The purpose of the laboratory portion of this course is to provide you, the student, with the opportunity to "do" chemistry.  The experiments are designed to provide an active learning environment.  The laboratory experiences will reinforce your understanding of the scientific method and various chemical phenomena.  The experiments have been selected to enhance the classroom discussion and provide answers to many of the questions posed in lecture course.  Students will work in pairs or groups to gather data, design experiments, and evaluate information.
