About

Overview

Authors Moore and Stanitski, both winners of the ACS Pimentel Award in Chemical Education, infuse CHEMISTRY: THE MOLECULAR SCIENCE, Fifth Edition, with timely everyday applications that reveal chemistry as a lively and relevant subject that is fundamental to a broad range of disciplines such as engineering, biology, and environmental science. A revised, annotated art program emphasizes the three concept levels in a pedagogically sound approach to understanding molecules, concepts, and mathematical equations. Many of the book’s end-of-chapter questions are accompanied by interactive, assignable, online lessons in OWL—the #1 online learning system for chemistry. Engage your students in active study of chemistry with this text.

Features and Benefits

  • Instructive art reinforces conceptual understanding by presenting the three levels: macroscale, nanoscale, and symbolic. Extended use of in-figure captions reduces the need for running text, helps shorten the book, and helps students learn better.
  • Thorough, careful explanations of the important concepts and skills needed to apply chemistry to many different fields; important points are bulleted and in boldface type for quick review.
  • FOCUS ON PROBLEM SOLVING. An overall emphasis on the four-step problem-solving process (Analyze, Plan, Execute, and Check Result) provides students with a strategy that moves them away from merely memorizing algorithmic solutions to conceptual understanding.
  • EMPHASIS ON THREE CONCEPTUAL LEVELS OF CHEMISTRY. The authors emphasize the Macroscopic (laboratory or real-world phenomena), Nanoscale (particles: atoms, molecules, and ions), and Symbolic (chemical formulas and equations) conceptual levels of chemistry throughout the text.
  • ESTIMATION BOXES. Many chapters include boxes that pose a problem for which a rough calculation suffices. These boxes help students learn various means of approximation and further develop "reasonableness of answer" skills that are useful for calculator-less exams such as the MCAT.
  • A WEALTH OF EXAMPLES, PRACTICE PROBLEMS, AND EXERCISES. Designed to stimulate active thinking, encourage student participation, and refine understanding of concepts the book includes more examples, practice problems and exercises than are found in most similar textbooks.
  • Summary Problem at the end of each chapter shows relationships among many concepts from each chapter.
  • Intergrates organic chemistry, biochemistry, environmental chemistry, materials chemistry, and other areas that are important for society and where many jobs will be available.

What's New

  • The first five chapters of the previous edition have been condensed into three chapters. The new Chapter 1 includes material on the metric system, and significant figures (previously in Chapter 2) along with the periodic table coverage previously in Chapters 2 and 3. Chapter 2 now includes the material previously in Chapters 2 and 3. The approach to reactions in aqueous solution has been completely revised and content previous in Chapters 4 and 5 is consolidate into a new Chapter 3. Balancing chemical equations and three reaction types (precipitation; acid-base, and redox) are now discussed before quantitative treatments (reaction stoichiometry, solution concentrations and solution stoichiometry/titrations) in Chapter 3.
  • Partly due to consolidating changes cited above, the book has been reduced to 20 chapters instead of 22 previously.
  • Revised all Problem-Solving Examples (PSEs) to a four-step Analyze, Plan, Execute, and Check Result format. Problem-solving strategy is clearly delineated in Chapter 1 where students are provided a study strategy for problem solving examples.
  • Each CO photo has an associated caption that raises chemistry-based questions that are then answered within the chapter. Specific chapter sections are noted with the questions.
  • Made much greater use of annotations ("balloons") that are incorporated into award-winning illustrations; this pedagogically sound practice reduces the need for running text, helps shorten the book, and helps students learn better.
  • The variety, comprehensiveness, and conceptual level of chapter-end Questions for Review and Thought (QRTs) have been expanded.
  • There are many new chapter-end Questions for Review and Thought (QRTs).
  • Aligned QRTs for each chapter with the end-of-chapter summary Having Studied… objectives based on Bloom's Taxonomy of Learning Objectives.
  • Assessed each QRT based on Bloom's Taxonomy to insure adequate numbers of questions for each taxonomic category. New QRTs written to insure meeting this number.
  • Summary Problems at the end of each chapter help students learn and integrate chapter concepts and provide good study aids for exams. Many Summary Problems are entirely new and all have been edited and improved.
  • The #1 online homework and learning system for chemistry, OWLv2, is available for this text--now with new instructor features and enhanced functionality: a Dashboard that consolidates all course materials; easy, intuitive assignment creation and management; ability to preview and select activities/questions for each assignment; new assignment settings and options; improved gradebook; Personalized Study tools to help students focus their time on the key concepts and skills; and MindTap Reader™, a new eBook with apps and embedded video, audio, annotations, and activities. OWLv2 courses for Gen Chem, GOB, and Liberal Arts now include Quick Prep essential skills assignments that can be taken before the semester begins or during the first few weeks, to help students succeed in the course. For this course, OWLv2 also includes new interactive versions of the end-of-chapter questions from the text and new iPad-compatible visualizations, tutorials, and simulations.
