9780321813312: General Chemistry: Atoms First, Books a la Carte Plus MasteringChemistry with eText -- Access Card Package (2nd Edition)

Books a la Carte are unbound, three-hole-punch versions of the textbook. This lower cost option is easy to transport and comes with same access code or media that would be packaged with the bound book.

 

General Chemistry: Atoms First with MasteringChemistry® starts from the building blocks of chemistry, the atom, allowing the authors to tell a cohesive story that progresses logically through molecules and compounds to help students intuitively follow complex concepts more logically. This unified thread of ideas helps students build a better foundation and ultimately gain a deeper understanding of chemical concepts. Students can more easily understand the microscopic-to-macroscopic connections between unobservable atoms and the observable behavior of matter in daily life, and are brought immediately into real chemistry–instead of being forced to memorize facts.

 

Reflecting a true atoms first perspective, the Second Edition features  experienced atoms-first authors, incorporates recommendations from a panel of atoms-first experts, and follows historical beliefs in teaching chemistry concepts based and real experimental data first. This approach distinguishes this text in the market based whereby other authors teach theory first, followed by experimental data.  The text’s robust technology program includes new Pause/Predict videos, new simulations and animations, and tutorials written specifically to teach with an atoms-first approach in MasteringChemistry.

 

Package consists of:

  • Books a la Carte for General Chemistry: Atoms First, Second Edition
  • Access Card Code Card for MasteringChemistry with Pearson eText
