Experiences in Chemistry 2nd Edition
Experiences in Chemistryis alaboratory manual written with the small school or homeschool in mind. It teaches fundamental chemical principles using classic experiments, and is designed to accompany any high school chemistry text, preparing the student for college level chemistry lab.
The experiments are built to incorporate equipment which can be found easily, whether in the grocery store or from a supplier. A complete list of equipment and chemicals identifies where to locate each item. Most of the experiments use easy-to-find household chemicals and equipment, demonstrating that you do not need expensive equipment to teach a high school chemistry lab. Safety rules for the chemistry lab are emphasized.
- The Properties of Matter
- The Kinetic Theory
- Gas Laws
- Chemical Reactions
- Balancing Equations
- Re-dox Reactions
- Acid-Base Reactions
- Rates of Reactions
- Empirical Formulas
- Production and Characteristics of Gases
Experiments have questions which use real world applications to help the student understand the practical meaning of the chemical principles involved. Answer key is included!
Concepts covered include density, properties of water, kinetic energy, gas laws, chemical reactions, balancing equations, re-due reactions, acid-base reactions, rates of reactions, empirical formulas, and production and combustion of gases. The author recommends completing 25 experiments from the 30+ activities included for a high school credit.
