The density of objects is calculated using mass and volume. In this short session, students will take a look at how to use volume equations for different three-dimensional shapes as well as rearrange and substitute values into the density equation. Students will also get the chance to apply what they have learned to exam questions. This class is great for students in Years 9 - 11 who want to feel more confident in the topic and get the chance to practise so that they excel in future exams.
