Chemical Demonstrations #4: Chemical Demonstrations Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The demonstrations capture interest, teach, inform, fascinate, amaze, and perhaps, most importantly, involve students in chemistry. Nowhere else will you find books that answer, "How come it happens? . . . Is it safe? . . . What do I do with all the stuff when the demo is over?"

Shakhashiri and his collaborators offer 282 chemical demonstrations arranged in 11 chapters. Each demonstration includes seven sections: a brief summary, a materials list, a step-by-step account of procedures to be used, an explanation of the hazards involved, information on how to store or dispose of the chemicals used, a discussion of the phenomena displayed and principles illustrated by the demonstration, and a list of references. You'll find safety emphasized throughout the book in each demonstration.

Book News Annotation:

For secondary school science teachers, suggests and explains nearly 50 classroom tricks that will catch students' attention. The fourth volume of the ongoing series covers clock reactions (which don't do anything for a minute, then do something abrupt) and demonstrations of electrochemistry (batteries, cells, and plating). Lists the contents of previous volumes.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

'

Color and light are the focus of this long-awaited fifth volume in the Chemical Demonstrations series, which describes demonstrations that effectively communicate science to both students and general audiences. Using full-color illustrations, the book provides meticulous instructions for safely demonstrating colorful phenomena and illustrating scientific principles. A rich introductory section explores the science of color and light, outlines the chemical processes of vision, and explains what happens when visual information enters the human eye and is perceived by the brain. With more than fifty demonstrations and multiple procedures included, this volume offers abundant opportunities to arouse and sustain interest in science for both classroom and public presentations.
