Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

Pulling from her experience of teaching general chemistry for many years, the author of the sixth edition of Chemistry offers a text that offers more in-depth explanation in areas where she knows students often encounter misunderstandings. The text is strengthened by its offering in ALEKS, featuring:
• ALEKS Topics to assign as pre-requisite assignments to boost student confidence and help those lacking math skills.
• End-of-Chapter Questions aligned to the text for homework, test, and quiz assignments.
• Virtual Labs to be used as pre-lab prep assignments, or lab replacement.
• Video Assignments that break down key concepts and show step-by-step solutions.

About the Author

Julia Burdge

Dr. Julia Burdge did most of her undergraduate work at Iowa State University, completing her bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in inorganic chemistry at the University of South Florida in Tampa. She earned her Ph.D. in analytical chemistry at the University of Idaho. Her Master’s and doctoral research involved the development of chemotherapeutic analogs of cisplatin and the development of instruments and methods for measuring ultra-trace concentrations of atmospheric sulfur compounds. Over the past 20 years, she has taught introductory and advanced courses in every division of the undergraduate chemistry curriculum, as well as interdisciplinary courses. She also developed and taught a new introductory chemistry course for pre-service science teachers, and initiated and served as a mentor in a future faculty development program for graduate students and post-doctoral associates. She is currently affiliated with the University of Idaho.
