Physical science: density laboratory

Use a scale and a graduated cylinder to measure the masses and volumes of different objects. Record the data in a table. Place objects in a beaker of liquid and observe if they sink or float. Use the mass and volume data to calculate each object’s density. Increase the density of the liquid in the beaker and find out if ...

Filling glasses: match: assessment

Test your understanding of the relationship between the shape of a glass and the level of liquid in the glass as it fills. Show your understanding of this relationship by matching glass shapes to line graphs that represent the filling rates. For example, match a parallel-sided tall glass to a straight line graph. View and ...

Filling glasses: create the right graph

Look closely at some line graphs. Examine the relationship between the shape of a glass and the time taken to fill it with juice. Notice that the fluid level rises more quickly in a narrow glass than in a wide glass. Choose both sections of a line graph representing the filling rate for a composite-shaped glass. This learning ...

Cubirocks go!

Help three cuboid characters estimate and compare the volumes of cube-shaped rocks made by a special volcano in 'Cubiland'. Each character uses a different measuring unit: small, medium-sized or large. Notice that if 8 medium cubes and 27 small cubes fill a large cube that this ratio can be applied to all 'cubirocks'. Use ...
