Introduction to Chemistry, 13th edition, International Student Version

Morris Hein, Susan Arena

ISBN: ES8-0-470-50591-5

Description

Used by over 750,000 students, Hein/Arena is praised for its accuracy, clear no-nonsense approach, and direct writing style. Foundations direct and straightforward explanations focus on problem solving making it the most dependable text on the market. Its comprehensive scope, proven track record, outstanding in-text examples and problem sets, were all designed to provide instructors with a solid text while not overwhelming students in this difficult course.

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.

Index.

•     Chapters 1-4 restructured for smoother start

•     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

"It would be useful on access or foundation courses and possibly as an extra text for A-level students. Lecturers teaching at access level would find this book useful, as it gives clear explanations of simple concepts." (Reviews, December 2010)

•     Clear and logical explanations of chemical concepts

•     Step-by-step approach to problem solving

•     Varied levels of questions and problems

•     Worked-out examples relating to the real world
