### FOCUS STANDARD:

FOCUS STANDARD S5P1. Students will verify that an object is the sum of its parts. a. Demonstrate that the mass of an object is equal to the sum of its parts by manipulating and measuring different objects made of various parts. b. Investigate how common items have parts that are too small to be seen without magnification

### How is matter measured?:

How is matter measured? Matter is measured using the metric system .

### What is mass?:

What is mass? Mass is how much matter is in an object. Something that feels heavier has MORE mass. Something that feels lighter has LESS mass.

### How is mass measured?:

How is mass measured? Mass is measured using a balance scale . Mass is measured in grams and kilograms .

### What is volume?:

What is volume? Volume is the amount of SPACE that matter takes up.

### How is volume measured?:

How is volume measured? It depends on the object you’re measuring.

### How is LIQUID volume measured?:

How is LIQUID volume measured? Liquid volume is measured using a beaker or graduated cylinder. Liquid volume is measured using liters and milliliters . g raduated cylinder beakers

### To find the volume of a RETANGULAR SOLID ….:

To find the volume of a RETANGULAR SOLID …. To find the volume of a rectangular solid , you would multiply length times width times height using the formula V=L.W.H

### So, how would you measure is volume of something that not a liquid or a cube?:

So, how would you measure is volume of something that not a liquid or a cube? To measure the volume of an irregular shape , y ou could place the object in water and compare how much the water rises.

### What is weight? :

What is weight? Weight is the measure of the pull of gravity.

### So, would you weigh LESS or MORE on the moon.:

So, would you weigh LESS or MORE on the moon. You would weigh LESS on the moon because the pull of gravity is weaker Your MASS stays the SAME on Earth or on the moon, but your weight CHANGES.

### Is weight and mass the same?:

Is weight and mass the same? No, because mass is how much matter is in an object.

### How do you measure weight?:

How do you measure weight? A spring scale is used to measure weight. Weight is measured in ounces and pounds .

### What is density?:

What is density? Density is HOW MUCH MATTER is in a given space. Density is calculated by dividing the MASS by the VOLUME.
