The Tools for Scientific Thinking curricula make use of microcomputer-based laboratory materials for student development of concepts and intuition in the laboratory. Each guide consists of a series of guided investigations suitable for either the high school or introductory college laboratory. The materials have been extensively tested and shown to dramatically improve students’ conceptual understanding. The units are accompanied by a detailed Teacher’s Guide and are supplied in printed, loose-leaf format. Also included are word processing files, so you can modify the activities for your situation.

The Heat and Temperature laboratory guide contains four units, each requiring about three hours: Introduction to Heat and Temperature, Energy Transfer and Temperature Changes, Changing Phase: Ice to Water and Water to Steam, and Heat Energy Transfer. Two temperature probes are required. A heat pulser is required for approximately half of the investigations. (Contact Vernier Software for details on the heat pulser.)
