Publication Date: January, 2012
Type of Resource: Practical activity/investigation

This online resource is a collection of 10 chemistry practical-related activities for students aged 16–18 yrs designed to develop their practical and independent study skills.

The activities follow a problem-based approach to laboratory instruction, in which the students must work in groups to apply their understanding of a concept to devise a solution to a practical problem set in a real-life context.

Additional Information

The problems are designed to fit into two separate one-hour lessons or one single two-hour lesson with the students working in groups of three. The pre-lab questions and report writing can be completed in additional class time or set for homework.
