Description:

LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS IN GENERAL CHEMISTRY FEATURING MEASURENET is the first self-directed laboratory manual to incorporate experiments conducted with MeasureNet -- an innovative, network data collection system that introduces students to "real world" chemistry. With the new use of MeasureNet, experiments are more precise, only requiring small quantities of chemicals, making the lab safer and environmentally friendly. This laboratory manual is designed to first prepare students for the laboratory setting through conceptual and technique experiments. Students then work to solve a multi-component question, utilizing what they learned in previous experiments. Through this approach, and with the help of MeasureNet's modern electronic data collection, analysis, and reduction, students truly prepare themselves for conducting chemistry in a professional setting!

Bobby Stanton received his Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from Tennessee Technological University and his doctorate from The University of Tennessee. He is an Academic Professional at the University of Georgia and serves as the Coordinator of General Chemistry Laboratories. He is involved in the development of Self-Directed (a form of guided inquiry) experiments designed for the MeasureNet Digital Data Acquisition System, and has authored or co-authored 15 publications in journals such as ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY AND APPLIED SPECTROSCOPY.

Currently a faculty member at Indiana University - Purdue University at Indianapolis (IUPUI), Lin Zhu has taught at University of Hawaii at Manoa, University of Hawaii at Hilo, and University of Georgia. When he served as Franklin Fellow at the University og Georgia, he was involved in the development of experiments designed for the MeasureNet Digital Data Acquisition System. He has authored or co-authored articles in journals such as JOURNAL OF PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY and MICROPOROUS AND MESOPOROUS MATERIALS. Lin Zhu received his Bachelor's Degree from Peking University in Beijing, China, and his Ph.D. from University of Hawaii at Manoa.

Dr. Charles H. Atwood received his BS degree in chemistry from Millsaps College and his PhD in nuclear chemistry from Florida State University. His postdoctoral research was conducted at the Australian National University. A temporary appointment at the University of Georgia was followed by a ten-year stay at Mercer University where Dr. Atwood developed a series of papers on teaching nuclear topics in the chemistry curriculum. In 1995, he joined the faculty of the University of Georgia's chemistry department and was named Coordinator of Freshman Chemistry in 1997. He holds this position to date. . At the University of Georgia, Dr. Atwood has developed significant use of instructional technology in the freshman chemistry program, including pioneering computerized testing. Over the last three years, his research group has studied the use of item response theory to analyze student performance on assessments, with the ultimate goal of improving teaching in the program. He is also the author of two other successful SURVIVAL GUIDES. His hobbies include astronomy, traveling, and bicycle riding.
