Titration (DVD)
Titration (DVD)
D018

Titration allows students to apply scientific concepts to discover what a titration is, how it is performed and how to determine when it is complete. Students see how this technique is applied in a number of real-world settings and become actively engaged in an experiment by using a scientific approach to determine the amount of vitamin C in a number of foods. Viewers learn about proper safety procedures as they watch a group of high school students gather, organize and present their data. Part of the multivolume Science Lab Investigations! DVD Series. Includes a Teacher's Guide.

Laws of Motion: Hovercrafts (DVD)
Laws of Motion: Hovercrafts (DVD)
D017

In The Laws of Motion: Hovercrafts, students will learn how to make and use models to investigate the principles behind the laws of motion. As they test and refine their project, students -- and viewers -- are encouraged to make predictions based on experimental evidence as they learn to calculate the effect of forces on the motion of objects. The concepts of Newtonian mechanics are investigated by using clear demonstrations and graphics, and students discover how technological advancements are built on scientific knowledge.

Spectrophotometry (DVD)
Spectrophotometry (DVD)
D016

Discover how scientists are able to learn about the world around us by studying how light interacts with matter. Spectrophotometry gives students an understanding of the principles of spectral analysis and explains the relationship between absorbance and transmittance. Students then go inside the lab to put this information into action as they perform serial dilutions, develop a standard curve and determine the concentration of aspirin in two unknown solutions using a spectrophotometer. In the process, they use proper scientific procedures and come to understand that measurement errors may affect calculations. Part of the multivolume Science Lab Investigations! DVD Series. Includes a Teacher's Guide.

Lab Safety (DVD)
Lab Safety (DVD)
D014

Lab Safety introduces students to safety guidelines that must be followed when designing and conducting scientific investigations. Lab safety techniques are outlined, as well as the correct use of personal protective equipment. Through a hands-on lab investigation, students learn that the chemicals and biological agents used in the lab are worthy of respect, and discover that sloppy procedures can not only produce unreliable data, but put themselves and others at risk. 23 minutes.

Energy & Chemical Reactions (DVD)
Energy & Chemical Reactions (DVD)
D013

In Energy and Chemical Reactions, students will investigate and explain how chemical reactions release or absorb energy. The rate of a reaction depends on a number of factors, including temperature, concentration of particles and the presence of catalysts. Students will put this information to use as they employ the scientific method to perform a lab investigation in which they study the effects of temperature and limiting reagents on the rate of a chemiluminescent reaction. Also included is a look at how some living organisms use chemical reactions to emit bursts of light! Part of the multivolume Science Lab Investigations! DVD Series. Includes a Teacher's Guide.

DNA Transformation (DVD)
DNA Transformation (DVD)
D012

Cutting and pasting DNA fragments together are among the first techniques learned in the molecular biology lab, and are fundamental to all recombinant DNA work. In DNA Transformation, viewers will become familiar with sterile technique in the lab and learn about the basic tools used by molecular biologists. They will observe how genes are isolated by using gel electrophoresis. Students conduct an investigation in which they insert recombinant DNA into living bacteria, transforming them into organisms that glow in the dark! Part of the multivolume Science Lab Investigations! DVD Series. Includes a Teacher's Guide.

Comparative Anatomy: Dissection (DVD)
Comparative Anatomy: Dissection (DVD)
D011

Comparative Anatomy: Dissection uses systematics and anatomy to illustrate the similarities and differences of systems in different organisms. Students learn how advances in medicine have come from the careful study of organs and have an opportunity to discuss the ethical codes of scientists. Through a lab investigation, students become comfortable with the scientific tools and habits of mind used in the fields of gross anatomy and histology.

Chromatography (DVD)
Chromatography (DVD)
D010

In Chromatography, viewers learn a valuable technique for the rapid separation of chemical mixtures. After the scientific principles of paper chromatography are conveyed through real-life demonstrations and clear graphics, students move into the lab to analyze a number of ink samples, calculating Rf values for the pigments found in each sample. Students investigate the experimental techniques used to determine if two samples are identical by creating a unique visual "fingerprint" of each tested substance. They also explore the factors affecting each separation and extend the investigation by choosing different solvents for the mobile phase. See how gas chromatography is used in arson investigations and how thin-layer chromatography can be utilized to confirm a document's authenticity. Part of the multivolume Science Lab Investigations! DVD Series. Includes a Teacher's Guide.
