Chemical Principles : The Quest for Insight / With CD-ROM - 99 edition

Chemical Principles : The Quest for Insight / With CD-ROM (ISBN10: 0716735962; ISBN13: 9780716735960)
ISBN13: 978-0716735960
ISBN10: 0716735962

Summary: Written for general chemistry courses, particularly Honors-level or accelerated courses, Chemical Principles helps students develop chemical insight by showing the connections between chemical principles and their applications, both in the laboratory and the world around us. Peter Atkins and Loretta Jones, authors of Chemistry: Molecules, Matter, and Change, 4/e, begin with a detailed picture of the atom and build toward chemistry's frontier, continually
demonstrating how to solve problems and encouraging students to question, reason, consider nature and matter, and think visually about the chemical concepts they learn. A tools-based CD-ROM designed to further equip students for chemical inquiry comes packaged with every text. It and the rest of the supplements package were developed exclusively for Chemical Principles.
  • The coverage begins with atoms: Atomic theory is covered first, then molecules, bulk matter, and emergent properties, permitting the authors to present equilibrium in terms of thermodynamics
  • Optional Foundation sections at the beginning of the book, review basic concepts, such as atoms, molecules, units, and mass relationships
  • Innovative, effectively used art including modern molecular graphics, frames from animations, and paired diagrams--all drawn by the author--helps students visualize chemical change, especially at the atomic level
  • Toolboxes summarize important calculation procedures, while Strategies sections within the Worked Examples show students how to approach and solve problems
  • "How do we do that?" boxes provide quantitative explanations for those who need help AND more complexity for those with strong math skills, giving professors their choice of coverage options
  • "What has this to do with...?" boxes connect the coverage to real-world contexts such as human health and the environment
  • "How Do we Know?" boxes introduce crucial experiments or experimental procedures on which our knowledge is based
  • Frontiers of Chemistry boxes explore the leading edge of chemical research--the problems in these boxes may make students active participants in the future of science
  • Major Techniques, a series of four-page sections throughout the book, describe and depict essential procedures for chemical investigation
  • Impact of Materials sections highlight the book's emphasis on applications of chemistry in materials science
  • Pedagogy includes clear statements of prerequisites at the beginning of each chapter, "The bottom line" statements summarizing important material, Self-tests within the text, the Toolboxes, and the worked examples (Self-test questions are paired--the first is answered immediately;and the second answered in the back of the book), and extensive end-of-chapter exercises
