About The Solution

Overview

Help your students succeed in chemistry with the clear explanations, problem-solving strategies, and dynamic study tools of CHEMISTRY & CHEMICAL REACTIVITY, 9e. The text emphasizes the visual nature of chemistry, illustrating the close interrelationship of the macroscopic, symbolic, and particulate levels of chemistry with an art program that illustrates each of these levels in engaging detail. Access to OWLv2 may be purchased separately or at a special price if packaged with this text. OWLv2 is an online homework and tutorial system that helps you maximize your study time and improve your success in the course. OWLv2 includes an interactive eBook, as well as hundreds of guided simulations, animations, and video clips.


Additional Product Information

Features/Benefits

  • WORKED EXAMPLES. Through the text's six-part worked example structure, students learn how to approach a problem rather than to memorize problem types and solution approaches. Worked example headers use the following structure: 1) A Problem statement; 2) A "What Do You Know?" section that asks students to outline what information they have and begin to think about a solution; 3) A Strategy section that combines the information available with the objective to devise a path to the solution; 4) A fully worked Solution; 5) A "Think About Your Answer" section that prompts students to ask if the answer is reasonable; 6) A "Check Your Understanding" problem similar to the example to confirm students understand.
  • PROBLEM STRATEGY MAPS. Selected worked examples have Strategy Maps that give students a visual view of the complete problem-solving strategy. Video Strategy Solutions based on these maps are integrated into the MindTap eBook.
  • REVIEW & CHECK PROBLEMS. These section-ending problems help students hone their skill in assessing whether they understand the concepts in the section.
  • VISUAL TOOLS. With the text's extensive use of molecular representations, your students can move beyond plugging numbers into an equation to a true understanding of what's going on at the molecular level. The authors consistently depict molecules in chemical equations and use unique space-filling molecular art that more completely tie the text's molecular art to problem solving and media.
  • CASE STUDY BOXES. Cases show students where chemistry has been used to solve a problem or where chemistry is important in everyday matters. Examples include the use of isotopes to catch athletes who cheat using illegal drugs, a washing machine that injects silver into the wash, acrylamide in French fries, a comparison of ethanol and gasoline, and the amount of salt in seawater. Questions posed in each Case Study are answered in an appendix.
  • "IN THE LABORATORY" QUESTIONS. These end-of-chapter questions address techniques used and work performed in the general chemistry laboratory to help students make the connection between lecture topics and lab work.
  • BEYOND THE EXAM. The text correlates Chapter Goals with Study Questions to help students develop a conceptual understanding of chemistry and a skill in problem-solving that will serve them long after their final exams.
  • OWL INTEGRATION. Improve student learning outcomes with OWLv2, the #1 online homework and learning system for chemistry, now with new features and enhanced functionality! Developed by chemistry instructors, OWLv2's reporting and grade book features simplify homework management and track student progress. OWLv2 addresses different student learning styles through tutorials, simulations, visualization exercises, and algorithmically generated homework questions with instant answer-specific feedback. With OWLv2's mastery learning approach, students work at their own pace until they understand each concept/skill. OWL includes MindTap Reader™, an iPad-compatible multimedia eBook. Gen Chemistry, GOB, and Liberal Arts courses include Quick Prep modules to help students learn essential skills.

What's New

  • The five topical interchapters in previous editions have been integrated into standard chapters: Milestones in the Development of Chemistry and the Modern World View of Atoms and Molecules have been folded into Chapter 2. The Chemistry of Fuels and Energy Resources and The Chemistry of the Environment have been incorporated into an expanded new chapter on Environmental Chemistry (Chapter 20). The Chemistry of Life: Biochemistry has been expanded into a full chapter (Chapter 24). The Chemistry of Modern Materials has been incorporated into the chapter on solids (Chapter 12).
  • Chapter Goals (and Chapter Goals Revisited) have been recast into three categories that most express what students should get out of the course: 1. Understand: chapter concepts. 2. Do: Be able to carry out calculations, draw molecular structures, and make chemical decisions. 3. Remember: important facts and chemical concepts.
  • All answers are now combined into a single comprehensive appendix organized by chapter.
  • Over 100 new end of chapter Study Questions have been added.
  • 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.

Educated at Washington and Lee University, as well as Cornell University, he held National Institutes of Health postdoctoral appointments at the University of Manchester Institute for Science and Technology in England and at Indiana University. Professor Kotz has co-authored three textbooks in several editions - INORGANIC CHEMISTRY, CHEMISTRY & CHEMICAL REACTIVITY, and THE CHEMICAL WORLD - along with the INTERACTIVE GENERAL CHEMISTRY CD-ROM. He also has published research on inorganic chemistry and electrochemistry. He was a Fulbright Lecturer and Research Scholar in Portugal in 1979 and a visiting professor there in 1992, as well as a visiting professor at the Institute for Chemical Education (University of Wisconsin, 1991-1992) and at Auckland University in New Zealand (1999). He also was an invited speaker at a meeting of the South African Chemical Society and at the biennial conference for secondary school chemistry teachers in New Zealand. In addition, a recent tenure as a mentor of the U.S. Chemistry Olympiad Team, Professor Kotz has received numerous honors, including a State University of New York Chancellor's Award (1979), a National Catalyst Award for Excellence in Teaching (1992), the Estee Lectureship in Chemical Education at the University of South Dakota (1998), the Visiting Scientist Award from the Western Connecticut Section of the American Chemical Society (1999), and the first annual Distinguished Education Award from the Binghamton (New York) Section of the American Chemical Society (2001).
