  • 800 Pages

Overview

Masterton/Hurley/Neth's CHEMISTRY: PRINCIPLES AND REACTIONS, 7e, takes students directly to the crux of chemistry's fundamental concepts and allows you to efficiently cover all topics found in the typical general chemistry book. Based on the authors' extensive teaching experience, this updated edition includes new concept-driven, rigorous examples, updated examples that focus on molecular reasoning and understanding, and "Chemistry: Beyond the Classroom" essays that demonstrate the relevance of the concepts and highlight some of the most up-to-date uses of chemistry. A strong, enhanced art program assists students in visualizing chemical concepts. Integrated end-of-chapter questions and Key Concepts correlate to OWL Online Learning, the #1 online homework and tutorial system for chemistry. OWL also includes an interactive eBook for the 7th edition of the textbook and an optional ebook for the Student Study Guide.

William L. Masterton, University of Connecticut, Emeritus

William L. Masterton received his PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Illinois in 1953. Two years later he began to work at the University of Connecticut, where he taught general chemistry and a graduate course in chemical thermodynamics. He has received numerous teaching awards, including an award from the Student Senate at the University of Connecticut, of which he was most proud. Dr. Masterton is co-author of the all-time best-selling general chemistry textbook CHEMICAL PRINCIPLES, which has sold well over 1.5 million copies. Dr. Masterton's field of research, solution thermodynamics, prepared him well for making maple syrup each March at the family farmhouse in New Hampshire.

Cecile N. Hurley, University of Connecticut

Cecile Nespral Hurley received her MS at the University of California, Los Angeles. Since 1979, she has served as Lecturer and Coordinator of Freshman Chemistry at the University of Connecticut, where she directed a groundbreaking National Science Foundation-supported project on cooperative learning in general chemistry. She is one of a prestigious group of University Teaching Fellows who are selected by their fellow faculty members as models of teaching excellence and dedication. In addition, she coordinates the High School Cooperative Program in Chemistry through which superior Connecticut high school students take the university's general chemistry course at their schools. In her spare time, Professor Hurley roots for the University of Connecticut women's basketball Huskies--and roots out weeds from her country garden, which she likes to imagine rivals Monet's at Giverny.

Edward Neth, University of Connecticut

Native of Bridgeport, Connecticut B.S. Chemistry, Fairfield University; minor in Politics M.S. and Ph.D., Inorganic Chemistry, University of Connecticut; Advisor: Dr. Steven L. Suib TA supervisor was Cecile Hurley Career diversion (1999-2004) from chemistry/teaching to information technology as a network engineer for Priceline.com and Director of Academic Computing at the University of New Haven (Connecticut). Since 2004, Lecturer, Chemistry at UConn; also the Department's webmaster and IT administrator; serves on University committees for technology planning and implementation.

  • REORGANIZATION: The authors have reorganized Chapters 13, 15, and 19 to create a better flow from single to multiple equilibria. In addition, Chapters 2-5 have been reorganized to enhance student understanding and mirror the way this material is presented in the classroom.
  • NEW CHAPTER 15: This new chapter covers complex ion and precipitation equilibria to enhance the book's coverage.
  • NEW END-OF-CHAPTER PROBLEMS/QUESTIONS: Approximately 25% of the book's end- of-chapter problems and questions are new.
  • REVISED VISUALS FOR BETTER CLARITY: Ensure your students' understanding of concepts as this edition moves relevant text from captions to talking labels within the art for a clearer presentation of visual images. Contemporary photographs, modern molecular models, and new concept flow charts help further clarify key concepts.
  • NEW AND INNOVATIVE EXAMPLE FORMAT--ONE/TWO COLUMN COMBO: Revised examples provide rigorous practice and opportunities to apply concepts. Each Example begins with a problem statement followed by three problem-solving steps: 1) Analysis (two columns), 2) Strategy (one column), and 3) Solution (two column). This innovative new worked Example format presentation is clear, consistent, and easy to follow. Each example concludes with an End Point, which provides additional insight into the problem.
  • REVISED GRADED AND CONCEPTUAL EXAMPLES: Revised in-text Graded Examples now show the gradual increase in difficulty as problems progress from Step "a" to Step "c." The Graded Examples simulate the presentation of problems on a test. Additional Conceptual Examples lead students through conceptualizing the chemistry principles just discussed and demonstrate how to refine thinking skills at critical points in the chapter.
  • MOLECULAR MODEL ART PROGRAM: Effective models visually reinforce students' conceptual understanding. Revised nanoscale views of atoms, molecules, and ions use molecular modeling software and an exacting three-dimensional style to offer effective visual learning tools throughout the text.
  • ABUNDANT IN-TEXT EXAMPLES: More than 115 in-text Graded Examples challenge students to solve more difficult material as they proceed through each step of the example. Additional Conceptual Examples lead students through conceptualizing the chemistry principles just discussed before solving the example and encourage higher-order thinking at critical points within the chapter's narrative.
  • SUMMARY PROBLEMS: This popular feature connects all concepts covered in the chapter, providing students with important overview and context for learning. Multi-step Summary Problems summarize each chapter, covering all or almost all of the chapter's key concepts.
  • "CHEMISTRY: THE HUMAN SIDE" BOXES: These boxes include short biographies of some of the pioneers of chemistry, ranging from Antoine Lavoisier (1748-1794) to Glenn Seaborg (1912-1999). These engaging sketches captivate students' attention as they emphasize the personalities as well as the accomplishments of these individuals.
  • MARGINAL NOTES: Short margin notes sprinkled throughout the text draw attention to important points and highlight current research in chemistry. Chapter Highlights at the end of each chapter briefly review the chapter's material. Key Concepts introduce each chapter and are indexed to corresponding examples and end-of-chapter problems.
  • GO CHEMISTRY: Go Chemistry: Mini video lectures are ideal for helping on-the-go students review essential chemistry topics. Mini video lectures include animations and problems for a quick summary of key concepts. Selected videos have e-flashcards that briefly introduce a key concept and then test students' understanding of the basics. Keyed to topics in the text, Go Chemistry plays on iTunes, video iPods/iPhones, other personal video players, and QuickTime. OWL includes five videos. Students can purchase Go Chemistry as a 27-video set or as individual videos.
  • CONNECTION TO FINE ARTS: This edition connects the hard science of chemistry to the humanities and fine arts through chapter openers and literary quotations that enhance each chapter's content.
  • LATEST WORK FROM SPECIALISTS: Guest authors and leaders in specialized fields profile the latest research in "Chemistry: Beyond the Classroom" boxes. Students see the relevance of concepts in some of the most current work in chemistry, including photochromic and thermochromic materials, coloration biological organisms, molecular structure of rubbery materials, and fuel cells.
  • STRONG COVERAGE OF ORGANIC CHEMISTRY: Students leave your course well equipped with organic chemistry skills through coverage of nomenclature and a greater number of functional groups, as well as coverage of types of organic reactions and material on proteins and carbohydrates.
