Science students are expected to produce lab reports, but are rarely adequately instructed on how to write them. Aimed at undergraduate students, Successful Lab Reports bridges the gap between the many books about writing term papers and the advanced books about writing papers for publication in scientific journals, neither of which gives much information on writing science lab reports. The first part guides students through the structure as they write a first draft. The second part shows how to revise the report and polish science writing skills as the student continues to write science lab reports.

Write Like a Chemist is a unique guide to chemistry-specific writing. Written with National Science Foundation support and extensively piloted in chemistry courses nationwide, it offers a structured approach to writing that targets four important chemistry genres: the journal article, conference abstract, scientific poster, and research proposal. Chemistry students, post-docs, faculty, and other professionals interested in perfecting their disciplinary writing will find it an indispensable reference. Users of the book will learn to write through a host of exercises, ranging in difficulty from correcting single words and sentences to writing professional-quality papers, abstracts, posters, and proposals. The book's read-analyze-write approach teaches students to analyze what they read and then write, paying attention to audience, organization, writing conventions, grammar, and science content, thereby turning the complex process of writing into graduated, achievable tasks. Concise writing and organizational skills are stressed throughout, and "move structures" teach students conventional ways to present their stories of scientific discovery. This resource includes over 350 excerpts from ACS journal articles, ACS conference abstracts, and successful NSF CAREER proposals, excerpts that will serve as useful models of chemistry writing for years to come. Other special features: Usable in chemistry lab, lecture, and writing-dedicated courses Useful as a writing resource for practicing chemists Augmented by Language Tips that address troublesome areas of language and grammer in a self-study format Accompanied by a Web site: http://www.oup.com/us/writelikeachemist Supplemented with an answer key for faculty adopting the book

A comprehensive, easy-to-understand guide to the entire research process, this book quickly and efficiently equips advanced students and research assistants to conduct a full-scale investigation. The book is organized around the idea of a 'research script' that is, it follows the standard mode of research planning and design, data collection and analysis, and results writing. The volume contains 35 chapters, some co-authored by advanced graduate students who give their fellow students a touch of the 'real world' adding to the clarity and practicality of many chapters.

Das Education Research Center am M.I. T. (früher: Science Teaching Center) befaßt sich mit Verbesserungen des Lehrplanes, mit dem Lehr- und Lernprozeß sowie mit Unterrichtshilfen, vor allem für die unteren Semester. Das Center wurde im Jahre 1960 vom M.I. T. geschaffen. Sein erster Direktor war der verstorbene Professor Francis L. Friedman. Seit 1961 wurde das Center hauptsächlich von der National Science Foundation unterstützt; großzügige Hilfe wurde auch von den folgenden Fonds gewährt: Kettering Foundation, Shell Companies Foundation, Victoria Foundation, W. T. Grant Foundation und Bing Foundation. Die M.I.T.-Reihe: Einführung ist die Physik (Introductory Physics Series) ist ein direktes Resultat der Arbeit des Centers. Die Reihe wird aus einer Anzahl kurzgefaßter Einführungswerke bestehen, die die wichtigsten Gebiete der Physik behandeln werden. Es soll dabei der wechselseitige Einfluß von Experiment und Intuition bei der Aufstellung physikalischer Theorien betont werden. Die Bücher der Reihe sind als Grundlage für eine Auswahl von Einflihrungskursen gedacht, beginnend mit den Werken, in denen vor allem die klassische Physik behandelt wird, bis zu jenen, dieThemen der Atom- und Quantenphysik behandeln. Die einzelnen Bände sollen in Niveau und Behandlungsweise ihrer Themen zwar ein heitlich sein, sind jedoch nicht als untrennbare Einheit anzusehen; im Gegenteil. Eswurde getrachtet, daß jedes Buch in vernünftigem Maße eine Einheit für sich ist und als individuelle Komponente in den Aufbau eines Kurses einbezogen werden kann .
