Make chemistry relatable to all students.
Chemistry for Changing Times has defined the liberal arts chemistry course and remains the most visually appealing and readable introduction to the subject. The Fourteenth Edition increases its focus on environmental and other relatable issues with revised green chemistry essays throughout and new Chemistry at Home experiments, both in the text and in MasteringChemistry. Abundant applications and examples fill each chapter and enable students of varied majors to relate to the content more readily. Updated material throughout reflects the latest scientific developments in the field demonstrating the relevance of chemistry to all students.
MasteringChemistry® from Pearson is the leading online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results by engaging students before, during, and after class with powerful content. Instructors ensure students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class, and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics. Students can further master concepts after class through traditional and adaptive homework assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback. The Mastering gradebook records scores for all automatically graded assignments in one place, while diagnostic tools give instructors access to rich data to assess student understanding and misconceptions.
John W. Hill
Hill received his Ph.D. from the University of Arkansas. As an organic chemist, he has published more than 50 papers, most of which have an educational bent.
