Students will use the linear regression analysis application on the TI-84 graphing calculator to model the nature of density as a unique physical property of a substance. They will understand that density is a characteristic property of matter that is often used by chemists to identify a substance and as such, the value for the density of a particular substance does not change regardless of how large or small the sample size is.
