1 – 10 of 10 Classroom Resources

• Accuracy, Measurements, Significant Figures, Accuracy, Error Analysis, Error Analysis | Middle School, High School

### Lab: Accuracy, Precision, and Error in Measurements

In this lab, students make measurements of length and width using four measuring tools. They will measure the same object using measuring sticks of different precision. They will observe that the exactness of a measurement is limited by the precision of the measuring instrument.

• Physical Properties, History, Measurements, Temperature, SI Units, Accuracy | Elementary School, Middle School, High School

### Activity: Temperature Guys Video Questions

In this activity, students will watch a video and answer questions about how both the thermometer and the concept of temperature evolved over time

• Density, Accuracy, Measurements, Significant Figures, Accuracy, Error Analysis, Error Analysis | Middle School, High School

### Lab: Significant Figures and Lab Data

In this lesson, students will use laboratory equipment of different precision to collect data for several different metals, and then use the data to calculate the density of each. They will then compare their calculated densities to accepted values and determine the combination of equipment that leads to the most accurate calculation of density.

• Density, Introduction, Interdisciplinary, Accuracy, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Scientific Notation, Significant Figures, Accuracy, Error Analysis, Error Analysis | High School

### Lab: Math and Measurement

In this lab, students will practice introductory math skills that will be used in chemistry all year. This includes metric conversion, significant figures, scientific notation, dimensional analysis, density, percent error, accuracy and precision, as well as using lab equipment.

• Interdisciplinary, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Significant Figures, Accuracy, Error Analysis | High School

### Lab: Nanoscale and Self-Assembly

In this lab, students determine both the diameter of one single BB and the length of an oleic acid molecule.

• Accuracy, Measurements, Accuracy, Error Analysis, Error Analysis | High School

### Lab: Glassware Accuracy

In this lab, students use different types of laboratory glassware to measure 50 mL of water and determine the accuracy of each piece of glassware.

• Temperature, Gas Laws, Kinetic Molecular Theory, Ideal Gas, Volume, Accuracy, Graphing, Error Analysis | High School

### Lab: Finding Absolute Zero

In this lab, students will experimentally determine the value for absolute zero in degrees Celsius.

• Physical Properties, Concentration, Colligative Properties, Boiling Point, Accuracy, Graphing, Molality, Boiling Point Elevation, Error Analysis | High School

### Lab: Changing Water's Boiling Point

Download this lab in which students will explore colligative properties in a quantitative approach.

• Density, Review, Accuracy, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Accuracy, Experimental Design, Error Analysis | High School, Middle School

### Lab: Bowling Ball—Will it Sink or Float in Water?

In this lab, students will find the density of a bowling ball to determine whether it will sink or float in water.

• Density, Physical Properties, Identifying an Unknown, Accuracy, Error Analysis | High School, Middle School

### Lab: Density Lab

In this lab, students determine the density of several liquids and solids. They then identify an unknown metal by determining its density. They then calculate the percent error within the class for a specific sample.
