Product Description
Want to find a more engaging way to teach density without using pages and pages of practice problem? This inquiry based investigation requires students to practice accurate measurement, use it to calculate density, and then compare the densities to infer whether the pennies are "pure" copper or not - just like Archimedes!

Investigation includes a one page introduction of how Archimedes discovered displacement, as well as calculating density. Additionally, there is a a graphic organizer for students to use to guide their data analysis!
