Foundations of College Chemistry, Alternate, 13th Edition
January 2010, ©2010
Foundations fits into the prep/intro chemistry courses which often include a wide mix of students from science majors not yet ready for general chemistry, allied health students in their 1st semester of a GOB sequence, science education students (for elementary school teachers), to the occasional liberal arts student fulfilling a science requirement. Hein/Arena was specifically designed to meet this wide array of needs.
2. Standards for Measurement.
3. Elements and Compounds.
4.Properties of Matter.
5. Early Atomic Theory and Structure.
6. Nomenclature of Inorganic Compounds.
7. Quantitative Composition of Compounds.
8. Chemical Equations.
9. Calculations from Chemical Equations.
10. Modern Atomic Theory and the Periodic Table.
11. Chemical Bonds: The Formation of Compounds from Atoms.
12. The Gaseous State of Matter.
13. Properties of Liquids.
15. Acids, Bases, and Salts.
16. Chemical Equilibrium.
• Previous chapter 3 content(physical states, classification of matter) has been moved to chapter 1 to provide a stronger emphasis on matter
• New section added to Chapter 3 to provide a clear framework for problem solving.
• New Problem Solving Strategy boxes to highlight how to think about working chemistry problems.
• New Rules boxes added to emphasize the procedures used in chemistry nomenclature and mathematics.
• Examples have be rewritten using the new overall approach to problems solving and incorporate the use of the Problem solving Strategy boxes.
• 15-20% new of the end of chapter problems
• Additional Catalyst problems added to end of chapter problems to highlight the connection of the text to on-line study materials
• Updated molecular art and glassware
• More macro-molecular art, where appropriate
• Step-by-step approach to problem solving
• Varied levels of questions and problems
• Worked-out examples relating to the real world
