These laboratory manuals are designed for use in introductory undergraduate courses for non-science majors. Topics and investigations have been selected and developed to achieve three primary goals: to model laboratory procedures characteristic of the scientific method, to teach fundamental concepts in science, and to provide science experiences for students preparing to teach at the elementary school level. These lab manuals include introductory and background information, procedural steps, data gathering, interpretation and conclusion questions. Topics in Part I include chemistry, geology, and meteorology. The Fundamental topics for Part II are physics, astronomy, and biology.
