Student Preparation

All classroom experiments begin with an instruction stage that acquaints students with the tasks that they will perform during the experiment. In some very simple experiments it may be possible to give students informal verbal instructions during class. For more complex experiments it is best to have written instructions so that students can refer to them during the experiment. In this case instructors should consider whether it is best to have students prepare in advance of class or in class.

1. Pre-Class Instructions
2. In Class Instructions
