 What's the Matter: An Introduction to the Physical Properties of Matter 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... http://matse1.matse.illinois.edu/concrete/f.html
 How Dense Is It? An Introduction to Concrete Density and Aggregates The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this lesson plan for students learning about concrete. The purpose of the activity is to "determine the density of a concrete sample and to learn the effect of various types of aggregates on concrete's density." The experiment requires concrete samples which should be prepared ahead of time. Recipes for the concrete samples... http://matse1.matse.illinois.edu/concrete/g.html
 Hot and Cold pHun Experiment: Cement Hydration and pH Evolution During Curing The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this lesson plan for students learning about concrete. The class will "calculate the amount of water that reacts during hydration when cement becomes concrete under differing curing temperatures and observe the pH change that occurs in the curing process." The procedure is designed to be spread across three class days.... http://matse1.matse.illinois.edu/concrete/h.html
 The Fleet Afloat: Concrete Experiment The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this lesson plan for students learning about concrete. The class will design a concrete barge and determine what the barge's maximum cargo will be. The lesson will give classes the chance to learn to work with the component materials of concrete and test a concrete structure's physical properties. The experiment should... http://matse1.matse.illinois.edu/concrete/i.html
 The Basic Mix: A General Teacher's Guide for Concrete Preparation The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this guide for teachers on preparing concrete. Some very useful tips are included along with a graphic and a link to a video clip on making concrete. http://matse1.matse.illinois.edu/concrete/bm.html
