Learn to measure density and solve the mystery of the gold crown like Archimedes.
In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks about what properties are and how we can measure them to tell us more about an object.
In this lesson, students calculate volumes of rectangular prisms and use that information to design an appealing and well-balanced tray.
In this lesson, students use the volume and surface area of cylinders to compare disposable water bottles and consider environmentally-friendly ways to stay hydrated.
In this lesson, students will use surface area and volume to come up with a way to quantify the cheesiness of a snack.
In this lesson, students model the bodies of different sharks using cylinders, and explore how the volume of a cylinder changes when its dimensions change.
This task is designed to introduce students to the ideas of calculus – in particular, finding the volume of a complex shape (a lemon).
Estimating might sound like an activity from young children, and although it is fantastic for them to estimate how many pieces of candy are in a jar or how many crackers come in a box, older students can also benefit from these and take them to the next level.
