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.
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).
