Chemistry: Structure and Dynamics, 5th Edition
December 2010, ©2011
The fifth edition is revised in keeping with our commitment to the chemical education community and specifically the POGIL (Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning) Project. This text reflects two core principles, first that the concepts that are covered are fundamental building blocks for understanding chemistry and second, that the concepts should be perceived by the students as being directly applicable to their interests and careers. The authors further provide this "core" coverage using 1 of 3 models; data-driven, chemical theories and students understanding, which allows for a more concrete foundation on which students build conceptual understanding.

- 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.
