McGraw-Hill Connect is a web-based, interactive assignment and assessment platform that incorporates cognitive science principles to customize the learning process. The chemical drawing tool found within Connect: Chemistry is CambridgeSoft’s ChemDraw, which is widely considered the “gold standard” of scientific drawing programs and the cornerstone application for drawing and annotating molecules, reactions, and pathways. This combination of Connect and ChemDraw is an easy-to-use, intuitive, and comprehensive course management and homework system with professional-grade drawing capabilities.
End-of-chapter problems from this textbook are available in Connect: Chemistry for instructors to build assignments that are automatically graded and tracked through reports that export easily to Excel. Instructors can edit existing problems and write entirely new problems; track individual student performance—by problem, assignment, concept, or in relation to the class overall—with automatic grading; provide instant feedback to students; and store detailed grade reports securely online. Grade reports can be easily integrated with learning management systems such as WebCT and Blackboard. Single sign-on integration is available with the Blackboard course management system. Within Connect, instructors can also create and share materials with colleagues. Ask your McGraw-Hill representative for more information, and then check it out at www.mcgrawhillconnect.com/chemistry.
McGraw-Hill’s ConnectPlus eBook takes digital texts beyond a simple PDF. With the same content as the printed book, but optimized for the screen, the ConnectPlus eBook has embedded media, including animations and videos, which bring concepts to life and provide “just in time” learning for students. Additionally, fully integrated homework problems allow students to interact with the problems to determine if they’re gaining mastery of the content, and the problems can also be assigned by the instructor.
LearnSmart™is an adaptive diagnostic learning system, powered by Connect: Chemistry and based on artificial intelligence, constantly assesses the student's knowledge of the course material. As they work within the system, LearnSmart develops a personal learning path adapted to what they have actively learned and retained. This innovative study tool also has features to allow the instructor to see exactly what the student has accomplished, with a built-in assessment tool for graded assignments. You can access LearnSmart for general chemistry by going to www.mcgraw-hillconnect.com/chemistry.
Connect: Chemistry also houses our Digital Lecture Capture: Tegrity. McGraw-Hill Tegrity Campus records and distributes your lecture with just a click of a button. Students can view anytime/anywhere via computer, iPod, or mobile device. Tegrity indexes as it records your slideshow presentations and anything shown on your computer, so students can use keywords to find exactly what they want to study.

With ConnectPlus, instructors can deliver assignments, quizzes, and tests online. Questions are formatted in either multiple choice or open-ended numeric entry, with a variety of static and randomized, algorithmic versions. Instructors can edit existing questions or author entirely new problems. Track individual student performance—by question, assignment, or in relation to the class overall—with detailed, exportable grade reports. Additionally, ConnectPlus provides students 24/7 access to an interactive eBook—an online edition of the Chemistry: The Molecular Nature of Matter & Change text.
Included within ConnectPlus is LearnSmart™! LearnSmart is an intelligent learning system that uses a series of adaptive questions to pinpoint each student’s knowledge gaps. LearnSmart then provides an optimal learning path for each student, so that they spend less time in areas they already know and more time in areas they don’t.About the Author:
Martin S. Silberberg received his B.S. in chemistry from the City University of New York in 1966 and his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Oklahoma, in 1971. He then accepted a research position at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where he studied the chemical nature of neurotransmission and Parkinson's disease. In 1977, Dr. Silberberg joined the faculty of Simon's Rock College of Bard (Massachusetts), a liberal arts college known for its excellence in teaching small classes of highly motivated students. As Head of the Natural Sciences Major and Director of Premedical Studies, he taught courses in general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, and nonmajors chemistry. The close student contact afforded him insights into how students learn chemistry, where they have difficulties, and what strategies can help them succeed. In 1983, Dr. Silberberg decided to apply these insights in a broader context and established a text writing and editing company. Before writing his own text, he worked on chemistry, biochemistry, and physics texts for several major college publishers. He resides with his wife and child in Massachusetts. For relaxation, he cooks, sings, and walks in the woods.
