This established manual focuses on using non-hazardous materials to teach the experimental nature of general chemistry. Experiments are written to address students of various academic backgrounds, and differing interests and abilities in chemistry. While most experiments can be conducted in a single three-hour period, some have been designed to be completed over an extended time to illustrate that chemical systems do not work at an arbitrary schedule. Suggestions are provided for combining experiments of shorter length and similar pedagogy.

George McKelvy was born in Nashville, Tennessee, and received his BS in Secondary Education, Mathematics and Physical Sciences from the University of Tennessee, Martin, Tennessee. He taught Middle (Mathematics) and Secondary School (Mathematics, Chemistry, and Physics) for 23 years while earning his M.Ed. in Physical Sciences from Georgia State University. His Ph.D. in (Physical) Science Education came after teaching Physics and Mathematics at Clayton College and State University and joining the staff of the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1996. His initial position as Demonstration Teacher included working with Toby Block in the introductory…
