Summary

An investigative approach actively involves students in the process of scientific discovery by allowing them to make observations, devise techniques, and draw conclusions. Twenty carefully chosen laboratory topics encourage students to use their critical thinking skills to solve problems using the scientific method.

  • Brief demonstration experiments begin each investigative lab to teach students how to design their own experiments.
  • Many labs encourage teamwork, promoting collective problem solving and saving instructors time in proposing and testing hypotheses.
