Essential Chemistry Basic Equipment Kit - EC-6360



The Essential Chemistry Basic Equipment Kit is designed to support the labs in the Essential Chemistry Curriculum. The curriculum includes 69 activities, 47 of which require PASCO probeware or equipment. This kit provides the sensors and other items to perform 33 of those 47 labs. The remaining 22 activities use equipment, glassware, and chemicals traditionally found in chemistry labs. The labs activities range from chemical formulas and specific heat to electrolytes and the titration of an unknown acid. 

This kit will outfit a single chemistry lab station of 2-5 students. When used in conjunction with the Essential Chemistry program, including the eBook and lab manual, it creates a complete solution for teaching high school chemistry.

It can also be used to supplement your existing textbook, serving as the lab component of your curriculum.  This use is supported by the over 70 standards-based Essential Chemistry labs that are available for free download in the PASCO Digital Library.
