Summary

Designed to prepare students for health-related careers, General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry: Structures of Lifebreaks chemical concepts down into manageable pieces and offers a step-by-step approach that clarifies student understanding. Timberlake's friendly writing style, student focus, strong problems, and engaging, health-related applications make this book a best seller among its peers. The Fourth Editionemphasizes connections between chemistry and students' future careers - and develops the problem-solving skills students need beyond the classroom. Each chapter now includes NEW chapter-opening Career Interviewsand Career Focusfeatures to illustrate the role chemistry plays in modern, health-related professions. A new Analyze the Problemfeature furthers critical-thinking skills by showing students how to break down a word problem into the components needed to solve that problem. Throughout the new edition, national student performance data collected through MasteringChemistry®on assigned problems informed the extensive revisions to end-of-chapter problems, ensuring their effectiveness. This package contains: General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry: Structures of Life, Fourth Edition

Author Biography

Karen Timberlake is Professor Emerita of chemistry at Los Angeles Valley College, where she taught chemistry for allied health and preparatory chemistry for 36 years. She received her bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Washington and her master’s degree in biochemistry from the University of California at Los Angeles.

Professor Timberlake has been writing chemistry textbooks for 35 years. During that time, her name has become associated with the strategic use of pedagogical tools that promote student success in chemistry and the application of chemistry to real-life situations. More than one million students have learned chemistry using texts, laboratory manuals, and study guides written by Karen Timberlake. In addition to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry: Structures of Life, Fourth Edition, she is also the author of Basic Chemistry, Third Edition, and Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, Eleventh Edition with the accompanying Study Guide, Selected Solutions Manual, Laboratory Manual, and Essential Laboratory Manual.

Professor Timberlake belongs to numerous science and educational organizations including the American Chemical Society (ACS) and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). She was the Western Regional Winner of Excellence in College Chemistry Teaching Award given by the Chemical Manufacturers Association. In 2004, she received the McGuffey Award in Physical Sciences from the Text and Academic Authors Association for her textbook Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, eight edition, which has demonstrated excellence over time. In 2006, she received the Textbook excellence award for the first edition of Basic Chemistry. She has participated in education grants for science teaching including the Los Angeles Collaborative for Teaching Excellence (LACTE) and a Title III grant at her college. She speaks at conferences and educational meetings on the use of student-centered teaching methods in chemistry to promote learning success of students.
