Radioactive Decay and Half-lives

Unit 9: Unit 10: Nuclear Chemistry and Final Exam Review
Lesson 3 of 8

Objective: Students will be able to model how unstable nuclei decay based on half-lives through taking notes, performing practice questions, and doing a Marie Curie Activity.

Big Idea: Radioactive nuclei decay in different amounts of time based on their half-lives.
