Tuesday, 4/3/18- A Day

Question:

What is the density of water? Do different amounts of matter (like water) have the same density?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Density of Water p.61” (Right Side). Head page 61 properly with “Density of Water-4/3/18.”
  2. Driving Question Summary Table– Complete the Summary Table on pages 52-53 for the Effect of Volume Investigation on ISN pgs. 58-59.
  3. Demonstration– Set up ISN p. 61. There are two identical containers. One is half filled with water and one is filled with only 1 cup. By lifting the containers, which bucket has the most mass of water? Which do you think has water with the most density? Answer questions on ISN p. 61 (Think-Pair-Share).

Monday, 3/12/18- B Day

Question:

What is density? How is density measured? How is density important to matter?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Density Introduction p.55” (Right Side). Head page 55 properly with “Density Introduction-3/12/18.”
  2. Demonstration- Metal Cubes- What is density? How is density measured? Do cubes of the same size and shape have the same mass? Observe the masses of the copper and aluminum cubes. Discuss possible explanations for why one cube has a greater mass than the other even though they are both the same size. Demonstrate how to measure volume, mass, and density. Add key words mass, volume, and density to Index.
