CHEM delivers exactly what today's students need --and want. Based on student and faculty feedback from nationwide interviews and focus groups, CHEM was developed through a "student-tested, faculty-approved" process. The result is a concise, engaging, and accessible textbook that presents the basic chemical principles faculty require within a framework of relevant, real world applications that liberal arts students can relate to. Delivered at a value price, CHEM accommodates the diverse lifestyles of today's learners, features a modern, open page design, and includes a wide array of print and online learning aids, including chapter-by-chapter study cards, self-quizzes, interactive flash cards, Go Chemistry and Thinkwell mini-video lectures, and online homework available through the OWL learning system.
- Shorter, comprehensive chapters in a modern design, along with a wealth of print and online teaching and learning aids, make this book ideal for today's students.
- Detachable "Chapter in Review" cards give students a portable study tool packed with pertinent information they can use to prepare for class.
- Detachable "Instructor Prep" cards make class prep quick and easy and include a quick map of chapter content, a list of corresponding PowerPoint and video resources, additional examples, and suggested assignments and discussion questions.
- Learning tools designed to meet a wide range of learning styles include interactive quizzes, animations, videos, interactive and printable flashcards, and additional essays.
- Relevant, real- life applications feature such topics as the nutritional basis of healthy living, medicines and drugs, pollution & the conservation of natural resources, and the agricultural production of food for an ever-expanding world population.
