Long known for its superior problem-solving pedagogy and engaging narrative style, the new edition of Introductory Chemistry: A Foundation offers unparalleled instructor and student support. This best-selling text motivates students and maintains their interest in the material by connecting chemistry to real-life experiences and emphasizing visual learning with figures that illustrate concepts and photos that depict chemical phenomena and connect chemistry with the real world.
The text helps students develop the problem-solving skills so critical to success in chemistry by teaching a thoughtful step-by-step approach to solving problems, rather than teaching them, prematurely, to use algorithms. The authors take an approach to problem solving that starts with representing the essence of problems using symbols or diagrams and ends with thinking about whether an answer makes sense.
