A Solution to Solutions
Students learn terminology, concentration units, and how to convert units. They study basic chemistry, chemical equilibria, multicomponent assays, laboratory measurements, and the dangers of “rough handling” in the lab. Chapters and subchapters are divided into sections focusing on specific tasks. Math anxiety is reduced by a clear, concise review of basic algebra and the necessary logarithms. Laboratory exercises feature success tips and calculation exercises include a “reality check” component that encourages students to consider whether or not their calculations make real-world sense.
A Solution to Solutions is a class-tested, accessible, and student-friendly resource that provides all the skills necessary to survive and succeed in laboratory work. It is well-suited to biology, chemistry, and biochemistry laboratory courses, particularly those at level 200 and above.
