Matsuo, Tsutomu; And Others – Journal of Chemical Education, 1989
Discussed are the construction and uses of a version of a photoelectric colorimeter by students. Included are materials needed and four experiments which use the equipment. Sample results are shown. (CW)
Descriptors: Chemistry, College Science, Computer Interfaces, Higher Education
Smith, B. R.; And Others – Journal of Agronomic Education (JAE), 1989
Described is a technique for taking a large monolith for the purpose of teaching soil structure. Materials and procedures are detailed. A survey of 93 students indicated that the larger monolith was preferred over the commonly used narrow ones. (CW)
Descriptors: Agricultural Education, Agronomy, College Science, Higher Education
Levine, S. J.; And Others – Journal of Agronomic Education (JAE), 1989
Compared are the estimates of students and professional field soil scientists. Results indicate that with three weeks of practice and the availability of good reference samples, students can attain a level of proficiency comparable to professional soil scientists. Suggestions for grading evaluations are provided. (Author/CW)
