Advanced Chemistry with Vernier

Advanced Chemistry with Vernier contains 35 experiments appropriate for AP* Chemistry or college general chemistry. Use it in addition to​ ​Vernier Chemistry Investigations for Use with AP* Chemistry​ ​for a comprehensive set of topics.​ ​


Advanced Chemistry with Vernier has 35 advanced chemistry experiments designed for use with Vernier data-collection technology. There are four student alternative versions included for each experiment: computer, LabQuest, calculator, and a generic version that covers all platforms. Experiments are included for the Vernier Temperature Probe, pH Sensor, Conductivity Probe, Drop Counter, Colorimeter, Gas Pressure Sensor, Current Probe, ORP Sensor, and Radiation Monitor.

​Starting with the 2013-2014 school year, the AP Chemistry Course Description recommended labs have been reduced from 22 to 16 and at least six of the 16 experiments should be an inquiry-based model of instruction. Advanced Chemistry with Vernier provides a variety of experiments for the additional 10 non-inquiry experiments.

Included with Advanced Chemistry with Vernier

  • Complete student experiments with materials list, step-by-step instructions, data tables, and questions.
  • Teacher Information section for each experiment with complete directions for setting up experiments, helpful hints, and sample graphs and data.
  • Word-processing files of the student sections on a CD so that any experiment may be easily edited to your specifications (Microsoft Word for Macintosh and Windows files).
  • CD includes instructions to perform the experiments on every supported platform:
    • Computer
    • LabQuest in standalone mode
    • Calculator (EasyData and Datamate)

Features listed above are only available when you purchase the lab book. The downloadable evaluation PDFs include student instructions only.
