Sci8 - Matter: Topic 6&7: buoyancy and fluid pressure

Today we are:  learning about buoyancy and fluid pressure
I will: learn how buoyancy is related to density or average density and how fluids can exert a pressure
I can: define buoyancy and fluid pressure
I can: change the average density of an object
I can: use fluid pressure to keep my boat dry.







1.  Let's start with some origami.  Go to this site and make a small boat out of a 1/4 sheet of paper.

2.  Now we are off to the lab to do some experimenting!




Sci8 - Matter: Topic 4&5 Questions

Today we are:  Reviewing our understanding of Density and Viscosity
I will: answer some questions on Density and Viscosity
I can: define density and viscosity
I can: differentiate between very dense and not dense matter
I can: differentiate between very viscous and not very viscous matter
I can: calculate density, mass and volume using the formula.






1.  Let's see what we understand about density and viscosity.  Answer the following questionnaire.

2.  We will get together in our pods and make sure our work is all caught up.
