This book contains the teacher's instructions for lab experiments for both Introductory Physics and Accelerated Studies in Physics and Chemistry (ASPC) science courses. Each experiment includes learning objectives, a materials list, a statement of the purpose of the experiment, an overview, pre-lab discussion points, teacher’s experiment protocols, any safety precautions, and discussion of the use of any special apparatus. For some experiments calling for expensive equipment, alternative methods are suggested with less costly equipment.
There is a total of six lab experiments in the book: five apply to both texts, and ASPC has one additional.
With the purchase of this book, PDF pages of the Student Instructions will be added My Library!
Experiments are an opportunity to learn proper laboratory skills and methods which will be needed in college and possible career. They serve to illustrate concepts learned separately in the classroom. They introduce students to laboratory apparatus. They also stimulate students and enhance the course experience with an interesting tactile activity.
High School lab experiments put students in the mode of the scientist and demonstrate how scientific investigation works. They have the power to reveal to students the importance of accuracy, precision, and attention to detail like few other activities in life.
The contents of this book are a subset of our book Favorite Experiments in Physics and Physical Science, a more comprehensive resource for high school science educators.
