OWLv2 with Solutions Manual for Chemistry: Principles and Reactions 8th Edition

William L. Masterton, Cecile N. Hurley

  • Published

Overview

This latest edition of CHEMISTRY: PRINCIPLES AND REACTIONS takes students directly to the crux of chemistry's fundamental concepts and allows you to efficiently cover all topics found in a typical general chemistry book. Based on the authors' extensive teaching experience, the book includes rigorous graded and concept-driven examples, as well as examples that focus on molecular reasoning and understanding. The Eighth Edition features a new and innovative example format, new "talking labels" within artwork, 25% new or revised problems, "Chemistry: Beyond the Classroom" essays that highlight some of the most up-to-date uses of chemistry, and end-of-chapter questions and Key Concepts that correlate to OWLv2, the #1 online homework and tutorial system for chemistry.

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.

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 OWL will help them understand concepts and get a better grade.”
