Reviews book: The Eighth Edition of Zumdahl and DeCoste's best-selling INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY: A FOUNDATION combines enhanced problem-solving structure with substantial pedagogy to enable students to become strong independent problem solvers in the introductory course and beyond. Capturing student interest through early coverage of chemical reactions, accessible explanations and visualizations, and an emphasis on everyday applications, the authors explain chemical concepts by starting with the basics, using symbols or diagrams, and conclude by encouraging students to test their own understanding of the solution. This step-by-step approach has already helped hundreds of thousands of students master chemical concepts and develop problem-solving skills. The book is known for its focus on conceptual learning and for the way it motivates students by connecting chemical principles to real-life experiences in chapter-opening discussions and Chemistry in Focus boxes. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
Reviews book: This book, the fourth in a series of Understanding Chemistry books, deals with Basic Chemistry. Written for students taking either the University of Cambridge O-level examinations or the GCSE examinations, this textbook covers essential topics under both stipulated chemistry syllabi. The book is written in such a way as to guide the reader through the understanding and applications of basic essential chemical concepts by introducing a discourse feature — the asking and answering of questions — that stimulates coherent thinking and hence, elucidates ideas. Based on the Socratic Method, questions are implanted throughout the book to help facilitate the reader's development in forming logical conclusions of concepts. The book helps students to master fundamental chemical concepts in a simple way.
Reviews book: Written for students taking either the University of Cambridge O-level examinations or the GCSE examinations, this guidebook covers essential topics and concepts under stipulated chemistry syllabi. The topics are explored through an explanatory and inquiry-based approach. They are interrelated and easy to understand, with succinct explanations/examples being included, especially on areas that students frequently find difficult. Topics address the whys and hows behind key concepts to be mastered, so that the concepts are made understandable and intuitive for students. The focus is on conceptual learning so as to equip students with knowledge for critical learning and problem solving. The authors have also retained the popular discourse feature from their previous four books — Understanding Advanced Physical Inorganic Chemistry, Understanding Advanced Organic and Analytical Chemistry, Understanding Advanced Chemistry Through Problem Solving, and Understanding Basic Chemistry — to help the learners better understand and see for themselves, how the concepts should be applied during problems solving. Based on the Socratic Method, questions are implanted throughout the book to help facilitate the reader's development in forming logical conclusions of concepts and the way they are being applied to explain the problems. In addition, the authors have also included important summaries and concept maps to help the learners to recall, remember, reinforce and apply the fundamental chemical concepts in a simple way. Through their many years of teaching experiences, the authors have acquired a sound awareness of common students' misconceptions which are relayed through the questions and thus help to reinforce concepts learnt. This book is essential and useful to help students adequately prepare for the high-stake examinations.
Reviews book: This elegant book provides a student-friendly introduction to the subject of physical chemistry. It is concise and more compact than standard textbooks on the subject and it emphasises the two important concepts underpinning physical chemistry: quantum mechanics and the second law of thermodynamics. The principles are challenging to students because they both focus on uncertainty and probability. The book explains these fundamental concepts clearly and shows how they offer the key to understanding the wide range of chemical phenomena including atomic and molecular spectra, the structure and properties of solids, liquids and gases, chemical equilibrium, and the rates of chemical reactions.
Reviews book: Support understanding for the latest Cambridge IGCSE Chemistry syllabus (0620) for first examination in 2016. The clear, concise approach will support your EAL learners in understanding crucial scientific concepts. A step-by-step approach to the syllabus will help every learner reach their potential in science. Ensuring you will cover everything, this second edition is up-to-date for the latest Cambridge syllabus. It is written by an examiner, to help you support assessment confidence.
Reviews book: Written in a style and language that users without science backgrounds can understand. This best-selling introduction to the basic principles of chemistry draws on the reader's own experiences through analogies and cartoons to learn difficult concepts. The clear, systematic, thinking approach to problem solving has also been highly praised by reviewers and users alike. Countdown sections in each chapter, consisting of five review questions keyed to previous material provide readers with a basis for material introduced in the new chapter. Study exercises , found immediately after new topics are introduced, reinforce chapter problem material. You and Chemistry marginal application icon relates chemistry to the real world. End-of-chapter essays entitled Elements and Compounds relate the applications of specific elements or compounds to the readers' life.
