Fill the Vase

Published on 12/10/2015

#### Activity Overview

Students interpret graphs of empirical data with respect to rate of change of the height of water in vases of different shapes that are being filled at a constant rate. Students are provided with a range of graphs and vases. For each graph they must reshape the vase in order to match the volume – height graph. For each vase they must produce a volume – height graph. Practical ideas including data collection and videos are provided in the teacher notes.

#### Objectives

Interpretation of graphs of empirical data with respect to rate of change, specifically, the height of water in containers of different shapes that are being filled at a constant rate

#### Vocabulary
