Peer-reviewed, classroom-tested, and tailored specifically for introductory science courses, Favourite Demonstrations is an essential complement to every college instructor's lesson plans. The book is an all-in-one compilation of 36 popular classroom demonstrations published since 1993 in the qFavorite Demonstrationq column of NSTA's Journal of College Science Teaching. The collection begins with a chapter on safety, qThe Rules of Research.q From there, chapters emphasize conveying scientific principles while making them memorable. The demonstations cover general science, biology, chemistry, Earth science, and physics while many illustrate the interdisciplinary nature of science by showing how the various subjects contribute to each other's knowledge base. Most are simple to prepare; use low-cost, readily available materials; and can be repeated throughout the day for back-to-back classes.The. Ammonia. Lava. Lamp. A. Colorful. Demonstration. of.
