About This PDF
This series has been developed for the teaching of forensic chemistry, and to provide a forensic context for teaching applications of basic analytical chemistry concepts. This downloadable PDF resource requires no previous knowledge of forensic chemistry. Students will discover that forensic science is the application of scientific method to the law.
Forensic scientists examine and analyse items and materials gathered from a crime scene, suspect or victim with the aim of providing information to assist a criminal investigation. Forensic chemists analyse the chemical substances gathered, using a variety of tests and equipment. Some units are self contained, while others involve practical experiments and exercises.
Use this downloadable PDF resource supplement your existing resources, to extend student capabilities, for revision purposes, or for class work when the regular teacher is absent.
