Unformatted text preview: Academic Chemistry Laboratories is now published in three parts—Safety in the Elementary (K–6) Science Classroom, Chemical Safety for Teachers and Their Supervisors: Grades 7–12, and Safety in Academic Chemistry Laboratories (now in two volumes—this volume for students who work with chemicals in college and university laboratories, and a companion volume for faculty, graduate student teaching assistants, and administrators). Younger students in the presecondary and secondary grades begin to learn by instruction. As students mature, their instruction is presented less passively, and they take a more active role in learning. By the time they reach the college or university level, students’ active participation should be an essential part of the learning process. To reflect the active participation of the maturing student, we have added a subtitle, Accident Prevention, to this edition. I wish to acknowledge the helpful suggestions and contributions of the members of the Joint Board–Council Committee on Chemical Safety, with particular thanks to Robert Alaimo, Charles Greenlief, Rubye Torrey, and George Wahl, members of the Revision Subcommittee, and to Eileen Segal, Russell Phifer, Stephen Sichak, Dan McDonald, and Bernard Blais.
