This text fosters a conceptual understanding of chemical properties and principles. The authors present all of the information as a coherent package with clear, logical treatments of key topics and smooth transitions between sections and chapters. The periodic table and periodicity are used throughout as a unifying theme and as a framework on which to build greater understanding of chemical behavior and trends. Problem-solving is emphasized as a vehicle to a deeper understanding of principles rather than simply as an activity in formula memorization.From the Back Cover:
