Introductory Chemistry: An Atoms First Approach by Julia Burdge and Michelle Driessen has been developed and written using an atoms first approach specific to introductory chemistry. It is a carefully crafted text, designed and written with the introductory chemistry student in mind.
The arrangement of topics facilitates the conceptual development of chemistry for the novice, rather than the historical development that has been used traditionally. Its language and style are student friendly and conversational, and the importance and wonder of chemistry in everyday life are emphasized at every opportunity.
The text is strengthened by its offering in ALEKS, now featuring Custom Question Authoring, Video Assignments, Virtual Labs, and more!
