Making Measurements

My students need these large graduated cylinders for studying gases.

My Students

Learning is more effective when it is active not passive. My students need to have practice collecting data and comparing their results to known values.

My school has a small town feel even though it is in a large urban school district.

My students are community minded and love their school and its traditions. My students would rather be doing a lab activity than listening to a lecture or practicing problem sets.

My Project

These graduated cylinders will be used multiple times throughout the year. At the beginning of the year, students will learn how to correctly measure volume using the graduated cylinder. Then later on in the year the students will use these graduated cylinders to calculate the molar mass of a gas and the molar gas constant.

Having the right equipment to do a lab ensures that the students will experience the expected result.

Lab activities are the students favorite and the ones they remember. Doing lots of lab activities means that students remember science with a smile and not a grimace.
