The World of Chemistry: Essentials (Available Titles OWL)

Joesten, Melvin D.; Castellion, Mary E.; Hogg, John L. Author

Image Not Available

Joesten's WORLD OF CHEMISTRY: ESSENTIALS is known for effectively presenting chemistry in terms understandable to the non-science major. The Fourth Edition continues to clearly explain the importance of chemistry and the impact it has on students' daily lives by including topics that are interesting to students early in the text and by explaining the relevance of the chemical principles students hear about every day in the news. To help students develop a general appreciation of the effect chemistry has on their lives, the authors take a less-theoretical approach to the basics and offer thought-provoking chapter-opening questions, a wealth of pertinent examples, and NEW "Chemistry in Movies" boxes. Additionally, application chapters are now included earlier in the text to further demonstrate to students the relevance of the chemistry they are studying. OWL (Online Web-based Learning), our fully customizable and flexible web-based homework management system and assessment tool, is now available with this text.

About the Author:

Melvin D. Joesten, Professor of Chemistry and Education at Vanderbilt University, received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois. His interests include chemical education for the college liberal arts student; chemical education for college science and engineering students; and K12 science education with emphasis on pre-service and in-service programs for teachers.

Mary E. Castellion, text book writer.

John L. Hogg was Professor of Chemistry and Thamann Professor of Undergraduate Teaching Excellence at Texas A&M University. He received his B.S. degree in chemistry at Southwestern State College in Oklahoma, his Ph.D. from the University of Kansas, and joined the faculty at Texas A&M University in 1975. He has about 40 publications in the general areas of physical organic and bioorganic chemistry. He has received numerous teaching awards, including the Texas A&M University Association of Former Students Faculty Distinguished Achievement Awards in Teaching, College of Science teaching award (2002) and the Mervin and Annette Peters Advising Award as the outstanding undergraduate faculty advisor at Texas A&M in 2004. Dr. Hogg was one of the first four faculty members at Texas A&M to receive the title of University Professor of Undergraduate Teaching Excellence (1996), and he was honored with a named professorship in 2002. John passed away suddenly in 2008, and we dedicate this revision to his memory.
