Forensics with Vernier is for teachers at the high school level who wish to introduce their students to forensics using engaging and realistic laboratory activities with Vernier probeware.
Containing lab activities dealing with various aspects of forensic science, each experiment is preceded by a short scenario that introduces the concepts or methods to be addressed in the activity. These introductory sequences are designed to “hook” the students and show them situations that require various forensic techniques. The Case Analysis questions for each activity relate to the concepts and techniques addressed in the lab, and many require the students to “solve” the crime introduced in the scenario with the data they collect.
