Wednesday, 3/24/18- A Day- Early Dismissal (Weather)

Question:

What is the relationship between mass and density for objects of equal volume?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and open to pages 56-57. Take out your data table and your graph paper. Work out the following density word problem on the colored paper strip: “Calculate the density of a cube using the following information: Each side is 3 cm long. The mass of the cube is 54 g.
  2. Model & Claim Evidence Reasoning (CER)– On ISN p. 56, draw a model of the relative size and arrangement of atoms/molecules in metal, plastic, & wooden cubes based on your observations of the mass & density of the cubes. Also on ISN p.56, make a claim about the relationship between mass and density for objects of equal volume. Support your claim with evidence and reasoning. Tape data table as flip page to p.57 and tape graph paper as flip page to p.56.
