Chromebooks add "Volume"
Chromebooks allowed students to use the PhET Interactive Simulations (link: https://phet.colorado.edu/sims/density-and-buoyancy/density_en.html).I As a class, each student was involved in manipulating volume/mass/materials to understand and calculate density. With a background knowledge of displacement from the previous lab (used for calculating volume), students could test the different objects in the simulation to further understand density. The lesson was a perfect example of using technology to gain deeper understanding of the real world.
