Description

Product Description

Does not contain an access card. The Atoms First approach provides a consistent and logical method for teaching general chemistry. This approach starts with the fundamental building block of matter, the atom, and uses it as the stepping stone to understanding more complex chemistry topics. Once mastery of the nature of atoms and electrons is achieved, the formation and properties of compounds are developed. Only after the study of matter and the atom will students have sufficient background to fully engage in topics such as stoichiometry, kinetics, equilibrium, and thermodynamics. Thus, the Atoms First approach empowers instructors to present the most complete and compelling story of general chemistry. Far from a simple re-ordering of topics, this is a book that will truly meet the needs of the growing atoms-first market. The third edition continues to build on the innovative success of the first and second editions. Changes to this edition include specific refinements intended to augment the student-centered pedagogical features that continue to make this book effective and popular both with professors, and with their students.

About the Author

Jason Overby received his B.S. in chemistry and political science from the University of Tennessee at Martin, his Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from Vanderbilt University, and conducted postdoctoral research at Dartmouth College. Since joining the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the College of Charleston, Jason has taught courses from general chemistry to advanced inorganic chemistry, and conducts research with undergraduates. He is interested in integrating technology into the classroom, with a particular focus on adaptive learning.

Dr. Julia Burdge did most of her undergraduate work at Iowa State University, completing her bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in inorganic chemistry at the University of South Florida in Tampa. She earned her Ph.D. in analytical chemistry at the University of Idaho. Her Master’s and doctoral research involved the development of chemotherapeutic analogs of cisplatin and the development of instruments and methods for measuring ultra-trace concentrations of atmospheric sulfur compounds. Over the past 20 years, she has taught introductory and advanced courses in every division of the undergraduate chemistry curriculum, as well as interdisciplinary courses. She also developed and taught a new introductory chemistry course for pre-service science teachers, and initiated and served as a mentor in a future faculty development program for graduate students and post-doctoral associates. She is currently affiliated with the University of Idaho.

I honestly LOVE this book. I have a great professor but sometimes I want things to be more in detail. I used this book mostly to study for my chem test and got a 97 so I must be doing something right. The only thing is that I wish the it gave the answers to the part c of some of the worked problems.

Chemistry is not my favorite subject so I am slightly biased to begin with
Reviewed in the United States on March 9, 2018
It is an alright textbook. Chemistry is not my favorite subject so I am slightly biased to begin with. I didn''t think that their problem solving workflow was the best. It was hard to follow.

So the title says it all, also someone in my class told me they rented it for around 70$ I paid 140 and its mine for all my chemistry classes, and I dont have to worry if I mark it up or rip a page. Its a very good deal and I''m very pleased with the purchase.
