TE Activity: Determining Densities
Students determine how to determine the density of an object or material that has a simple geometric shape. They apply the method for determining density to a more complex geometric shape. They complete an experiment with items that sink or float in water, develop a scatter plot, and determine densities using the graph.

Floaters and Sinkers
Middle and high schoolers are introduced to the important concept of density. They devise methods to determine the densities of solid objects, including the method of water displacement to determine volumes of irregularly-shaped objects. By comparing densities of various solids to the density of water, students discover that ordinarily, objects with densities greater than water will sink, while those with densities less than water will float.
