What are we doing this week?

MONDAY: Discussing mass, volume and density.

To prepare for our density lab we are doing to discuss mass, volume, and density. We will talk about how to use a triple beam balance and how to find the volume of an irregularly shaped object.

Tuesday: Density Lab

We will find the density of 5 objects (2 regularly shaped and 3 irregularly shaped). The students will work in groups to first find the object's mass and volume. We will be finding the density of a cube of aluminum, a cube of copper, a key, a marble and a rock.
