For laboratory courses in General Chemistry
Engaging students in real-world applications
Laboratory Manual for Chemistry: Structure and Properties provides a series of experiments written to correspond with an atoms-first approach.
The experiments connect to the daily lives of students with engaging, real-world applications and incorporate household items such as Coca-Cola®, fertilizer, light bulbs, and aluminum cans. The investigations challenge students while exposing them to recent advances in science.
The labs also promote critical thinking by placing the experiments in the context of a practical problem and emphasize data collection and analysis versus mere step-by-step instruction. Some of the exercises are inquiry-driven, while others provide a straightforward method for introducing new laboratory techniques. This manual includes a sample of problem-based and traditional experiments to give instructors flexibility.
