Long known for its superior problem-solving pedagogy and engaging narrative style, the new edition of Introductory Chemistry: A Foundation offers unparalleled instructor and student support. This best-selling text motivates students and maintains their interest in the material by connecting chemistry to real-life experiences and emphasizing visual learning with figures that illustrate concepts and photos that depict chemical phenomena and connect chemistry with the real world.The text helps students develop the problem-solving skills so critical to success in chemistry by teaching a thoughtful step-by-step approach to solving problems, rather than teaching them, prematurely, to use algorithms. The authors take an approach to problem solving that starts with representing the essence of problems using symbols or diagrams and ends with thinking about whether an answer makes sense.New! The Instructor Toolkit is a comprehensive and coordinated supplement package that helps instructors prepare for class. It contains a new Instructor's Annotated Edition, Complete Solutions Guide, and a CD-ROM package featuring the HM ClassPrep, HM Testing, Chemistry Animations and Videos CD-ROMs, and the Student Support Package. New! A comprehensive Student Support Package, automatically included with every new student text, features numerous resources to help students succeed in their courses. A two-sided Study Card with chemical formulas and reminders serves as a quick study aid. The password-protected Student Web Site features many useful resources, including ACE self-quizzes, interactive molecules, and flashcards of key terms. A CD-ROM features a review of the prerequisite mathematics relevant to this course. SMARTHINKING online tutoring provides free live and asynchronous study help to students. New! A new art program enhances the visual impact of the text while clarifying important concepts. Updated illustrations make it easier for students to connect molecular-level activity to macroscopic phenomena. The art program helps students connect abstract chemical concepts with real-life situations, motivating them to learn the material.New! Approximately one-third of the "Chemistry in Focus" boxes, which explore current applications of chemistry, are new to this edition.New! Chapter 3 now features revised sections on "Energy, Temperature, and Heat" and "Calculating Energy Changes."New! All content from the Student Web Site, along with HM Testing content and select assets from the Instructor Web Site, is available for professors using the popular WebCT and Blackboard course management systems.End-of-chapter material includes key terms, a summary of important facts, questions and problems arranged in matched pairs and keyed to chapter sections, additional problems that incorporate material from more than one section, and in-class discussion questions that promote collaborative learning and group work."Math Tips" in the text, indicated by an icon, help students as they perform various calculations."Cumulative Reviews" test concepts from a group of chapters. Answers for all even-numbered cumulative review exercises are included at the end of the book.Basic Chemistry, 5/e, (Chapters 115) provides basic coverage of chemical concepts and applications up through acids and bases.Available in both paperback and hardcover format, Introductory Chemistry, 5/e, (Chapters 118) expands coverage with the addition of equilibrium, oxidation-reduction reactions, electrochemistry, radioactivity, and nuclear energy.
