Discovering Density - Looking for Patterns and Trends - Super Value Laboratory Kit
By: The Flinn Staff
Item #: AP7169
With the Discovering Density Super Value Science Laboratory Kit, don't give students the definition and equation for density; let them discover the concept for themselves! Students discover and analyze a trend to identify an unknown metal.
Don't just give your students the definition and equation for density—let them discover the concept for themselves! Using either “gold” or “silver” metal shot, students collect mass and volume data, plot the data on a graph to identify the resulting pattern and trend, and then analyze the relationship. By comparing their results with known quantities, students identify their metal and determine the accuracy of their method. Don't be surprised at the number of students who yell out a modern version of “Eureka!” as they “nail” the density of their sample! Includes complete instructions with reproducible student handouts and valuable Teacher Notes.
Super Value Kit is complete for 15 student groups. All materials are reusable—a great value! Balances with 0.01-g precision are recommended.
