Experiments in General Chemistry: Inquiry and Skill Building 2nd Edition

Vickie Williamson, Larry Peck

  • Published
  • Previous Editions 2009
  • 412 Pages

Overview

With many years of teaching experience in the classroom and laboratory, Vickie Williamson and Larry Peck have created EXPERIMENTS IN GENERAL CHEMISTRY: INQUIRY AND SKILL BUILDING, 2nd edition with carefully crafted and tested experiments designed to complement any general chemistry curriculum. The authors have selected three types of lab experiments to meet all of the needs of students and instructors looking for a selection of laboratory pedagogy. There are Skill Building experiments to develop techniques and demonstrate previously developed concepts, Guided Inquiry experiments to direct the students to collect data on variables without previously studying the concepts and guide them to look for patterns in the data, and Open Inquiry experiments to allow the students to apply concepts or relationships in a new setting. Twenty-eight experiments feature Pre-Lab questions and Post-Lab questions on perforated pages for easy removal of worksheets, and there is a Common Procedures and Concepts section as an appendix for easy retrieval of basic information for students.

Vickie Williamson, Texas A&M University

Vickie M. Williamson is an Instructional Professor at Texas A&M University. She received her BS from Central Oklahoma University and PhD from the University of Oklahoma. She has taught at the high school, community college, and university levels, as well as published several peer-reviewed chemical education research papers dealing with classroom techniques to increase students’ understanding of chemistry. She was named the 2015 recipient of the ACS Award for Achievement in Research for the Teaching and Learning of Chemistry for her body of research on the visualization of the particulate nature of matter and the 2017 Outstanding University Science Teacher Award from the Society of College Science Teachers. She has authored a laboratory inquiry-based manual for liberal arts chemistry, interactive CDs for high-school chemistry, textbooks and supplements for middle school to college level chemistry, and standardized chemistry examinations. She has been dedicated to teaching atoms-first general chemistry since 2012.

Larry Peck, Texas A&M University

The late M. Larry Peck, Professor Emeritus at Texas A&M University, received his PhD from Montana State University in 1971. He won the Chemical Manufacturers Association Catalyst Award in 2000, Texas A&M's Association of Former Students Distinguished Achievement Award in Chemistry Teaching in 2002, and the Division of Chemical Education's Outstanding Service to the Division Award in 2007. Until his retirement in 2006, Dr. Peck taught science at all levels and directed programs designed to improve the teaching of physical science programs now known in Texas as "integrated physics and chemistry." The resource materials developed in these workshops are being used as models for other state-funded teacher training programs.
