Statement of the problem. This study was carried out to determine: (1) what advantages a laboratory-centered general chemistry course might have over the conventional laboratory course, and (2) whether improved understanding of laboratory work leads to better learning of chemistry. The four following questions were raised in connection with the study or this problem:
- What is the need for a laboratory-centered course?
- What has been done in the past to meet this need?
- Can students learn chemistry more effectively in a laboratory-centered course as compared to the conventional course?
- Is a laboratory-centered course to be preferred over the conventional course in teacher planning and programming?
