Make it a lesson day. Give guided instruction for a data/calculation practice sheet then have students complete a few Q=mcT problems for a "lab ticket" and check their answers and then off to the lab!
Two Versions of Lab:
• Calculation section with no helpful hints
• Calculation section with embedded calculations
Example: Q water = (m water) x (Cwater) x (∆Twater)
Both Calculation sections written to lead students down a train of thought so students are more self-sufficient and less teacher dependent. No copper cylinder, then use a copper elbow or fitting.
