Instructors present these engaging video lessons so that they are easy to follow. They can also answer your questions when you submit them via the dashboard. Make sure to take the multiple-choice quizzes to gauge your retention of the above concepts before you go on to take the MTLE Chemistry exam.
1. The Metric System: Units and Conversion
Just like you and your friend communicate using the same language, scientists all over the world need to use the same language when reporting the measurements they make. This language is called the metric system. In this lesson we will cover the metric units for length, mass, volume, density and temperature, and also discuss how to convert among them.
2. Regression Analysis: Definition & Examples
Watch this video lesson to learn about regression analysis and how you can use it to help you analyze and better understand data that you receive from surveys or observations. Learn what is involved in regression analysis and what to look out for.
3. Simple Linear Regression: Definition, Formula & Examples
Simple linear regression is a great way to make observations and interpret data. In this lesson, you will learn to find the regression line of a set of data using a ruler and a graphing calculator.
4. Unit Conversion and Dimensional Analysis
How is solving a chemistry problem like playing dominoes? Watch this lesson to find out how you can use your domino skills to solve almost any chemistry problem.
5. Measurements & Uncertainty in Science
In this lesson, you will discover the importance of precision and accuracy in science while learning to make measurements. Also, you will understand how to perform calculations with measurements that conserve precision and limit uncertainty.
6. How Scientists Use Computers & Technology
Whether you realize it or not, science and technology are very closely related. In this lesson, we will look at this close relationship and learn how scientists use computers and technology to help us learn about the universe.
7. Similarities Among Systems in Mathematics, Science & Technology
How do the concepts of balance and equilibrium extend throughout science and mathematics? How does solving algebraic equations parallel chemical equilibrium within a solution? See how crucial balance is in our universe as well as how mathematics is used to describe these constant equilibriums.
