Labs

Copies of experiments I have adapted/written for use in Honors and A.P. level classes can be accessed via the links below. Prep information is available on request. I would also be happy to offer suggestions for adapting the experiments to your particular situation.

Honors Chemistry Experiments

A.P. Lab Text, 6th ed.

Links below are for significant collections of material. that span an entire course. You can find more specific topic links (some of which refer to sections of the sources on this page) in the Topics section.

  • Digital Chem1A Laboratory Manual

    From the U.C. Berkeley course keyed to the Munowitz text.

  • The Lab Archive

    A compendium of labs covering a multitude of topics (including organic), from high school through college. View, post, share, rate--it's all there! From Cathy Sarisky at Everett Community College in Washington.

  • Lab experiments for High School Chemistry

    From Gwen Sibert of Roanoke Valley Governor's School in Virginia.

  • Chembox experiments

    This is a collection of experiments for a computer-interfaced system called Chembox. Most, if not all, of the experiments can be easily adapted to the CBL or similar systems. From Peter Keusch at the University of Regensberg (Didactics of Chemistry--Chemistry Education site).

  • CASSY data logger experiments

    More (some repeat) experiments for a computer-interfaced system called CASSY. Most, if not all, of the experiments can be easily adapted to the CBL or similar systems. From Peter Keusch at the University of Regensberg (Didactics of Chemistry--Chemistry Education site).

  • Introductory labs

    Experiments indexed by technique and/or subject area from the Science in Motion mobile lab program sponsored by Juniata College.

  • AP Labs

    Labs (complete write-ups with teacher information) for the Science in Motion mobile lab program sponsored by Juniata College.

  • AP Chemistry by Satellite Laboratory Manual

    From John I. Gelder, Nancy S. Gettys, I. Dwaine Eubanks, Oklahoma State University.

  • Chemistry in the Modern World Laboratory

    Selected laboratory experiments from the course at California State University at Stanislaus.

  • MicrEcol

    Microscale experiments in chemistry for students 13 years and over. Includes sections for teachers, students and parents, as well as a host of varied experiments using simple equipment. From Peter Schwartz, Germany.

  • Microscale Experiments for Secondary Schools

    There were 43 well-documented experiments at last count. Part of David W. Brooks' site.

  • Doing Chemistry

    Another section of David W. Brooks' site, devoted to experiments and demonstrations suitable for high schools, 134 of them!

  • The Chemistry of Photography

    A great laboratory course with excellent background information included in each experiment. Definitely worth a look! From California State University at Stanislaus.

  • Patrick Gormley's Science Resource Center

    Demonstrations and labs for chemistry, physics and biology.

  • Countertop chemistry

    Demonstrations and experiments that use materials you can find at the drug or hardware store, from North Carolina State University

  • Labs for Anytime Anywhere Chemistry Experience

    Home experiments for science majors General Chemistry. From Doris Kimbrough (University of Colorado at Denver) and Jimmy Reeves (University of North Carolina at Wilmington) (Web-based distance learning)

  • LabWrite

    "Guides you through the entire laboratory process from before you walk into the lab to after you get back your graded report". Tutorials and step-by-step checks for students writing lab reports. Hints for instructors, too. From Michael Carter, Eric Wiebe and Miriam Ferzli and hosted at North Carolina State University.
