Metrics & Lab Materials (Properties of matter)
Learning             Differentiate between weight & mass, recognizing that weight is the amount of gravitational pull on an object.
Standard(s)          Differentiate between volume and mass.
Properties           Recognize that the measurement of volume & mass requires the understanding of the sensitivity of measurement tools and knowledge of appropriate
significant digits. (e.g. rulers, graduated cylinders, balances)
of Matter           Scientific Method (Inquiry)
and                       Formulate a testable hypothesis.
 Design & conduct an experiment specifying variables to be changed, controlled, and measured.
Inquiry                   Select appropriate tools & technology & make quantitative observations.
(e.g., calculators, computers, thermometers, meter sticks, balances, graduated cylinders, and microscopes)
 Present & explain data and findings using multiple representations, including tables, graphs, mathematical and physical models, and demonstrations.
 Draw conclusions based on data or evidence.
 Communicate procedures & results using appropriate science & technology terminology.
 Offer explanations of procedures, & critique and revise them.
Open Response writing (Inquiry)
-Identify and practice BMS Open Response procedure
-Offer explanations of procedures & critique and revise them.
-Communicate procedures & results using appropriate science and technology terminology.
