Product Description
In this lab, students will be tasked with determining the volume of an irregularly shaped object (one which does not have a formula for volume).

Materials needed:

-Ruler
-Calculator
-Graduated Cylinder
-Density cube (or similar cube/rectangular object)
-Clay

The lab has them walk through the method of determining the volume of an irregular object, then walks them through the same steps, using a REGULAR object (a cube), to prove to them that the method is sound.

The lab is aimed mostly at middle school, or high school physical science, but could also be used in physics or chemistry, as a basic skills refresher.
