1. Demonstrate understanding of chemical and physical properties and apply these properties to an experiment.
2. Analyze and evaluate data achieved from running multiple trials of these experiments to improve procedures.
3. Describe density as a property of matter
4. Use deductive reasoning to explain how to make a golf ball sink or float in water

Today in Class:
1. You and your group sat together and started revising and double-checking your Golf Ball Density Lab.
2. Next, you improved your Procedure and your Materials List, and wrote your Hypothesis (if this was not already completed).
3. Mr. Fowler or I signed your group out, so you could begin your experiments. BIGGEST challenge for most groups– recalling how to set up and run the Control experiment! Remember, the Control Experiment is that experiment that does not have any changes added to it. It is the experiment that all the other trials are compared to.
4. You ran the Control Experiment, checked to see if the golf ball floated or sunk, and then ran subsequent trials to check if you could get that golf ball to sink with the variable experiment (Independent Variable experiment).
5. Clean up of your materials and your space.
Actively study!! This means to walk around the house and look at many different items, and classify them by their chemical and physical properties, and classify matter by its types of matter (purity of matter= compounds, elements & mixtures)
