About

Overview

The Zumdahls' hallmark problem-solving approach and focus on conceptual development come to life in this new edition with interactive problems that promote active learning and visualization. Enhanced by a wealth of online support that is seamlessly integrated with the program, Chemistry's solid explanations, emphasis on modeling, and outstanding problem sets make both teaching and learning chemistry more meaningful and accessible than ever before. The authors emphasize a qualitative approach to chemistry in both the text and the technology program before quantitative problems are considered, helping to build comprehension. The emphasis on modeling throughout the narrative addresses the problem of rote memorization by helping students to better understand and appreciate the process of scientific development. By stressing the limitations and uses of scientific models, the authors show students how chemists think and work.

Features and Benefits

  • The Interactive Tutorials introduce and reinforce chemical concepts through a variety of techniques, including animated demonstrations, hands-on interactive activities, interspersed practice questions to test understanding, concept summaries, and a post quiz. Students are able to review core concepts in a fun and interactive manner as they prepare for classroom discussions and exams.
  • Reality Checks appear after the Solution to selected Worked-out Examples throughout the text, prompting students to think critically and to determine if their answer reasonable.
  • For Review sections include key concepts for the chapter as well as review questions.
  • A wealth of end-of-chapter questions reinforce conceptual understanding and sharpen problem-solving skills: collaborative Active Learning Questions (formerly In-Class Discussion Questions); Exercises organized by topic and Additional Exercises not keyed by topic; integrative Challenge Problems; comprehensive Marathon Problems; and new Integrative Problems that integrate multiple concepts from previous chapters.
  • Real-world applications of chemistry appear throughout the narrative, in exercises and in Chemical Impact features to help motivate students to learn the material.
  • Visualization is enhanced by an up-to-date art program that includes electrostatic potential maps and molecular-level illustrations of key concepts that help students connect microscale activity to macroscale phenomena.
