End-of-chapter problems from this textbook are available in Connect: Chemistry for instructors to build assignments that are automatically graded and tracked through reports that export easily to Excel. Instructors can edit existing problems and write entirely new problems; track individual student performance—by problem, assignment, concept, or in relation to the class overall—with automatic grading; provide instant feedback to students; and store detailed grade reports securely online. Grade reports can be easily integrated with learning management systems such as WebCT and Blackboard. Single sign-on integration is available with the Blackboard course management system. Within Connect, instructors can also create and share materials with colleagues. Ask your McGraw-Hill representative for more information, and then check it out at www.mcgrawhillconnect.com/chemistry.
McGraw-Hill’s ConnectPlus eBook takes digital texts beyond a simple PDF. With the same content as the printed book, but optimized for the screen, the ConnectPlus eBook has embedded media, including animations and videos, which bring concepts to life and provide “just in time” learning for students. Additionally, fully integrated homework problems allow students to interact with the problems to determine if they’re gaining mastery of the content, and the problems can also be assigned by the instructor.
LearnSmart™is an adaptive diagnostic learning system, powered by Connect: Chemistry and based on artificial intelligence, constantly assesses the student's knowledge of the course material. As they work within the system, LearnSmart develops a personal learning path adapted to what they have actively learned and retained. This innovative study tool also has features to allow the instructor to see exactly what the student has accomplished, with a built-in assessment tool for graded assignments. You can access LearnSmart for general chemistry by going to www.mcgraw-hillconnect.com/chemistry.
Connect: Chemistry also houses our Digital Lecture Capture: Tegrity. McGraw-Hill Tegrity Campus records and distributes your lecture with just a click of a button. Students can view anytime/anywhere via computer, iPod, or mobile device. Tegrity indexes as it records your slideshow presentations and anything shown on your computer, so students can use keywords to find exactly what they want to study.
