Students will investigate in a laboratory setting by quantifying measured values and known values to answer a question using dimensional analysis. The worksheet also comes with "Hint Strips" that you cut out and hand to the table as they proceed through the investigation should they get stuck and can continue with their investigate. There is a total of 6 worksheets, with 2 "hint strips" per sheet. Example: Your Question:
How old is the oldest person in the group in seconds?
Now devise and carry out a procedure to collect data on each member of the group. This must be done in the classroom. Record data and show all calculations.
You must deliver a product by the end of the class period. You may use as many resources as you wish to figure out the answer. Whatever you use, you must clean up before the end of the period. Points will not be given for the correct answer but rather the investigative process that you use to figure out the answer.
