (13 min)
H discusses rates of decay and the concept of a half-life. He mixes in
a little M into the equation to explain quantitatively how a half-life
value can be used to quantitatively predict the drop off in the amount of
isotope relative to time.
- Check Chapter 19.3-4 Reading (5 - 10 min)

- WebAssign - Half Life (15 - 30 min)
Get our your calculator and use the mathematics presented in the video
to complete the last WebAssign of your STEM Chemistry career. You
- Video - Radiation Exposure CANCELLED
video has been cancelled. Of course, you can find plenty on the topic
via a YouTube search. But instead of watching the video, I would prefer
that you read about next week's lesson plan. There will be a single
activity to complete next week.

*** Take attendance by 1 pm. Check your email for an attendance form from the Attendance office.
Coming Next Class:
Next week is our last week. There will be a short video (not related to
a Chemistry topic) and a single assignment. The assignment will be
summative in nature and require some thought and reflection.
