This activity sheet posts a chart of the common radiation sources in our everyday lives. Chemistry scholars use it to analyze their own radiation exposure using rem (Roentgen equivalent for man) units. This simple assignment increases learner awareness of ionizing radiation. Consider adding to this worksheet an assignment to research nuclear power plants or weapons test fallout and the exposure increase due to living in the vicinity.
