A teammate called me this week wanting to obtain a triple beam balance for her students to use. Since they are in another part of storage, I was unable to help her at the moment.
I did however recommend that she use the tutorial with the projector to have them work as a class reading the scales.
The tutorial from Ohaus is great practice for students to learn to add and read the numbers used on a triple-beam balance. (Click on triple beam)
I have used the tutorial on an interactive board as well as I have had my students practice individually on a singular computer.
My teammate told me later in the day her students LOVED the activity.
If you are teaching students on how to measure with a triple-beam balance this is a great tutorial! One more thing, it is FREE!
