Lab Philosophy: Many of the labs in the CHEMISTRY folder are written and designed to be done BEFORE a lesson. The idea here is that we want students to EXPLORE and DISCOVER patterns that they will see in chemistry. By focusing on relationships and graphical techniques during experimentation, students can even derive formulas before being taught. The more they can DO chemistry the more they will UNDERSTAND chemistry. This will lead to a greater understanding as they consider AP or AICE Chemistry.
