 Measurement This two-part activity provides an introduction to the basics of measurement (linear, mass, volume, density) and discusses the role of inferential statistics in comparing any two measurements. The concept of random variations in measurements is introduced, which leads to a discussion of binomial distributions and probability in comparing measurements and results. Students will use online... https://esa21.kennesaw.edu/activities/measure/measure.pdf
 Buoyancy Georgia State University presents an explanation and illustration of buoyancy including Pascal's and Archimede's principles. The site contains helpful diagrams to better explain the concepts addressed. Overall, the site is very useful and provides good examples for use in the classroom. http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/pbuoy.html
 The Golden Crown This site from Drexel University, offers an explanation of how density and water displacement aimed to solve the mystery of the Golden Crown. https://www.cs.drexel.edu/~crorres/Archimedes/Crown/CrownInt...
 PhET: Estimation Game This simulation provides practice on estimation of relative sizes. The user must estimate the relative lengths, areas, or volumes of objects. This activity builds student abilities to understand ratios and the scaling of sizes in different dimensions. It also includes a strategy section that teaches students how to visualize relative areas and volumes. http://phet.colorado.edu/sims/estimation/estimation_en.html
 What's A Matter? This activity from the Florida Advanced Technological Education (FL-ATE) Center will help students develop their understanding of the design and manufacturing process. The lesson asks the class to examine the properties of matter and the importance of the appropriate selection of a unit system in the design and manufacturing processes. Concepts of mass, volume, density and weight are integrated... http://flate.pbworks.com/w/page/27834618/What's_A_Matter
