- Developed in conjunction with the ACS Task Force on the General Chemistry Curriculum.
- The text contains 16 core chapters followed by optional modules that the instructor may cover at his or her discretion. Thus considerable flexibility is provided in structuring the course.
- Core themes emphasis process of science, relationship between molecular structure and physical/chemical properties, & relationship between micro and macro levels.
- The text and related materials are based on a hands-on approach to learning chemistry. Students are given models or data where possible and are guided by leading questions to develop the concepts by themselves.
