The first ten chapters present a general introduction to solids; numerous easy-to-do teacher demonstrations are integrated into the material. Examples from cutting-edge research, as well as everyday life, spark student interest while illustrating the basic ideas that are important to an understanding of chemistry.. The book collects a critical mass of text, demonstrations, and laboratory experiments. This resource volume, written especially for teachers of introductory chemistry courses, is in a ready-to-use format that will enable instructors to integrate materials chemistry into their curriculum. The second part of the volume consists of fifteen laboratory experiments for students
A Material Science Companion C. H. The authors have done a fantastic job of presenting general chemistry with a material science flavor. Each chapter clearly presents materials and their effects on our lives as well as demonstrations to help the educator present the material to their classes. We have the students use the text as a reference for a 'materials lab' in our general chemistry course and the students loved it. The text, if adopted for a class, has lab experiments containing clear lists of all parts and equipment needed as well as suggested sources. The experiments range for simple tests to complete property studies or synthetic processes. We found the text complim. Materials Science Laboratory and Demonstration Resource Nathan A. Unterman There are very few resources for demonstrations and laboratory activities in Materials Science that can be used on the secondary or introductory college level. This is an excellent resource for that class. Some of the links and product sources are dated (such as amorphous metals), but most can either be easily fabricated, or obtained from alternate vendors.
