Teacher Jamie Newcomb Comprehensive Science III 8 13 Physical Properties of Matter
Standard(s) Taught

SC.8.P.8.3 (Level 2)
Explore and describe the densities of various materials through
measurement of their masses and volumes.

SC.8.P.8.2 (Level 2)
Differentiate between weight and mass recognizing that weight is
the amount of gravitational pull on an object and is distinct from,
though proportional to, mass.

SC.8.P.8.4 (Level 2)
Classify and compare substances on the basis of characteristic
physical properties that can be demonstrated or measured; for
example, density, thermal or electrical conductivity, solubility,
magnetic properties, melting and boiling points, and know that
these properties are independent of the amount of the sample.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will:
• calculate the density, mass or volume of solids, liquids and gases using the
formula Density = mass ÷ volume
o measure the mass and volume of solids, liquids and gases
• sequence various substances in order of increasing or decreasing density
• differentiate between mass and weight
• classify substances based on their physical properties, including:
o thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, solubility, magnetism,
melting and boiling points, volume, and density
• investigate to explain how the physical properties of matter are independent of
the amount sampled, such as: density and conductivity
o NOS Focus – Design a controlled experiment
• determine the physical property being analyzed given data from a table
