A Selection of General Chemistry Lab Experiment Titles Performed With MeasureNet

A Selection of General Chemistry Experiments

MeasureNet's design has always offered instructors significant pedagogical flexibility by supporting a wide range of experiment types regardless of whether students work independently or collaboratively. But as Measurenet has expanded from its origins at the University of Cincinnati, its inventory of experiments (and their approaches and styles) has diversified commensurately.

Adopting electronic data acquisition doesn't require, however, the discarding of proven experiments that build student skills or enhance understanding of important concepts. Older experiments can be easily integrated into syllabi combined with those appropriate for MeasureNet. Others needing conversion can be adapted with the help of our curriculum specialists.

The following are examples of titles for POGIL, STEM, Self-Directed, Guided Inquiry, and Verification-style experiments using MeasureNet:
