The diagram below shows the dimensions of length for a block of wood that has a mass of 45g. Using the measurements of length and mass given, DETERMINE THE VOLUME of the block. Don’t forget to:(1) Write out the formula (V=LxWxH) (1pt)(2) Show your work (plug #’s into the formula) (1pt)(3) Label your answer with proper units (1pt)(4) Round the final calculation to the nearest 10th (2pts)

A student conducted an experiment to find out if air temperature affected the total number of seeds that germinate.  Two groups of 100 identical seeds were used.  One group was kept at an air temperature of 10°C and the other at an air temperature of 20°C.  All other conditions were held constant.  Observations made during the experiment are shown in the data table below.

Using the graph below, determine how many seeds would have germinated at 10°C by day 12. (write the number only)

A student is given a ruler and hand lens and asked to make observations and inferences about rock samples collected on a field trip.  The student wrote the 3 statements below:
1) The rock is mostly gray, with white speckles on the surface.
2) If the rock probably formed in a watery environment.
3) The rock has a smooth surface.
