Introduction to Chemistry
*The authors believe introductory chemistry should maintain a focus on chemistry, rather than on math. Math is incorporated on an as-needed basis with an emphasis on concepts that problems are trying to illustrate.
*Integrated through the text, Math Toolboxes include a thorough explanation of the math, examples, worked-out solutions, and practice problems.
*To show chemistry relevance, chapters begin with an opening vignette that personalizes the content by telling a story about chemical phenomena encountered by students.
*Connect: A highly reliable, easy-to-use homework and learning management solution that embeds learning science and award-winning adaptive tools to improve student results.
*ALEKS Chemistry: It's not a homework system - it is so much more.
