LabSkills PreLabs v2 for Chemical Principles in the Laboratory 11th Edition

Emil Slowinski, Wayne C. Wolsey, Robert Rossi

  • Published
Starting At 105.00 See pricing and ISBN options

Overview

Are your students ready for Lab? Are you tired of spending valuable lab time going over safety practices and techniques? Package this card with your text to give your students access to the new OWLv2 course featuring LabSkills, a proven tool in preparing students for lab. OWLv2 is the most trusted online learning solution for chemistry, and when coupled with LabSkills, this course prepares students for lab through automatically graded pre-lab assignments and makes it easy for you to assign the material for students to complete before lab. Pre-lab assignments include questions and exercises specifically written to tie chemical concepts learned in lecture to the laboratory experiments. LabSkills includes step-by-step videos to introduce students to lab techniques, equipment and safety skills; interactive modules that allow students to interact with lab equipment prior to lab; safety training and information to ensure that students are prepared to safely complete their labs; and quizzes to assess student understanding and retention of key concepts.

Emil Slowinski, Macalester College

Emil J. Slowinski is an Emeritus DeWitt Wallace Professor of Chemistry at Macalester College. He earned a B.S. degree from Massachusetts State College in 1946 and a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1949. He taught at Swarthmore College, 1949-1952; the University of Connecticut, 1952-1964; and Macalester College, 1964-1988. His sabbatical leaves were at Oxford University in 1960 and the University of Warsaw in 1968. He is a co-author, with Bill Masterton and/or Wayne Wolsey, of more than 25 books on various areas of general chemistry. He was actively involved in all editions of CHEMICAL PRINCIPLES IN THE LABORATORY up through the 9th edition, and though now retired from active writing still offers insights, advice, and support to his coauthors.

Wayne C. Wolsey, Macalester College

Wayne C. Wolsey, an inorganic chemist, received his B.S. from Michigan State University in 1958 and his Ph.D. from the University of Kansas in 1962. He joined the Macalester College faculty in 1965 and is now in "semi-retirement." His last three sabbaticals were spent at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. In 2001-2002, he investigated various complexing agents for their effectiveness in dissolving calcium oxalate kidney stones, in collaboration with a former student, now a urologist. He has received various awards, including the Minnesota College Science Teacher of the Year in 1989; Macalester's Thomas Jefferson Award in 1993; designation as a MegaMole contributor to Minnesota Chemical Education in 1997; and an award from the Minnesota State AAUP Conference in 2001 for his support of academic freedom and shared governance. He remains professionally active in a number of scientific organizations.

Robert Rossi, Macalester College

Robert C. Rossi is the Laboratory Supervisor in the Chemistry Department at Macalester College. He obtained a B.S. degree in chemical engineering from the University of Wisconsin - Madison in 1993 and upon graduation joined the Peace Corps, serving in the Fiji Islands. He then taught and carried out applied photoelectrochemistry and semiconductor physics research at the California Institute of Technology, earning a Ph.D. in 2001. After several years teaching as a visiting professor at Carleton College, he moved to Macalester College, where he has been since 2003. In 2011 he became a co-author of Chemical Principles in the Laboratory, first writing for the 10th Edition.
OWLv2
OWLv2 offers a full, mobile-ready textbook combined with mastery learning activities that allow students to understand each concept and skill at their own pace.

This Cengage solution can be seamlessly integrated into most Learning Management Systems (Blackboard, Brightspace by D2L, Canvas, Moodle, and more) but does require a different ISBN for access codes.

OWLv2 Instructor Testimonial: Barbara Oakley

Listen to what Instructor Barbara Oakley has to say about learning Chemistry and using OWLv2!

“It gives you a warning if there may be an incorrect submission so you have a chance to recheck before you submit answer. If you get the question wrong, it explains the solution in detail so that you can still continue to learn.”

"During class lectures, you’re given the information but not how to use it. With chemistry it’s all about practice, and OWLv2 gives you so many options to learn and use the content.”

“It breaks down the problems into steps that make it easy to learn the concepts.”

“I like that it really breaks down the chapter in terms of the basic concepts, then there are separate questions that involve applying the concepts and theories in order to solve the problems. It provides a really great learning structure for grasping new material.”

“The mastery questions are awesome. They are set up so you can’t just look at them and apply a formula. They force students to go beyond the foundational concepts and really tap into higher-level thinking.”

“If you hold students accountable, they realize OWL will help them understand concepts and get a better grade.”
