Students can work individually or in teams of up to 4 on this lab. By determining mass and volume (using 2 different methods: LXWXH and water displacement method) students determine and compare the densities of various fun-sized candy bars. This lab reinforces how to find mass, volume and density and helps explain their relationship to each other. It also teaches the formula for density and reviews independent and dependent variable. Additionally, this lab incorporates practice with analyzing data and graph-reading skills.
