Each Vernier Lab Book includes:

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). Each CD includes both the computer and calculator version of each student experiment!
