    In this simulation, students will participate in a 10 question quiz. The quiz questions are each made of two parts, with the first part requiring the student to analyze an image of a graduated cylinder in order to report an accurate measurement. Students must use the correct number of digits based on the markings presented on the cylinder when reporting the measurement. In the second portion of the question the students will determine the uncertainty value of the graduated cylinder, again by analyzing its markings. The simulation is made up of several different sizes of graduated cylinders, each containing unique markings, so students will be challenged to analyze each individually.

Student will discuss that all material in the Universe is composed of elements and that the atom is the smallest particle that still has the physical and chemical properties of any given element. Students will engage in an activity to determine the percent composition of common elements in the universe, and based on their results they will hypothesize the identity of each element based on its relative abundance.

  • Density, Measurements | High School

    Lab: Can it Float?

    In this lab, students will investigate the relationships between mass, volume, density and buoyancy in common objects. Students will be tasked with determining the volume of a variety of objects as well as interpreting the meaning of their buoyancy in water.

    Lesson Plan: Chemical Measurement Unit Plan

    The AACT High School Classroom Resource library has everything you need to put together a unit plan for your classroom: lessons, activities, labs, projects, videos, simulations, and animations. We constructed a unit plan for introducing concepts student need to collect and use chemical measurements: Percent Composition, Metric Units, Accuracy and Precision, Percent Error, Density, Scientific Notation, Significant Figures, and Unit Conversion. This unit is designed to be used at beginning of the school year and modified based on student math abilities.

  • Dimensional Analysis, SI Units | High School

    Lesson Plan: Dimensional Analysis and Unit Conversion

    In this lesson, students will learn how to use dimensional analysis for unit conversion problems. They will then practice the skill on several chemistry-based conversion problems.

  • 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.

  • Stoichiometry, Limiting Reactant, Dimensional Analysis | High School

    Lesson Plan: Map to Solving Limiting Reactant Problems

    In this lesson, students will learn how to follow a step-by-step problem solving method for limiting reactant stoichiometry problems. This method can be particularly beneficial for students who struggle with completing these calculations.

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

    Video: The Temperature Guys Video

    This video tells the story of how temperature as we currently know it evolved. The first thermometers invented in the early 1600s are very different than ones we use today!

  • Stoichiometry, Conservation of Mass, Limiting Reactant, Mole Concept | High School

    Animation: Limiting Reactant Animation

    In this animation, students will visualize on the particulate level what happens in a limiting reactant problem. A number of limiting reactant scenarios are animated, including a simple example of how to build a bike to introduce the concept of limiting reactant. Conservation of mass is also demonstrated by calculating masses from the mole quantities of the reactants and products. **This video has no audio**
