In honor of Mole Day, I am posting an activity provided by a Chemistry teacher during an informal observation earlier this week. To introduce the value of one mole, students actively investigated the following with their peers:
Say you were given a "mole" of dollars when you were born (6.02 x 10^23). If you spent a BILLION dollars per SECOND for your entire life, how much of your money would be left after you died, living to be 80 years-old?
Props to Ms. Doss.
