9780131993235: Chemistry, 5th Edition

For two-semester or three-quarter courses in General Chemistry.

 

McMurry/Fay makes the right connections in general chemistry topically, visually, and quantitatively.  Chemistry is mastered when students make the right connections in three key areas; topics that are related, conceptual reasoning with quantitative work, and the different modes of communicating information.  McMurry/Fay breaks through the boundaries traditionally imposed by textbooks that have historically made it difficult for students to make these connections on their own.  Topic Connections, Conceptual and Quantitative parallel presentation, and Text-Graphic Integration Objects make these critical connections clear and visible, so students see the chemistry the first time.  When you see the connections, you see the chemistry.

 

Students don’t use textbooks exactly the same way they used them in the past.  The new layout of MF5 was designed to map to the way students seek and process information, and is based on conversations with students about the way they study.
