Summary

General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry: Structures of Life? was written and designed to help you prepare for a career in a health-related profession, such as nursing, dietetics, respiratory therapy, and environmental and agricultural science. This text assumes no prior knowledge of chemistry and strives to make the study of chemistry an engaging and positive experience for you by relating the structure and behavior of matter to its role in health and the environment.

The 6th Edition introduces more problem-solving strategies and more problem-solving guides, all to help you become a critical thinker by understanding scientific concepts. The author's goal is to help you to learn and enjoy chemistry, relate chemistry to careers that may interest you, develop problem-solving skills that lead to your success in chemistry and promote your learning and success in chemistry.

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 40 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, 6th Edition, she is also the author of An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, 13th Edition, with the accompanying Study Guide and Selected Solutions Manual, Laboratory Manual and Essentials Laboratory Manual, and Basic Chemistry, 5th Edition, with the accompanying Study Guide and Selected Solutions Manual.

 

Professor Timberlake belongs to numerous scientific and educational organizations including the American Chemical Society (ACS) and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). She has been the Western Regional Winner of the Excellence in College Chemistry Teaching Award given by the Chemical Manufacturers Association. She received the McGuffey Award in Physical Sciences from the Textbook Authors Association for her textbook Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, 8th Edition, which has demonstrated her excellence over time. She received the “Texty” Textbook Excellence Award from the Textbook Authors Association 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 the learning success of students.

 

When Professor Timberlake is not writing textbooks, she and her husband relax by playing tennis, ballroom dancing, traveling, trying new restaurants, cooking, and taking care of their grandchildren, Daniel and Emily.
