Summary

This collection of laboratory exercises provides small groups of students with the background information and materials needed to design and conduct their own inquiry-based projects, and report their work-orally or through posters-to the rest of the group. Laboratory exercises are supported by a detailed Instructor's Manual that offers ideas for projects, addresses difficulties that instructors may encounter using these exercises, and provides lists of needed supplies.
