Learning Objective:

Each pure substance has characteristic physical properties like density (for any bulk quantity under given conditions) that can be used to identify it.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Application p.62” (Left Side) and “Bill Nye Buoyancy p.63” (Right Side); Head page 62 properly with “Density & Buoyancy-Applying to Main Idea-2/17/16″ and page 63 properly with “Bill Nye Buoyancy-Educational Video-2/17/16.”
  2. Notebook Organization– Set up homework questions on page 62.
  3. Practice– Review “Take It Further” Question 8 and tape it onto page 59 of your notebook.
