Lesson Plan: Density Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to calculate the density of an object given its mass and volume and convert between different density units.


Students will be able to

  • recall that density =massvolume,
  • identify possible units that can be used for density and convert between them,
  • use the equation relating density, mass, and volume to find one of the quantities, in the correct units, given the other two,
  • use the dimensions of a 3D object to find its volume and hence solve problems using the density equation.


Students should already be familiar with

  • rearranging simple equations,
  • converting between metric units,
  • volumes of cubes, prisms, and spheres.
