General Chemistry: The Essential Concepts

General Chemistry: The Essential Concepts

by Raymond Chang (Author), Kenneth Goldsby (Author)
Price:  $185.35

Technical Details | Add To Wishlist | All Customer Reviews

The seventh edition of General Chemistry continues the tradition of presenting only the material that is essential for a one-year general chemistry course. It strikes a balance between theory and application by incorporating real-world examples; helping students visualize the three-dimensional atomic and molecular structures that are the basis of chemical activity; and developing problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Although the seventh edition incorporates many impressive features, such as conceptual idea review, animations correlated to the text, and hand-sketched worked examples, General Chemistry is still 200 to 300 pages shorter and much less expensive than other two-semester textbooks. Dr. Chang and Dr. Goldsby’ concise-but-thorough approach will appeal to efficiency-minded instructors and value-conscious students.



Experimental Physical Chemistry: A Laboratory Textbook

Experimental Physical Chemistry: A Laboratory Textbook

by Arthur Halpern (Author), George McBane (Author)

Technical Details | Add To Wishlist | All Customer Reviews

Appropriate for junior-level courses, the modernized new edition of Halpern and McBane’s physical chemistry lab manual offers an exceptional variety of tested and proven experiments—as well as detailed theoretical background material and clearly stated procedural objectives to help students understand the context and purpose of each procedure.  The manual is well suited to accompany Atkins/de Paula, Physical Chemistry, Eighth Edition, but it works equally well as a stand-alone manual or with any other text.
 
In addition, the labs represent challenging, quantitative determinations of   properties that can be checked against literature values; and, in many cases, they demonstrate the advantages that the computer offers in data  acquisition, data analysis, and also in the computation of physical chemical properties.

Chemistry: Atoms First

Chemistry: Atoms First

by Julia Burdge (Author), Jason Overby (Author)
Price:  $213.85

Technical Details | Add To Wishlist | All Customer Reviews

The atoms first approach provides a consistent and logical method for teaching general chemistry. This approach starts with the fundamental building block of matter, the atom, and uses it as the stepping stone to understanding more complex chemistry topics. Once mastery of the nature of atoms and electrons is achieved, the formation and properties of compounds are developed. Only after the study of matter and the atom will students have sufficient background to fully engage in topics such as stoichiometry, kinetics, equilibrium, and thermodynamics. Thus, the Atoms First method empowers instructors to present the most complete and compelling story of general chemistry. Far from a simple re-ordering of topics, this is a book that will truly meet the needs of the growing atoms-first market.
