About the Author:

Larry Brown (Ph.D, Princeton University) is a Senior Lecturer and coordinator for the general chemistry for engineers course at Texas A&M University. He received his B.S. in 1981 from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and his M. A. in 1983 from Princeton University. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow from 1986-88 at the University of Chicago. His research activities include active learning and use of technology in education and integration of chemistry with other subjects in the engineering curriculum. His current efforts are in (i) continued development of the CHEM 107 curriculum, (ii) improving uses of technology in chemical education, and (iii) incorporation of active learning strategies into large classroom settings. These efforts are brought together with the Foundation Coalition, an NSF-supported effort to implement a new model for the education of engineering students. Larry also monitors the CHEM 107 course for Texas A&M's campus in Qatar in the Middle East and has traveled there numerous times.

Review:

"This is an excellent text for teaching chemistry to engineering students. The topics are ones that our engineering faculty has asked us to stress, the pedagogical approach is exactly what the engineering programs have asked for, and the overt attempt to make the material meaningful to engineering students is very important."

"I enjoyed the way the authors relate theories to practical applications, specifically for engineering students. [The] "Insights into..." for each chapter bring the whole chapter together. I would seriously consider using this text."

"The major strengths are (1) quite concise and easy to read; (2) many explanations of concepts are approached from industrial point of view which will draw attention from students majoring in engineering. The reading level is good and easy to follow. I really like the style of example solutions. They are great for students!"

"The authors' writing style is wonderful. I can't say enough to express how excited I am to have a potential text that communicates this well. I would describe this effort as a General Chemistry book actually written from the foundation up for Engineers rather than a massaged majors-level text. It's a round peg for a round hole."

"This textbook is unlike any other I have encountered in its use of clear themes to link the material together, and to ground it in a real-world application. I have found a good text for our 1-semester engineering course that covers the topics that are necessary for our students' development in appropriate depth, but which does not go into unnecessary detail on topics which are of little use to the student's career."
