Book Offers Wealth of Learning Opportunities from Biology to Nanotechnology

Research and Markets, the leading source for international market research and market data, has announced the addition of the "The Integrated Approach to Chemistry Laboratory: Selected Experiments" report to their offering.

This volume is intended for chemistry instructors seeking to provide engaging and challenging labs that combine all the features and benefits of the integrated laboratory. Written by educators from around the country, each chapter of the book contains a fully detailed and explained experiment, with guidance for student questions and possible customization. The book offers students and instructors a wealth of learning opportunities in experiment preparation, measurement, recording and analysis from disciplines extending from biology and microbiology to geology, nanotechnology, and microelectronics. All experiments have been classroom tested, with safety and monitoring issues given precedence. Many of the experiments contain modules that permit the instructor to make the lab more challenging as time and student ability dictate.
