  • density

    Students are investigating the concept of density further from what was learned in earlier grades using hands-on experiences and practice problem sets. This concept is important to the understanding of our up-coming unit on geology. Along with "heat transfer', density changes in our Earth's interior is the driving force behind the study of plate tectonics. It is important that students make up lab activities if absent and practice HW problems so that they are able to fully grasp this concept and be successful as we move forward into the next…
