This week we will practice manipulating the density formula to calculate density, mass and volume. We will also review our measurement conversions to prepare for our summative test.
We will complete our Challenging Density problems the first part of class. I was so proud of my IPC students, they did so well last Friday on these.

This week we will learn and practice converting units of measurement within the metric system and from the metric system to/from the English Standard system. This will help us all year as we do labs and assignments. Also, this will prepare them for future Chemistry and Physics classes.

Hi! It’s another exciting school year. Here are some supplies you’ll need for IPC:
Composition notebook (100 pages, to be used for IPC only)
Red pen/pencil (or another brighter color!)
Chromebook (charged each night)
Folder/binder to keep handouts and graded papers in (can share this with another class)
Optional: Calculator (we have a class set of 24, but if you prefer your own)
I know this isn’t possible for every family, but if you could get the following to donate to the class we’d appreciate it!
- A roll of paper towels OR a box of tissues (pick one)
- One package of glue sticks
