Summary

This book is vintage John Hill -- accessible, interesting, and written at a level and pace that is ideal for the needs of the beginning chemistry student. The authors seamlessly weave lively chemical applications into the text, continually showing chemistry in context. While suitable for most Introductory Chemistry courses, the topics and examples focus in particular on the needs of students in allied health and the life sciences.

A highly relevant presentation of chemistry brings the science to life.

Short boxed application essays and numerous examples illustrate the essential principles of chemistry as they apply to such topics as the human body, health, lifestyles, sports, medicine, and the environment. Pg. 21, 180, 230, 297, 732.

Interesting newsworthy topics such as acid rain, the greenhouse effect, anabolic steroids, designer drugs and AIDS inspire students to study the subject matter. A wealth of NEW topics have been added to this edition including osteoporosis, p. 301, chromium supplements, p. 314, arteriosclerosis, p. 530. lead poisoning, p. 589, blood doping, p. 767, hemophilia, p. 774, and cancer risks, p. 667.

Using life as a unifying theme, the text cohesively bridges the general, organic and biological subject areas. Pg. 160, 183, 254-255, 302-303.

Eleven Special Topics in optional mini-chapters cover such diverse areas as electrolytes, sight and odor, digestion, drugs, petroleum, and hormones. These sections allow the instructor greater flexibility to expand on particular concepts as needed. Pg. 357, 436, 461, 497, 619.

NEW The New York Times Themes of the Times. This collection of timely articles from the NY Times further demonstrates the vital, ongoing connection between what's learned in the classroom and what's happening in the world today. An accessible and engaging writing style captures the student's attention.

The text's clear exposition motivates students to learn concepts and takes care to build confidence before moving on to study more difficult chemical principles. See: LeChatelier's Principle, pp. 137-138, Polymerization pp. 341-343, The Peptide Bond, pp. 570-571. Useful and extensive pedagogy aids student learning.

Key points and margin notes reinforce topics.

NEW Key terms are boldface in the text and complied just after the summary. Pg. 662

NEW Summary feature reinforces important concepts from the chapter. Pg. 661.

NEW End-of-chapter exercises are reorganized and categorized into two types: review questions stress writing and/or discussion of solutions; drill/review problems are grouped by subject in matched pairs. Pg. ix-x, 140-143, 592-594. To appeal to today's more visual learner, the illustration program has been completely re-rendered.

Increased use of molecular art illustrates the particulate nature of matter. Pg. 8, 285, 534, 640.

Over 40 pieces of art have been added. All illustrations have been updated. The biochemistry chapters are updated to include new developments in this rapidly advancing area of science.

Applications in these chapters feature a wide variety of areas including lead poisoning, p. 589, development of cancer, p. 669, diabetes,, p. 683, blood types, p. 769. and hemophilia. p. 774.
