Description

For non-majors introductory chemistry courses.

This package includes MasteringChemistry®.

 

Make chemistry relatable to all students.

Chemistry for Changing Times has defined the liberal arts chemistry course and remains the most visually appealing and readable introduction to the subject. The Fourteenth Edition increases its focus on environmental and other relatable issues with revised green chemistry essays throughout and new Chemistry at Home experiments, both in the text and in MasteringChemistry. Abundant applications and examples fill each chapter and enable students of varied majors to relate to the content more readily. Updated material throughout reflects the latest scientific developments in the field demonstrating the relevance of chemistry to all students.

 

This package includes MasteringChemistry®an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to personalize learning and improve results. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts.

 

MasteringChemistry should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Please be sure you have the correct ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.

Features

This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content, which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

About the Textbook

 

Help Students Connect Chemistry to the Real World

  • NEW! Increased focus on sustainability throughout the text:
    • Increased Emphasis on Sustainability particularly in the applied chapters and exemplified by the coverage in chapter 13 on the atmosphere authored by contributor Andy Jorgensen from The University of Toledo who is a world-renowned environmental chemist. Particularly throughout the more “applied” chapters later in the book, the authors made a conscious effort to focus on topics that had a sustainability focus, with new coverage including coverage of manufacturing processes, pollution as well as conservation and recycling.
    • An emphasis on recycling as a theme throughout the book and added discussions on problems of atmospheric pollution and preservation of the benign greenhouse effect as well as help engage students in current issues while new Green Chemistry Essays provide students with a way to interpret environmental issues through a chemical perspective. Chapter 13 focuses on the atmosphere and Chapters 10—22 address manufacturing processes and their impact on pollution.
  • NEW! Chemistry at Home experiments, assignable in MasteringChemistry, provide students with safe and interesting activities they can do on their own to observe how chemistry is relevant to their day-to-day lives.
  • Compelling chapter openers include two or three connected images that introduce chemistry as it applies to an activity or product relevant to students’ lives. For example, Chapter 2 shows a tablet computer and the tiny integrated circuits that make it work. A photomicrograph of silicon atoms completes the connection from the macro world to the nano world.
  • Environment-focused applications include many interesting, relevant and environment topics to help students connect chemistry to the world around them.
  • Collaborative Group Projects are end-of-chapter exercises that help professors engage students in collaborative work with group assignments.

 

Improved conceptual understanding through relevant pedagogy

  • NEW! Estimation examples help further encourage conceptual thinking (found in “Have You Ever Wondered,” Self Assessment Questions and Critical Thinking Exercises).
  • "Have you Ever Wondered?” questions reflect real-life queries that commonly arise in students’ minds as they are working through the chapter content. These questions appear at the beginning of each chapter, with both question and answer added in appropriate locations within the chapter.
  • Critical Thinking Exercises encourage students to think critically about the scientific process and evaluate whether specific statements they might see in their daily lives meet the rational and objective standards of scientific rigor as outlined by the FLaReS method (Falsifiability, Logic, Replicability, Sufficiency). These items are also assignable in MasteringChemistry with answer specific feedback designed to help students understand the scientific process.
  • Self-Assessment Questions appear in each section as a concept check for students as they progress through the chapter.
  • Chapter Summaries are organized by sections, with key terms highlighted, to remind students of important concepts.
  • Molecular art features illustrations using a two-part visual image: microscopic and macroscopic views help students visualize what is happening on a molecular level.

 

This package includes MasteringChemistry®an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to personalize learning and improve results. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts.

 

The text and the technology assets of MasteringChemistry are designed to work in tandem, to create a seamless learning suite to supporting student learning before, during and after class

  

Before Class

  • NEW! Chemistry at Home experiments are safe and interesting activities that help students engage with the science and understand how the material is relevant to their day-to-day lives.

 

During Class

  • Learning Catalytics is an interactive, classroom tool that uses students’ smartphones, tablets, or laptops to engage them in more sophisticated tasks and thinking. Now included with Mastering with eText, Learning Catalytics enables you to generate classroom discussion, guide your lecture, and promote peer-to-peer learning with real-time analytics. Instructors, you can:
    • Pose a variety of open-ended questions that help your students develop critical thinking skills
    • Monitor responses to find out where students are struggling
    • Use real-time data to adjust your instructional strategy and try other ways of engaging your students during class
    • Manage student interactions by automatically grouping students for discussion, teamwork, and peer-to-peer learning

 

After Class

  • Tutorials, featuring specific wrong-answer feedback, hints, and a wide variety of educationally effective content, guide your students through the toughest topics in chemistry. The hallmark Hints and Feedback offer scaffolded instruction similar to what students would experience in an office hour, allowing them to learn from their mistakes without being given the answer.
  • NEW! Chemistry at Home Video Quizzes immerse students in doing the chemistry they are learning with household materials that are readily available to them. Students are asked to predict the outcome of the experiments part way through the video to assess their conceptual understanding of what is being testing and they are then challenged with follow-up problems that make sure they understand the take home message of the activity.
  • Math Remediation links in selected tutorials launch algorithmically generated math exercises that give students unlimited practice on prerequisite skills, freeing up class and office-hour time to focus on the chemistry. Exercises include guided solutions, sample problems, and learning aids for extra help, and offer helpful feedback when students enter incorrect answers.
