Summary

New from a coauthor of the highly acclaimed Conceptual Physical Science, Second Edition (Addison Wesley, 1999), Conceptual Chemistry provides a fresh, insightful, and welcoming look into the concepts of chemistry at a level suitable for college students who tend to shy away from science courses. Emphasis is placed upon a conceptual understanding of our every day world from the perspective of atoms and molecules. Real-world examples and student activities are woven throughout, and calculations are incorporated in select instances where they assist in conceptual understanding. Twelve core chapters cover basic chemical concepts such as atomic models, chemical bonding, and chemical reactions. These are followed by seven chapters organized around chemistry-related topics, such as nutrition, drugs, agriculture, water resources, the atmosphere, commercial materials, and sources of energy. The end-of-chapter study material for each chapter is extensive and includes Matching Key Terms, Review Questions, Insights to Hands-On Chemistry activities, Exercises, Suggested Readings and Web sites, and, for select chapters, Problems and Discussion Topics.
