This laboratory manual contains thirty-three chemistry experiments designed to introduce readers/students to the world of chemistry and to teach them general and specific laboratory skills. Using a variety of techniques and substances that are familiar in everyday life — they engage readers/students in such activities as synthesizing a substance, finding the composition of an ore sample, checking the effectiveness of an antacid, etc. Each well-structured, illustrated lab features background information, a theoretical framework for the experiment, necessary mathematical derivations, a summary and checklist of general laboratory activities, step-by-step procedures, safety precautions, and pre- and post-lab exercises and report forms (on tear-out pages). Several appendices cover common laboratory operations and statistical treatment of data.

This book offers an extensive selection of experiments and demonstrates the fundamental principles of chemistry within the framework of familiar and interesting chemical systems.About the Author:
Larry Peck, Professor and Director of First Year Chemistry Programs at Texas A&M University, has his Ph.D. from Montana State University. He earned the school's Association of Former Students Distinguished Achievement Award in Chemistry Teaching in 2002 and the Catalyst Award (a national award for excellence in Chemistry Teaching) presented by the Chemical Manufacturers Association in 2000. Dr. Peck is very active in science teaching at all levels. Each summer for the past 17 years, he has hosted an AP Chemistry Teachers' Workshop and for the past 12 years he has directed programs designed to improve the teaching of physical science, programs now known in Texas as "integrated physics and chemistry." The resource materials developed in these workshops are currently being used as models for other state-funded teacher training programs.
