Abstract  (help)

This lessons in this unit serve as an introduction for a chemistry water quality investigation. This lesson allows students to collect some basic information. Lessons two and three acquaint students with water testing procedures and correspondence with an expert. Subsequent units involve collection, analysis, and presentation of data. (To tie this project in with the daily curriculum, use the water chemistries in different lectures throughout the year. For example, when discussing acids and bases, bring up the role of pH and alkalinity in the water supply.)
