40 Low-Waste, Low-Risk Chemistry Labs.
This resource book contains 40 chemistry labs and provides a single solution to the problems of purchase, storage, use, and disposal of chemicals. The text is designed to be used alone or integrated with current textbooks. A mixture of microchemistry and macrochemistry is used to provide variety and reflects trends in research and industry. Most of the experiments require one class period and difficulty levels are provided for each experiment. Each of the reproducible student activity sheets is accompanied by teacher guide pages that provide time, difficulty level, grouping, materials, preparation time, background, safety, pitfalls, typical results, calculation, and disposal. Topics include relative mass, mass-mass relationships, diffusion, emission spectra, and molar volume. An extensive section on laboratory techniques is included along with master chemical and equipment lists. (DDR)
