Summary

With many years of teaching experience in the classroom and laboratory, Vickie Williamson and Larry Peck have created EXPERIMENTS IN GENERAL CHEMISTRY: INQUIRY AND SKILL BUILDING with carefully crafted and tested experiments designed to complement any general chemistry curriculum. The authors have selected three types of lab experiments to meet all of the needs of students and instructors looking for a selection of laboratory pedagogy. There are Skill Building experiments to develop techniques and demonstrate previously developed concepts, Guided Inquiry experiments to direct the students to collect data on variables without previously studying the concepts and guide them to look for patterns in the data, and Open Inquiry experiments to allow the students to apply concepts or relationships in a new setting. Twenty-eight experiments feature Pre-Lab questions and Post-Lab questions on perforated pages for easy removal of worksheets, and there is a Common Procedures and Concepts section as an appendix for easy retrieval of basic information for students.
