1 August 16 Thank you for not chewing gum Today’s Agenda: Objective: Bell workMass labWork on booksMaterials: Pencil, ruler, science notebook, science folder, Metric lab Packet, Metric systems challenge packet.Objective:Today we will practice estimating and measuring mass.Daily Question:Describe how you could get the mass of (weight) a liquid.
2 Kilogram Prototype Image - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilogram Metric UnitskggcgmgMass refers to the amount of matter in an object.Newton = one kilogram - The unit of measurement for weight is that of force.For example, an object with a mass of one kilogram has a weight of about 9.8 newtons on the surface of the Earth, and about one-sixth as much on the Moon.The base unit of mass in the metric system is the gramKilogram is represented by kg.Kilogram PrototypeMetric Units1 Kilogram (kg) = 1000 Grams (g)1 Gram (g) = 1000 Milligrams (mg)Which is larger?A. 1 kilogram or 1500 gramsB milligrams or 1 gramC. 12 milligrams or 12 kilogramsD. 4 kilograms or 4500 gramsKilogram Prototype Image -
3 English vs. Metric Units 1 pound = gramsWhich is larger?1. 1 Pound or 100 Grams2. 1 Kilogram or 1 Pound3. 1 Ounce or 1000 Milligrams100 kilogram = 220 pounds1 ounce of gold = 28,349.5 milligrams
4 _______ + ______ + _______ = ________ g Measuring MassWe will be using triple-beam balances to find the mass of various objects.The objects are placed on the scale and then you move the weights on the beams until you get the lines on the right-side of the scale to match up.Once you have balanced the scale, you add up the amounts on each beam to find the total mass.What would be the mass of the object measured in the picture?_______ + ______ + _______ = ________ gTop Image: Bottom Image:
5 Measuring Mass – Triple-Beam Balance 1st – Place the film canister on the scale.2nd – Slide the large weight to the right until the arm drops below the line. Move the rider back one groove. Make sure it “locks” into place.3rd – Repeat this process with the top weight. When the arm moves below the line, back it up one groove.4th – Slide the small weight on the front beam until the lines match up.5th – Add the amounts on each beam to find the total mass to the nearest tenth of a gram.Click here to try an online activity.
7 Students will be able to measure using the metric system SCORE 4.0IN ADDITION TO SCORE 3.0 YOU ARE ABLE TO GO ABOVE AND BEYOND BY APPLYING WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT THE METRIC SYSTEM. YOU CAN TEACH ANOTHER STUDENT ABOUT THE METRIC SYSTEM.SCORE 3.0YOU UNDERSTAND HOW TO MEASURE USING THE METRIC SYSTEM.SCORE 2.0WITH NO HELP YOU HAVE A PARTIAL UNDERSTANDING OF HOW TO MEASURE USING THE METRIC SYSTEM.SCORE 1.0WITH HELP YOU MAY HAVE A PARTIAL UNDERSTANDING OF HOW TO MEASURE USING THE METRIC SYSTEM.SCORE 0.0EVEN WITH HELP YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO MEASURE USING THE METRIC SYSTEM.
