Big Ideas: Density is a measure of the amount of material per a specific unit of area or volume. This task applies knowledge of density to a real-life situation: trees in a forest. Students will build on practice from statistics and geometry by using random sections to predict the result for the entire forest. Vocabulary: density Special Materials: copies of the handout for each group or individual a coin (or similar object) for each group or individual
