Title: What's the Matter: An Introduction to the Physical Properties of Matter
Url: http://matse1.matse.illinois.edu/concrete/f.html
Publisher: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering
Description: The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this activity as an introduction to the physical properties of matter. The objective of this laboratory is to identify different classes of matter based on their physical properties, specifically the ingredients of concrete. The goal is to gain a deeper understanding of the physical properties of concrete. The different materials used in concrete will be examined for magnetic properties, color odor, relative particle size and solubility. The lesson should require about 45-50 minutes of class time to complete.
