Help students master math and problem solving they will use in their future chemistry classes
Basic Chemistry introduces Introductory Chemistry students to the essential scientific and mathematical concepts of general chemistry while providing the scaffolded support they need. The text uses accessible language and a moderate pace to provide an easy-to-follow approach for first-time chemistry students and those hoping to renew their study of chemistry. With Basic Chemistry, Bill and Karen Timberlake make the study of chemistry an engaging and positive experience for today’s students by relating the structure and behavior of matter to real life.
The 6th Edition presents a new visual program that incorporates sound pedagogical principles from educational research on the way today’s students learn and retain knowledge. The text’s applied focus helps students connect chemistry with their interests and potential careers through applications tied to real-life topics in health, the environment, and medicine. The new edition strengthens its emphasis on problem solving with additional end-of-chapter Challenge problems and new assignable practice problems that ensure students master the basic quantitative skills and conceptual understanding needed to succeed in this course and to continue their studies in the field.
Also available as a Pearson eText or packaged with Mastering Chemistry
Pearson eText is a simple-to-use, mobile-optimized, personalized reading experience that can be adopted on its own as the main course material. It lets students highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place, even when offline. Seamlessly integrated videos and other rich media engage students and give them access to the help they need, when they need it. Educators can easily share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their eText and what they learn in class ― motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning.
Mastering combines trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform to personalize the learning experience and improve results for each student. Built for, and directly tied to the text, Mastering Chemistry enables an extension of learning, allowing students a platform to practice, learn, and apply outside of the classroom.
Note: You are purchasing a standalone book; Pearson eText and Mastering Chemistry do not come packaged with this content. Students, ask your instructor for the correct package ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
