Description

The Archimedes Principle lab uses a laboratory balance, a metal sample, and graduated cylinders containing water and alcohol to investigate Archimedes’ Principle and to use Archimedes’ Principle to determine the mass densities of a solid and a liquid. It is part of High School Virtual Physics Lab, a set of 24 iPad apps for use in the classroom. To see how they work, try the FREE HSVPL Newton’s 2nd Law lab. In addition to a 3D simulation that produces realistic data, each lab includes introductory videos, background theory, experimental procedure, analysis and reporting tools, pre- and post-lab quizzes, and teacher support materials. These labs can serve as replacements for hands-on labs, especially when equipment is not available, or as supplements to hands-on labs. They are also a suitable option for students in distance learning situations. Formative and summative evaluations showed no significant difference in learning between students using the virtual labs and those using hands-on labs. Preliminary results suggest increased learning by students using the virtual labs as supplements to hands-on. HSVPL was developed by Polyhedron Learning Media, Inc. and is distributed in conjunction with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Funding for this project was provided under contract number ED-IES-11-C-0029 by the Institute of Education Sciences in the U.S. Department of Education through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program.
