Day 2-
Discuss Measuring Matter (Brainpop)
A. Measuring Matter
1. Mass
2. Volume
a. Regular object
(V = L x W x H)
b. Irregular object (displacement)
B. Calculate Density
1. Density = Mass/Volume
2. Mass = Density x Volume
3. Volume = Mass/Density
4. Observational Investigation of Density
5. Experimental Design related to Density (test/independent and outcome/dependent)
