About this Product

Features

  • Initiate the study of basic concepts in the general, organic, and biochemistry laboratory through concise introductory material and pre-lab questions that familiarize students with the concepts presented in each exercise. 
  • Investigate the mysteries of matter by following the clearly written procedures and recording data and observations on the provided data sheets. Safety notes, OSHA pictograms, and Technique Tip boxes help students develop skills in laboratory technique while safely working through procedures.
  • Integrate knowledge of each laboratory topic by making sense of the data students have collected. Critical thinking questions assist students in making connections between what they have learned in lab and how this knowledge can be applied to their studies.
