Most ELA, Math and Science teachers don't have more than 100
State Tests on their shoulders - and they enjoy anywhere from 60 to
90 minutes to teach their class. But I've been whipping the
State while teaching an average of 110 students per year - and
with only about 38 minutes for science class!
It's a matter of public record:
I've crushed the State by 17 to 32 points, and by an average
of 23 points over a 5-year stretch.
And I'm North Carolina's 2016 Top-Scoring Science Teacher.
I've done it with:
No Teaching Assistants,
No Remediation Class,
and No Test-Prep books or programs.
So what are my kids learning, doing and using?
Bossy Brocci worksheets.
1) Determine and Record the Average Density of Room Temperature water from 4 Volume samples:
2) Measure, Calculate and Record 5 physical properties in a Data Table:
Mass of Empty, Dry Graduated Cylinder (or other vessel)
Water Volume at Meniscus (depicted in Table)
Mass of Filled-to-mark Graduated Cylinder (or other vessel)
Mass of specified Volume of Water
DENSITY of specified volume of water
3) Fill-in a total of 20 cells in this first Data Table
4) Calculate & Record in a 2nd, mini Data Table:
Sum of four Density runs/results
Room-Temperature Water's Average Density
Room-Temperature Water's Average Density rounded to a WHOLE Number
5) Graph or Plot Water Mass (y) vs. Water Volume (x) from their 1st Data Table onto the provided and pre-scaled a Graph
6) Draw a Line of Best Fit (by eye).
7) Calculate and Record Unit Slope (simplified slope) of this Best Fit Line, rounded to a Whole Number
8) Answer 20 Fill-in-the-Blank and Multiple-choice questions based on their Calculations, Observations and Plots in the preceding Data Tables & Graph
9) Discover that Density is an Intensive Property: pouring more water increases volume and mass of water, but the density of water (at a particular temperature) is constant, invariant
10) Prove to themselves why we say the Density of water is approximately 1 g/mL
11) Be compelled to present their work in a neat & orderly format
12) Be trained to Calculate & Comprehend Density as a Constant, Intensive Property at a particular temperature methodically & systematically
