Chemistry / With CD-ROM - 4th edition

Chemistry / With CD-ROM (ISBN10: 0716735954; ISBN13: 9780716735953)
ISBN13: 978-0716735953
ISBN10: 0716735954

Summary: As authors, Loretta Jones and Peter Atkins set their sights on teaching students how to see the world in chemical terms. Their books are designed to help students:
  • see everyday objects--a flower, a rock--as three-dimensional molecular structures (visualization)
  • quantify with numbers and equations what happens when a reaction such as bringing water to boil occurs (problem solving)
  • understand wh
    at chemistry reveals about various aspects of everyday life, such as a visit to a drugstore (applications).
The new edition of Chemistry: Molecules, Matter, and Change is the most effective yet at helping students develop their visualization and problem solving skills, and showing the practical impact of chemical understanding on the way we live. The change in the author order on the book (Jones before Atkins) reflects the growing emphasis on connecting the concepts of visualization, problem solving, and applications in the classroom; a number of new features in the text work specifically to strengthen the emphasis on these three crucial concepts. Accompanying the text is a complete, media-enhanced supplements package.
  • Jones, a chemical educator, is a pioneer in using visualization, collaborative learning, and technology in the classroom; Atkins is one of the world's foremost chemistry writers, researchers, and educators
  • Problem-solving approach teaches students to think like chemists
  • Vivid illustrations help students visualize molecules as a chemist would
  • Focus on applications shows students the practical relevance of what they are learning
Visualization
  • New macro/micro figures combining photography, molecular art, and in many cases, symbols, which reveal the connections between the observed, the molecular, and the symbolic levels
  • New illustrations in the "Toolboxes" providing visual summaries for complex, multistep processes, enhancing the connections between concepts and their application in problem-solving
  • Cutting-edge graphics, including new electron density diagrams, photorealistic images (particularly of crystal structures), and images of biological macromolecules
  • Sequence diagrams depicting processes frame by frame (now with insets focusing on main events as they unfold)
Problem-Solving
  • Dozens more Worked Examples, some conceptual, some where students work with molecular models
  • Over twice as many Toolboxes, each now beginning with explicit statements of that Toolbox's application, conceptual basis, and procedural steps, and concluding with a summary of the conceptual basis and the procedure.
  • Thoroughly revised exercise sets, including new applied exercises and chapter integration exercises
Applications
  • New Applying Chemistry cases with exercises in each chapter, with additional, end-of-chapter exercises focusing on the cases
  • New Connections comprehensive case studies in the interchapters, referring to material from several chapters and featuring new and interesting applications--assignments with these case studies make use of the text's CD-ROM and Web site
  • New Investingating Matter boxes on techniques, equipment, and other special topics, showing students how chemistry is really done in the laboratory
  • New Analogies, brief illustrated callouts putting new ideas in familiar contexts
  • "Chemistry at Work captioned photos begin each chapter, showing students an intriguing application of the chemistry they are about to encounter
  • Chapter openings that suggest the purpose of the concepts to come by raising observations and applications of current interest
