Spencer L. Seager, Weber State University

Spencer L. Seager retired from Weber State University in 2013 after serving for 52 years as a faculty member of the chemistry department. He served as department chairman from 1969 until 1993 and taught general and physical chemistry at the university. Dr. Seager was also active in projects designed to help improve chemistry and other science education in local elementary schools. He received his B.S. in chemistry and Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Utah. He currently serves as an adjunct professor at Weber State and the University of South Dakota, where he teaches online courses in general chemistry, elementary organic chemistry, and elementary biochemistry.

OWLv2 results in Mastery, Not Memorization

OWLv2’s Mastery Learning activities let students work at their own pace until they mastery the concept.

“It gives you a warning if there may be an incorrect submission so you have a chance to recheck before you submit answer. If you get the question wrong, it explains the solution in detail so that you can still continue to learn.”

"During class lectures, you’re given the information but not how to use it. With chemistry it’s all about practice, and OWLv2 gives you so many options to learn and use the content.”

“It breaks down the problems into steps that make it easy to learn the concepts.”

“I like that it really breaks down the chapter in terms of the basic concepts, then there are separate questions that involve applying the concepts and theories in order to solve the problems. It provides a really great learning structure for grasping new material.”

“The mastery questions are awesome. They are set up so you can’t just look at them and apply a formula. They force students to go beyond the foundational concepts and really tap into higher-level thinking.”

“If you hold students accountable, they realize OWLv2 will help them understand concepts and get a better grade.”

Cengage provides a range of supplements that are updated in coordination with the main title selection. For more information about these supplements, contact your Learning Consultant.

FOR INSTRUCTORS

Online Instructor's Manual

ISBN: 9781305968660

Study Guide with Student Solutions Manual

ISBN: 9781305968608
The Study Guide and Student Solutions Manual tests students on the learning objectives in each chapter and provides answers to all of the even-numbered end-of-chapter exercises. Additional Activities include specific questions for each section as well as a summary activity. Each chapter is rounded out with a Self Test with answers.

Safety Scale Laboratory Experiments

ISBN: 9781305968554
This proven lab manual offers a unique blend of laboratory skills and exercises that effectively illustrate concepts from the main text, CHEMISTRY FOR TODAY: GENERAL, ORGANIC, AND BIOCHEMISTRY, 8th and 9th Editions. The book's 15 general chemistry and 20 organic/biochemistry safety-scale laboratory experiments use small quantities of chemicals and emphasize safety and proper disposal of materials. 'Safety-scale' is the authors' own term for describing the amount of chemicals each lab experiment requires -- less than macroscale quantities, which are expensive and hazardous, and more than microscale quantities, which are difficult to work with and require special equipment.
