Loose Leaf for Chemistry 5th Edition
Welcome to the exciting and dynamic world of Chemistry! My desire to create a general chemistry textbook grew out of my concern for the interests of students and faculty alike. Having taught general chemistry for many years, and having helped new teachers and future faculty develop the skills necessary to teach general chemistry, I believe I have developed a distinct perspective on the common problems and misunderstandings that students encounter while learning the fundamental concepts of chemistryâ€”and that professors encounter while teaching them. I believe that it is possible for a textbook to address many of these issues while conveying the wonder and possibilities that chemistry offers. With this in mind, I have tried to write a text that balances the necessary fundamental concepts with engaging real-life examples and applications, while utilizing a consistent, step-by-step problem-solving approach and an innovative art and media program.
Each Sample Problem is followed by my ABC approach of three Practice Problems: Attempt, Build, and Conceptualize.
Practice Problem A (or â€œAttemptâ€) asks the student to apply the same Strategy to solve a problem very similar to the Sample Problem. In general, the same Setup and series of steps in the Solution can be used to solve Practice Problem A.
Practice Problem B (or â€œBuildâ€) assesses mastery of the same skills as those required for the Sample Problem and Practice Problem A, but everywhere possible; Practice Problem B cannot be solved using the same Strategy used for the Sample Problem and for Practice Problem A. This provides the student an opportunity to develop a strategy independently, and combats the tendency that some students have to want to apply a â€œtemplateâ€ approach to solving chemistry problems. Practice Problems â€œAttemptâ€ and â€œBuildâ€ have been incorporated into the problems available in Connect (R) and can be used in online homework and/or quizzing.
Practice Problem C (or â€œConceptualizeâ€) provides an exercise that probes the studentâ€™s conceptual understanding of the material. Practice Problems C often include concept and molecular art.
Each chapterâ€™s end-of-chapter questions and problems begin with an Integrative Problem, titled Applying What Youâ€™ve Learned. These integrative problems incorporate multiple concepts from the chapter, with each step of the problem providing a specific reference to the appropriate Sample Problem in case the student needs direction.
Newly located immediately before the end-of-chapter problems, Key Skills pages are modules that provide a review of specific problem-solving techniques from that particular chapter. These are techniques the author knows are vital to success in later chapters. The Key Skills pages are designed to be easy for students to find touchstones to hone specific skills from earlier chaptersâ€”in the context of later chapters. The answers to the Key Skills Problems can be found in the Answer Appendix in the back of the book.
