This lesson is part of the following series:

Chemistry Fundamentals: Full Course (43 lessons, $109.89)
Chemistry Fundamentals: Systems of Measurement (3 lessons, $9.90)

Factor label or dimensional analysis, as it may be called, is introduced as a problem solving method that will be used frequently. Significant figures and their use, as well as the rules for rounding off help to prepare students for the problem solving that frequents the course.

In addition to the full video lesson, you will also get access to a lesson specific note guide that can be viewed and downloaded once this lesson is purchased. This lesson is part of a full course, Fundamentals of Chemistry that is available through the series listed above or in DVD format from the Chemistry Professor’s website at The full course addresses teaches those topics commonly found in high school chemistry classes and includes several sections often covered in more extensive courses. The essential topics addressed include: measurements, calculations, matter, energy, elements, compounds, nomenclature, equations, types of reactions, the mole, stoichiometry, atomic theory, the periodic table, bonding theory, gases, liquids, solids, solutions, acids, bases, equilibrium, pH and Buffers, radioactivity, and oxidation-reduction. These topics are all addressed at the beginning level of chemistry with a view to preparing students who may need to take college chemistry at a later date. The program is designed for high school students currently enrolled in chemistry who may need further assistance with their high school chemistry course. It is also ideal for home schooled students or as an aid for teachers who may wish to refresh or alter their approach to the subject.
