Presentation on theme: "Which of the following would you measure using a balance?"— Presentation transcript:
1 Which of the following would you measure using a balance? mass
2 Using one or more of your senses to gather information is called observing.
3 If you conduct an experiment and draw conclusions that are based on your beliefs rather than the facts, you are usingsubjective reasoning.
4 Mass and weight are different because weight measures the force of gravity on an object and mass is the amount of stuff in an object.
5 qualitative observations. Observations that deal with descriptions that cannot be expressed in numbers are calledqualitative observations.
6 The metric system of measurement is based on the number 10
7 Jonathan notices that every time he uses a certain bird food in his bird feeder, blue jays land on the feeder. He concludes that blue jays prefer this food more than other birds do. What type of reasoning is Jonathan using?inductive reasoning

9 Which of the following would you measure using a graduated cylinder? VolumeMassLengthtemperature
10 For which of the following would the kilometer be the most appropriate unit of measure? The distance from Pensacola to Destin.Length of a lady bugVery tall giraffeWing span of a seagull
11 For which of the following would the millimeter be the most appropriate unit of measure? Length of a ladybugDistance from Talahassee to Ft. WaltonThe height of a tall personThe wingspan of a herring
12 The basic unit of length in the metric system is the meter
13 How many meters are there in a kilometer? 1,000
14 The amount of space an object takes up is its volume
15 To calculate the density of an object, you would Divide its mass by its volume
