The 9th edition of Malone's Basic Concepts of Chemistry provides many new and advanced features that continue to address general chemistry topics with an emphasis on outcomes assessment. New and advanced features include an objectives grid at the end of each chapter which ties the objectives to examples within the sections, assessment exercises at the end each section, and relevant chapter problems at the end of each chapter. Every concept in the text is clearly illustrated with one or more step by step examples. Making it Real essays have been updated to present timely and engaging real-world applications, emphasizing the relevance of the material they are learning. This edition continues the end of chapter Student Workshop activities to cater to the many different learning styles and to engage users in the practical aspect of the material discussed in the chapter.

Math Check – allows students to quickly assess the needed basic math skill. If the student is not mathematically ready to tackle a text problem, he or she is referred back to chapter 1 or the math appendices for further review.

Chapter Tutorial Problems – multi-part problems that challenge students to solve objective-targeted problems similar to the ones that appear as examples within the text. These problems provide students with a step-by-step feedback on how to approach each part of the problem. 

•Chapter Synthesis Problems – multi-part problems that relate the chapter and its exercises to the real world of science. Each part of the chapter synthesis problem has answer-specific feedback to help guide the students through each step. 

•Office Hour Videos – the authors work through specific end of chapter problems, using a whiteboard with explanatory voice over. Each problem is worked out, with enhancing graphics, in a 2-3 minute video that is designed to provide the same clarification that a student would receive during a lecture or face-to-face meeting.
