Laboratory Equipment

After finishing up the safety test, students matched drawings of lab equipment with the proper names. We went over what this equipment looks like in real life (not a drawing) and discussed uses of the equipment.

We finished class with a discussion of accuracy and precision. Several volunteers helped by throwing squishy whales at a bulls-eye. With a bulls-eye, accuracy is hitting the target in the center. Precision is how close together the points are, whether they are accurate or not.
