This week we will use the computer lab to explore the concepts and practice of calculating density.
We’ll use this worksheet and follow the instructions through this website.
We also have a homework worksheet we worked on in class. I’ll work to get an electronic version.
REMINDER: a quiz on METRIC CONVERSION next class.
Do you remember why this happens?
The week before Thanksgiving break we were all about volume.
We spent the first part of class learning how to convert metric units using the Metric Mania worksheeet.
This is a link to a video showing how to use the worksheet and the metric ladder.

Then we went off to the Lab to calculate volumes of various objects using different methods. Here is the Lab.
Here’s the link to our last set of slides SI and Metric Measurement
It’s an older power point, so I suggest trying to download the presentation, then going through the slides yourself.
Alternatively, Here is a different set of slides that I made up reviewing the metric system:
A reminder about our assessment on Monday (Tue b-day)
I’ve tagged the relevant posts with “NoS” so that they are easy to find.
- What IS and what IS NOT Science
- The Sci Method
- Theory Law Hypothesis and Fact and Belief
- And the Branches of Sci, especially those available at WHS
Here’s a good video to review Theory, Hyp, and Fact:
