Investigating Chemistry through Inquiry

This book contains 25 inquiry-based chemistry investigations, including topics such as thermochemistry, acids and bases, stoichiometry, chemical kinetics, and properties of solutions.

Description

Investigating Chemistry through Inquiry lab book contains 25 inquiry-based chemistry investigations. The book is authored by two long-time chemistry teachers, Donald L. Volz and Ray Smola, who have enjoyed using the inquiry method in their own instruction.

Each experiment includes a preliminary activity, teacher information, sample researchable questions, and sample data for those researchable questions. If you are new to inquiry-based instruction, the extensive teacher section will help guide you through the inquiry-based style of chemistry instruction.

Included with Investigating Chemistry through Inquiry

  • Complete student preliminary activities with step-by-step instructions, data tables, and questions.
  • Teacher Information section for each investigation with complete directions for setting up, helpful hints, and sample graphs and data.
  • Word-processing files of the student sections on a CD so that any investigation may be easily edited to your specifications (Microsoft® Word® files).
  • CD includes both open and guided inquiry approaches to student preliminary activities.

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