Summary

This loose-leaf, three-hole punched version of the textbook gives students the flexibility to take only what they need to class and add their own notes — all at an affordable price.


DIGITAL UPDATE available for Fall 2020 classes

The Pearson eText and Mastering have been updated to provide new author-written content that actively engages students every step of the way in becoming expert problem solvers.


For courses in two-semester general chemistry.


An atoms-first approach that actively engages students in learning chemistry and becoming expert problem solvers

With Chemistry: Structure and Properties , author Nivaldo Troincorporates his engaging and precise narrative to tell the story of chemistry with an atoms-first approach. This approach emphasizes that matter is particulate – composed of molecules – and the structure of those particles determines the properties of matter. The relationship of structure affecting properties is the thread that weaves all of chemistry together, and this theme is applied to all aspects of the text, from content and organization to art and pedagogy. The book presents chemistry as a logical, cohesive story from the microscopic to the macroscopic, so students can fully grasp the theories and framework behind the chemical facts.


Personalize learning with Mastering Chemistry

By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, Mastering personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student. Mastering Chemistry provides an extension of learning, allowing students a platform to practice, learn, and apply knowledge outside of the classroom.
