Summary

This new updated edition of CHEMISTRY: PRINCIPLES AND REACTIONS retains the same focus, providing students with the "core" material essential to understanding the principles of general chemistry - but now gives them a unique online assessment and learning tool through the General ChemistryNow web-based system. Topics in Organic Chemistry have also been expanded to provide material for those who want to include this coverage in their course. Masterton and Hurley cover the basics without sacrificing the essentials, appealing to several markets. Appropriate for either a one- or two-semester course, CHEMISTRY: PRINCIPLES AND REACTIONS, Fifth Edition is three hundred pages shorter than most general chemistry texts and lives up to its long-standing reputation as THE student-oriented text. Though this text is shorter in length than most other General Chemistry books, it is not lower in level, and with the addition of the large volume of content provided by the revolutionary GENERAL CHEMISTRY INTERACTIVE 3.0 CD-ROM, and, the addition of the new General ChemistryNow web-based program that is included with every copy, it has a depth and breath rivaling much longer books.


New to the Edition

  • In the updated edition, organic chemistry coverage has been increased (Chapter 22 is expanded and a new Chapter 23 has been added). Specifically, Chapter 22 now features increased coverage of nomenclature and the discussion uses a greater number of functional groups. A new section covers types of organic reactions. Chapter 23 presents new material on proteins and carbohydrates.
  • Added to the updated edition, General ChemistryNow, at http://now.brookscole.com/masterton5e is a web-based program, which is available with each new copy of the book at no extra charge. General ChemistryNow incorporates material from our original General Chemistry Interactive CD-ROM with more than a hundred new media modules and exercises. It includes pre-tests, personalized learning plan, post-tests and more. Students will notice annotations in the textbook referring them to the General ChemistryNow program.
  • Included through General ChemistryNow is vMentor. vMentor offers text-specific one-to-one online tutoring help with a subject area expert who has a copy of the text. vMentor features two-way audio, an interactive whiteboard for displaying presentation materials, and instant messaging. With vMentor, students interact with the tutor and other students using standard Windows® or Macintosh® microphones and speakers. Students can only access vMentor through the General ChemistryNow program.
  • Included with the text is a version of the General Chemistry Interactive CD-ROM (Version 3.0) specifically organized to match the topic order of CHEMISTRY: PRINCIPLES AND REACTIONS, Fifth Edition. Included on the CD are, tutorials, guided simulations, and media-based exercises. This dynamic and proven tool enhances student learning and efficiency by directly leading them to think and explore through interactive computer-based exercises.
  • The molecular model art program was revised for the fifth edition to visually reinforce students' conceptual understanding. Many figures in the art and photo program have been thoroughly revised for this edition. The nanoscale views of atoms, molecules, and ions have been completely revised using molecular modeling software and an exacting three-dimensional style. One of the key elements of the revised photo program is to illustrate more clearly sequences of events in a reaction or a chemical analysis.
  • The Fifth Edition features 115 new in-text "Examples" including two types new to the text "Graded" and "Conceptual." "Graded" examples make students solve more difficult material as they proceed through each step of the Example. "Conceptual" examples lead students into conceptualizing the chemistry principles just discussed before solving the Example, directing them do more higher-order thinking at critical points in the chapter narrative.
  • Updated and new "Chemistry: Beyond the Classroom" features in the fifth edition are designed to convince students that chemistry is so relevant to their lives that it worth devoting the time and effort required to master key principles. Five of the 22 Chemistry: Beyond the Classroom boxes are new; 6 have been updated or revised with new material.
  • The Fifth Edition presents over 450 new end-of-chapter problems plus added new Conceptual Problems.
  • All of the popular Summary Problems features, which tie together all the concepts covered in a chapter helping the student see the forest as well as the trees, have been re-worked for the Fifth Edition.
  • This edition is supported by an expanded ancillary package that includes the OWL (Online Web-based Learning System) homework system, WebTutor Advantage on WebCT/Blackboard, and vMentor which offers text-specific one-to-one online tutoring help with a subject area expert who has a copy of CHEMISTRY: PRINCIPLES AND REACTIONS.


Features

  • Throughout the text, short biographies of some of the pioneers of chemistry, referred to as "Chemistry: The Human Side," range from Antoine Lavoisier (1748-1794) to Glenn Seaborg (1912-1999). These sketches emphasize the personalities as well as the accomplishments of these individuals.
  • Most examples contain a Strategy statement, which describes the reasoning behind the Solution.
  • Many examples end with a Reality Check, which encourages students to check whether the answer makes sense.
  • Margin Notes: Sprinkled throughout the text are a number of short notes that have been placed in the margin to make important points or highlight current research in chemistry.
  • Chapter Highlights: At the end of each chapter, you will find a brief review of the material covered in that chapter.
  • Key Concepts are introduced in the chapter. These are indexed to the corresponding examples and end-of-chapter problems.
  • Key Equations and Key Terms in the chapter.
  • Each chapter is summarized by a multi-step Summary Problem that covers all or nearly all of the key concepts in the chapter.
  • A set of questions and problems concludes each chapter. Most of these are classified, that is, grouped by type under a particular heading. The classified problems are in matched pairs.
