10th Grade Performance Task

Contributed by: The RAND Institute (RAND)

In this task, students explore the relationship between color and heat absorption by measuring the temperature change of water in differently colored test tubes as they are exposed to a heat lamp. Students first have the opportunity to "mess around" with the equipment. They then design and perform an experiment and finish by completing a pre-designed experiment and analyzing results.
