Question:

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

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Effect of Volume- p.58” (Left Side). Head page 58 properly with “Effect of Volume-3/29/18.” Open your science notebook to page 59. Get out your lab activity handout.
  2. Science FridayForecasting Avalanches
  3. Investigation– What is the relationship between volume and density for objects of equal mass?  Complete calculating the densities and identifying the samples using the densities. Answer question 5. Tape the Activity handout as flip page to ISN p.59. Review data as a class. On ISN p.58, model relative size & arrangement of atoms/molecules in plastic & metal cylinders and write a Claim-Evidence-Reasoning (CER) regarding how the volume of cylinders of the same mass affects density.

Question:

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

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– 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 2 cm long. The mass of the cube is 16g.
  2. Investigation– What is the relationship between mass and density for objects of equal volume? Check data table and complete graph.
  3. 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.
