Details: Product Description Succeed in your chemistry course using this lab manual's unique blend of laboratory skills and exercises that effectively illustrate concepts from the main text, CHEMISTRY FOR TODAY: GENERAL, ORGANIC, AND BIOCHEMISTRY, 8th and 9th Editions. The book's 15 general chemistry and 20 organic/biochemistry safety-scale laboratory experiments use small quantities of chemicals and emphasize safety and proper disposal of materials. 'Safety-scale' is the authors' own term for describing the amount of chemicals each lab experiment requires -- less than macroscale quantities, which are expensive and hazardous, and more than microscale quantities, which are difficult to work with and require special equipment. About the Author Spencer L. Seager retired from Weber State University in 2013 after serving for 52 years as a faculty member of the chemistry department. He served as department chairman from 1969 until 1993 and taught general and physical chemistry at the university. Dr. Seager was also active in projects designed to help improve chemistry and other science education in local elementary schools. He received his B.S. in chemistry and Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Utah. He currently serves as an adjunct professor at Weber State and the University of South Dakota, where he teaches online courses in general chemistry, elementary organic chemistry, and elementary biochemistry. Maren S. Hansen is a science teacher at West High School, where she teaches honors biology. She has also taught AP biology and biology in the International Baccalaureate Program. She received her B.A. and master of education degrees from Weber State University. Professor Hansen's professional interests have focused upon helping students participate in Science Olympiad and Science Fair. Her other interests include adventure travel, mountain hiking, gardening, and the company of friends and family. She hopes to share her love of science with her two children.
