Chemistry: A Guided Approach 5 th Edition follows the underlying principles developed by years of research on how readers learn and draws on testing by those using the POGIL methodology. This text follows inquiry based learning and correspondingly emphasizes the underlying concepts and the reasoning behind the concepts. This text offers an approach that follows modern cognitive learning principles by having readers learn how to create knowledge based on experimental data and how to test that knowledge.
