SCED 544 Properties of Matter

An examination of how science ideas are constructed in informal and formal social settings. The course investigates some basic properties of matter. The course will also develop the concepts of mass, volume, and density and use these in the context of how students explain physical phenomena. The inquiry will be extended to the study of solutions while providing a context for developing the important scientific skills of proportional reasoning, reasoning by analogy, and control of variables.
