ELEMENTARY QUANTITATIVE CHEMISTRY, A LABORATORY TEXT.
GILREATH, ESMARCH S.; AND OTHERS
A MANUAL WAS PRODUCED CONTAINING LABORATORY PROCEDURES FOR A ONE-SEMESTER COURSE IN ELEMENTARY QUANTITATIVE CHEMISTRY ON A COLLEGE FRESHMAN LEVEL. MATERIALS AND TOPICS WERE EXAMINED AND CHOSEN AS TO DESIRABILITY, PRACTICALITY, AND EDUCATIONAL VALUE. OPTIONAL EXPERIMENTS WERE ALSO INCLUDED. THE LABORATORY PROCEDURES WERE TESTED ON SOPHOMORES AND ON FRESHMEN. NO APPRECIABLE DIFFERENCE WAS DETECTED IN THE OVERALL PERFORMANCE OF THE TWO GROUPS. A COMPARISON OF THE LABORATORY RESULTS UNDER THE OLD AND NEW PROCEDURES REVEALED THAT GRADES WITH THE NEW PROCEDURES AVERAGED 6 PERCENT HIGHER THAN GRADES OBTAINED WITH THE OLD PROCEDURES. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT QUANTITATIVE CHEMISTRY IS A SUITABLE COURSE FOR THE FRESHMAN COLLEGE LEVEL, AND PRESENTATION OF THIS COURSE SHOULD NOT BE PUT OFF UNTIL THE SOPHOMORE YEAR. THE AUTHORS CAUTIONED THAT THIS LABORATORY COURSE WOULD NOT SERVE AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED COURSES IN INSTRUMENTAL ANALYSIS WHICH ARE USUALLY OFFERED DURING THE JUNIOR OR SENIOR YEAR FOR CHEMISTRY MAJORS.
