A New Course of Experimental Chemistry, with Key

Article metrics


THE basis of the course of instruction here put forward consists in making the student perform an experiment with a definite object in view. The result of the experiment is carefully withheld, and must be discovered by the student himself. In this way he is led to acquire knowledge by his own exertions, and theoretically at least such a method has more to recommend it than any other. In practice, however, the time required to rigorously carry out this system is no doubt an obstacle to its general adoption.
