This lab manual integrates inquiry-based experiments with PASCO technology to prepare students for the AP Chemistry exam.
See the Buying Guide for this item's required, recommended, and additional accessories.
This experiment guide covers the latest standards for College Board Advanced Placement Chemistry. Labs are based on the College Board Learning Objectives. Data Analysis and Assessment Questions are tasks designed to prepare students for the AP® Chemistry exam. The manual includes editable student handouts. Prepare your students for inquiry investigations with:
- Initial investigations to test ideas,
- Advanced investigations to explore the phenomena,
- Extended inquiry investigations to understand the nuances of the concept followed by
- Synthesis questions and related AP style questions dealing with the concept.
Each lab includes teacher resources with pre-lab discussion and questions, procedural overview, teacher tips, sample data, assessment and synthesis questions and extended inquiry suggestions.
How-to videos are included with the manual, on the product page at PASCO.com and on Pasco's "How to" YouTube channel. These videos focus on setting up the labs and getting the most from your PASCO sensors and equipment.
