Density of Irregular Shapes

Density of Irregular Shapes

A teaching resource provided by Ellis Broomhall.

Resource Description

This resource is a fully differentiated lesson aimed at teaching the new AQA GCSE Physics and Trilogy Physics specification, and links to the Particle model of matter.

This lesson has 5 learning objectives that are structured in the IDEAL format:

*Identify the order of steps to follow to find the volume of an irregular object.

*Describe how we can find the density of a range of irregular object.

*Explain, using practical results, the density of a range of different materials.

*Apply your understanding of density and the particle model to explain why some materials have a higher density than others.

*Link your knowledge of the mass numbers of the periodic table to find the density of different elements when given the density of gold.

This lesson is designed with a challenge objective and challenge questions throughout to stretch your most able students, whilst supporting your LA students.

Review the lesson before teaching to see how the animations and objectives will work in your lesson.
