Overview

CHEMISTRY, 10th Edition, combines a robust conceptual framework, a readable and engaging writing style, and an unparalleled selection of problems and exercises. CHEMISTRY uses a thoughtful approach built on creative problem-solving techniques and critical thinking. An emphasis on modeling and interactive examples helps students learn how to approach and solve chemical problems -- to think like chemists -- so that they can apply the process of problem solving to all aspects of their lives. Zumdahl and Zumdahl -- and new coauthor Don DeCoste -- give students the tools they need to become critical thinkers: solve problems, apply chemical theories, and evaluate outcomes.

Steven S. Zumdahl, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Steve Zumdahl is the author of market-leading textbooks in introductory chemistry, general chemistry, honors-level chemistry, and high school chemistry. Recently retired from his long-time position as Director of Undergraduate Programs at the University of Illinois, he has received numerous awards for his contributions to chemical education. These include the National Catalyst Award in recognition of his contribution to chemical education, the University of Illinois Teaching Award, the UIUC Liberal Arts and Sciences Advising Award, and the School of Chemical Sciences Teaching Award (five times). He earned his B.S. in Chemistry from Wheaton College (IL), and his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois.

Susan A. Zumdahl, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Susan A. Zumdahl earned a B.S. and M.A. in Chemistry at California State University--Fullerton. She has taught science and mathematics at all levels, including middle school, high school, community college, and university. She is past director of the Merit Program for Emerging Scholars in Chemistry at the University of Illinois. In addition, she spearheaded the development of a sophisticated web-based electronic homework system for chemistry and is co-author on several chemistry textbooks.

Donald J. DeCoste, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Donald J. DeCoste is Associate Director of General Chemistry at the University of Illinois, Urbana–Champaign and has been teaching chemistry at the high school and college levels for 26 years. He earned his BS in Chemistry and PhD from the University of Illinois, Urbana–Champaign. At UIUC he has developed chemistry courses for nonscience majors, preservice secondary teachers, and preservice elementary teachers. He teaches courses in introductory chemistry and the teaching of chemistry and has received the School of Chemical Sciences Teaching Award four times. Don has led workshops for secondary teachers and graduate student teaching assistants, discussing the methods and benefits of getting students more actively involved in class. When not involved in teaching and advising, Don enjoys spending time with his wife and three children.

WebAssign is a flexible and fully customizable online instructional solution that puts powerful tools in the hands of teachers, enabling you to realize your teaching goals and instantly assess individual student performance to help students learn math, not just do online homework.

Created by teaching chemists, OWLv2 is a powerful online learning system for chemistry with a unique Mastery Learning approach, which allows students to practice at their own pace, receive meaningful feedback and access a variety of learning resources to help them master chemistry and achieve better grades.

  • CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING: Conceptual learning and problem solving are fundamental to the approach of Chemistry. The text gives students the tools to become critical thinkers: to ask questions, to apply rules and models, and to evaluate the outcome.
  • PROBLEM-SOLVING: This text talks to the student about how to approach and solve chemical problems, since one of the main goals of general chemistry is to help students become creative problem solvers. The authors emphasize a thoughtful, logical approach rather than simply memorizing procedures.
  • DYNAMIC ART PROGRAM: Most of the glassware, orbitals, graphs, flowcharts, and molecules have been redrawn to better serve visual learners and enhance the textbook.
  • REAL-WORLD APPLICATIONS: Interesting applications of modern chemistry show students the relevance of chemistry to their world.
  • COMPREHENSIVE END-OF-CHAPTER PRACTICE AND REVIEW: This text offers end-of-chapter exercises for every type of student and for every kind of homework assignment, including an unparalleled variety of end-of-chapter content with problems that increase in rigor and integrate multiple concepts.
