Begins each chapte morer with a countdown that consist of five review questions from previously covered material. the countdowns tie together various chapters and allow students to review earlier material Provides a short essay at the end of each chapter called either Compound or Element that focuses on substances already familiar to students and shows how chemistry plays a role in everyday life.

Adds a new appendix called Your Calculator to provide easy-to-understand instructions on proper use of this tool.

Focuses on building problem-solving skills. in-chapter examples are paired with practice exercises to reinforce concepts immediately after they are learned
includes tasks and objectives at the beginning of each chapter that are keyed to text examples, exercises, and problems (general problems are not grouped by section and require comprehension of several topics)
