Using Mass to Determine Quantity

Unit 5: Unit 6-Dimensional Analysis and The Mole
Lesson 4 of 9

Objective: TSWBAT calculate the quantity of objects in a sample based on the mass of the sample.

Big Idea: Students measure a the mass of a small sample of paperclips and use factor labeling to estimate the mass and number of large quantities of paperclips to prepare them for the conversions they will use in stoichiometry.
