Lab Inquiry in Chemistry by Bauer, Birk, Sawyer

Provides a unique set of guided-inquiry investigations that focus on constructing knowledge about the conceptual basis of laboratory techniques, instead of simply learning techniques. Intended for the two-semester general chemistry/laboratory course, as well as one-semester introductory chemistry for honours chemistry.


The emphasis put upon the students to think through a process rather than just following directions, the different writing styles for the reports, and the real-life connections to chemistry are the best part of the text.

I am very pleased with the variety of writing styles required of the students for their reports. Having the students prepare traditional scientific reports at all times does not adequately prepare them for jobs in the work force. The inclusion of cost analysis (Exp. 17), recommendations (Exp. 16), formulas, graphs, comparisons, etc. as part of the report not only helps the students prepare for future careers (in or outside chemistry) but it also makes grading for the instructors more interesting.
