Day 14 – Comparing Volumes

We finished up or comparison of cm3 and ml today using these awesome geoshapes. While the students’ geometry skills were challenged by the octangular prism and square pyramid, we generally found out that our slope showed us that there is one cubic centimeter for every one milliliter. This then helps us link their knowledge of calculating volume in math to the units we use in chemistry. Next we’ll be using displacement to help use with density.
