This established manual contains both classical experiments and "guided discovery" experiments in which students are given background information and are required to devise hypotheses, design procedures to test those hypotheses, evaluate their results, and to make suggestions for improving their work. Experiments are written to address students of various academic backgrounds and differing interests and abilities in chemistry. The experiments presented minimize the use of hazardous materials and provide detailed instructions on disposing of wastes. The Fifth Edition also allows experiments to be conducted in a conventional laboratory setting or with CBL-2 technology. While most experiments…

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…
