Overview: Compare the density of blocks that vary in mass. Volume held constant.

Learning Targets

Students can:

• Use a digital simulation to collect science data
• Use displacement to determine the volume of an object.
• Calculate density.
• Explain the relationship between mass and density.
• Model the relationship between mass and density with a diagram.
• Model the relationship between mass and density with a mathematical formula.
• Explain why all blocks tested in the simulation represent different materials.

### Standards

Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
Plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances at the bulk scale to infer the strength of electrical forces between particles.
Develop models to illustrate the changes in the composition of the nucleus of the atom and the energy released during the processes of fission, fusion, and radioactive decay.
Communicate scientific and technical information about why the molecular-level structure is important in the functioning of designed materials.
