Titre Density: How Does Density Relate to Mass &Volume and an Object's Interaction with Water?
Description I plan to use the sim after having done the hands-on Accuracy/Precision Lab. This is an inquiry-based activity that invites students to think about what they already know about density and relate their ideas in context of how an object interacts with water by designing their own experiments and collecting evidence to support their conclusions. There is one version with a lab component after using the sim and one version that is all sim. Learning Goals: Students will be able to use macroscopic evidence to: 1.Measure the volume of an object by observing the amount of fluid it displaces or can displace. 2.Provide evidence and reasoning for how objects of similar: a.mass can have differing volume b.volume can have differing mass. 3.Identify the unknown materials by calculating density using displacement of fluid techniques and reference tables provided in the simulation.
