Handbook of Chemical Investigations

Handbook of Chemical Investigations is a reference book that students use to help plan, conduct, and understand their investigations. It includes sections on safety, materials, common and safe substances to investigate, evidence to observe, variables to change, and hints for choosing questions to investigate. Reference sections include information on atoms and molecules, chemical formulas, and a periodic table of elements. Students use this reference book throughout the unit to generate ideas for their own investigations as well as to look up information to make sense of the chemical reactions they observe.
