Master chemistry with the clear explanations, problem-solving strategies, and dynamic learning tools of CHEMISTRY & CHEMICAL REACTIVITY, 8e. Combining thorough instruction with the powerful multimedia tools you need to develop a deeper understanding of general chemistry concepts, the text clearly emphasizes the visual nature of chemistry, illustrating the close interrelationship of the macroscopic, symbolic, and particulate levels of chemistry. The art program illustrates each of the three levels in engaging detail--and is fully integrated with new key media components. Now featuring strong coverage of green/sustainable chemistry, this edition helps you every step of the way to build your problem-solving skills through easy-to-understand worked problems, new problem strategy maps, new Review & Check problems, and more. GO CHEMISTRY includes mini video lectures and e-flash cards keyed to topics in the text for quick, on-the-go review--ideal for use on video iPods/iPhones, MP3 players, and iTunes.
