This maths problem from NRICH allows the student to explore the relationships within the temperature scales.
As well as developing a better understanding of temperature, this problem presents a number of ways in which it can be solved (trial and improvement, graphically, algebraically) so can offer a useful opportunity for discussing the merits of different strategies.

Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
