Laboratory Manual to Accompany Chemistry: Atoms Firstby Gregg Dieckmann and John Sibertfrom the University of Texas at Dallas. This laboratory manual presents a lab curriculum that isorganized around an atoms-first approach to general chemistry. The philosophy behind this manualis to (1) provide engaging experiments that tap into student curiosity, (2) emphasize topics thatstudents find challenging in the general chemistry lecture course, and (3) create a laboratory environmentthat encourages students to "solve puzzles" or "play" with course content and not just"follow recipes." Laboratory Manual represents a terrific opportunity to get students turned on toscience while creating an environment that connects the relevance of the experiments to a greaterunderstanding of their world. This manual has been written to provide instructors with tools thatengage students, while providing important connections to the material covered in an atoms-firstlecture course.
