This lab goes with the Unit 1-Measurements in Chemistry.
In this lab students will be using rulers, meter sticks, and digital balances to measure classroom objects. Once students collect their data, they will do calculations to convert to new units. They will then compare their results to see if conversion factors actually represent equivalents between units.
This lab gives students practice with taking and recording data, doing conversion calculations between metric units and between metric and standard units, and has them get used to using data to support their conclusions.
