About

Overview

Steven and Susan Zumdahl's CHEMISTRY 8e brings together the solid pedagogy, easy-to-use media, and interactive exercises that today's instructors need for their general chemistry course. Rather than rote memorization, CHEMISTRY emphasizes a thoughtful approach built on problem-solving. For the Eighth Edition, the authors have extended this approach by emphasizing problem-solving strategies within the Examples and throughout the text narrative. The text speaks directly to the student about how to approach and solve chemical problems—to learn to think like a chemist—so that they can apply the process of problem-solving to all aspects of their lives. Students are provided with the tools to become critical thinkers: to ask questions, to apply rules and develop models, and to evaluate the outcome. In addition, Steven and Susan Zumdahl crafted ChemWork, an online program included in CHEMISTRY'S technology package, to support their approach much as an instructor would offer support during office hours. ChemWork is just one of many study aids available with CHEMISTRY that supports the goals of the textbook—a strong emphasis on models, real world applications, and visual learning.

Features and Benefits

  • The program's step-by-step approach helps students master chemistry concepts more efficiently by using examples in the text paired with worked-out solutions. In addition, CHEMISTRY includes Margin Notes that provide problem-solving tips and reminders, Step boxes that highlight the main concepts in a section, and a range of end-of-chapter questions. Question formats consist of Discussion Questions, Exercises, integrative Challenge Problems, and comprehensive Marathon Problems that can be assigned for extra credit.
  • CHEMISTRY's unique organization covers equilibria and acid-base chemistry early, and delays coverage of atomic theory and bonding until the second half of the text. The text includes sections on Exact Treatment of Buffered Solutions (Chapter 8), Adiabatic Processes (Chapter 10), and Molecular, Rotational, Vibrational, Electronic, and Nuclear Magnetic Spectroscopy (Chapter 14). These sections provide more depth at a slightly more rigorous level.
  • All of the mathematical operations required for this text are conveniently described in an Appendix or are illustrated in worked-out examples. Knowledge of calculus is not required, and differential and integral notations, used only where absolutely necessary, are accompanied by explanations.
  • Problem-type end-of-chapter problems called Connecting to Biochemistry highlight organic and biological applications. Their structure allows instructors to quickly locate material that will be of particular interest to students in pre-medicine, biology, and other health-related fields.

What's New

  • New Problem-Solving Strategy boxes focus the student's attention on the very important process of problem solving, helping them learn to think like chemists.
  • "Chapter 3: Stoichiometry" contains a new section: "Learning to Solve Problems". This new section enables students to understand that thinking their way through a problem produces long-term and meaningful learning, rather than simply memorizing steps which are often quickly forgotten.
  • This edition introduces a series of questions into Chapters 3-6's Examples sections to again engage the students in the process of problem solving. This more active approach helps students think their way through the solution to the problem.
  • "Chapter 4: Types of Chemical Reactions and Solution Stoichiometry," now gives a more qualitative and intuitive method for balancing oxidation reduction equations that is based on oxidation states. The "half-reaction method for balancing oxidation-reduction reactions" was moved to "Chapter 18: Electrochemistry" in order to cover the more complicated equations later in the text.
  • In order to make Chapter 15 more manageable for students, the authors have split this chapter in two: "Chapter 15: Acid-Base Equilibrium" and "Chapter 16: Solubility and Complex Ion Equilibrium."
