1 – 10 of 10 Classroom Resources

Physical Properties, History, Measurements, Temperature, SI Units, Accuracy  High School, Middle School, Elementary 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  High School, Middle 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 SelfAssembly
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.

Combustion, Calorimetry, Heat, Specific Heat, Temperature, Heat of Combustion, Scientific Method, Enthalpy, Bond Energy, Accuracy, Graphing, Experimental Design, Error Analysis  High School
Activity: Evaluating Fuels
In this activity, students measure the heats of combustion of four fuels and compare them as potential replacements for gasoline.

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  Middle School, High 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  Middle School, High 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.
