Summary: More than three million readers have learned the basics of chemistry using a book by Morris Hein. The book's friendly format and writing style moves the reader slowly and patiently through the course. It is designed for those who have avoided taking chemistry in the past, and have limited mathematics background.Edition/Copyright: 10TH 00
Hein, Morris : Mt. San Antonio College
Morris Hein is professor emeritus of chemistry at Mt. San Antonio College, where he regularly taught the preparatory chemistry course and organic chemistry. He is the original author of Foundations of College Chemistry and his name has become synonymous with clarity, meticulous accuracy, and a step-by-step approach that students can follow. Over the years, more than three million students have learned chemistry using a text by Morris Hein. In addition to Foundations of College Chemistry, Eleventh Edition, he is co-author of Introduction to General, Organic, and Biochemistry, Seventh Edition, and Introduction to Organic and Biochemistry. He is also co-author of Foundations of Chemistry in the Laboratory, Eleventh Edition, and Introduction to General, Organic and Biochemistry in the Laboratory, Seventh Edition.
Susan Arena has taught chemistry to students at many levels including middle school, high school, community college and most recently at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. She especially focuses on using active learning techniques to improve the understanding of concepts in chemistry. Susan currently authors chemistry texts and electronic media, and presents workshops for teachers in using active learning and electronic media to teach chemistry. She collaborated with Morris Hein on the seventh edition of Foundations of College Chemistry and became a co-author on the eighth edition. She is also a co-author of Introduction to General, Organic, and Biochemistry, Seventh Edition.
"We have been very satisfied with the Hein text and our students frequently say, 'this is a great textbook, I love it. . . . Problems are generally very good. I like the paired exercises. They are a great instructor resource. I have students telephone me when they get stuck on homework problems and I frequently help them solve the unassigned paired problem as an example."
--Thomas Everton, Ventura College
"Strengths of the book include: the ease with which the material can be acquired by the inexperienced student, the way the book is written and presented, the mathematical problem-solving techniques (dimensional analysis), and the breadth of the material at a manageable level for a one-semester course.
--Anthony A. Taylor, Santa Rosa Junior College
"We presently use the Hein text in our Chemistry 105 course for the allied health students. Love the book! . . . The writing is clear and concise and the book offers good explanations and worked out problems."
--Jerome Maas, Oakton Community College
"This book is clearly written and offers step-by-step problem solutions. Use of bold-print, margin notes, graphics, tables, and pictures, etc. provide visual aids to the students. The level of the material is a strength. As we use this text for students who may never had chemistry before, it seems to be comprehensible for 'beginners'-yet beneficial to people previously exposed to chemistry."
--Alan A. Gahr, Gordon College
