Today I just want to share a quick resource I put together earlier in the year for my chemistry students. When I took chemistry in high school, my teacher made us memorize the metric prefixes and what power of ten they stood for. This made life much easier while doing dimensional analysis problem after dimensional analysis problem.

I do give my students a metric prefix chart to keep in their notebooks, but I don't want my students to have to reference it every single time we try to convert kilograms to milligrams. So, I decided to type up a set of flashcards to help my students memorize the prefixes.

Interested in the file? I have uploaded it here if you want to download a copy.

By following the same link above, you can also find a copy of the metric prefix quiz I gave my students.
