Inquiring Minds Want to Know

My students need 31 carbonless copy spiral lab notebooks for collecting and recording lab data.

My Students

You're in the middle of a scientific investigation and your results could change the world: if only you had a place to record the data for posterity's sake! While the situation may not be quite so dramatic as suggested above, we do need an easy way to record our findings in AP Chemistry.

Our school is designed to give socioeconomically disadvantaged students a stellar high school education and an introductory college experience at the same time.

Students take high school and college courses simultaneously, earning 50-60 units by the time they graduate. We are starting an AP Chemistry course next year, which will allow many of the students to graduate high school with their AA degree, by providing them with college level chemistry.

My Project

One of the most memorable experiences of college chemistry is the laboratory component, which is usually five hours a week for introductory chemistry. At colleges and universities around the United States, students record their lab data in a carbon-copy notebook (which, now-a-days, is actually carbonless copy because of new advances, but same idea). Students can record their question, hypothesis, and data, complete their pre-lab, and write their conclusion. They can then rip out a copy to turn in immediately and keep a copy for their records. This encourages scientific investigation, honoring the data (i.e. not making changes to make it "look nice"), and scientific literacy.

I would like to prepare my students for college by giving them an AP chemistry course that is as similar to college General Chemistry as possible.

For labs, this means recording data in carbonless copy laboratory notebooks. Thank you for your support in making this project a reality.
