Description

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.

 

Give students a robust conceptual foundation while building critical problem-solving skills

Robinson/McMurry/Fay’s Chemistry, known for a concise and united author voice, conceptual focus, extensive worked examples, and thoroughly constructed connections between organic, biological, and general chemistry, highlights the application of chemistry to students’ lives and careers. Lead author Jill Robinson strengthens the student orientation by creating more engaging, active learning opportunities for students and faculty.

 

With the 8th Edition, Robinson draws upon her exceptional teaching skills to provide new interactive experiences that help identify and address students’ preconceptions. Robinson complements active engagement in the text with a new media program that increases student awareness of their learning process via Pearson MasteringChemistry and the Pearson eText, allowing instructors to choose the level of interactivity appropriate for their classroom. Interactive experiences include activities that guide students in how to actively read a science text and address common preconceptions, giving students opportunities to cultivate and practice problem-solving skills.

 

Pearson MasteringChemistry is not included. Students, if Pearson MasteringChemistry is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN. Pearson MasteringChemistry should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.

 

Reach every student by pairing this text with Mastering Chemistry

Mastering™ is the teaching and learning platform that empowers you to reach every student. By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, Mastering personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.

Features

Facilitate active learning and engage students in learning chemistry

  • Big Idea questions provide new interactivity within the eText and teach students how to actively read a science text by modeling the kinds of questions they should ask themselves, prompting them to summarize main points, and stimulating them to make connections between concepts and mathematical problems. These questions help ensure students are familiar with main concepts and terms before coming to class. Activities like this also improve retention and comprehension by asking students to answer questions at the end of reading a section for retrieval practice.
  • Newly Interactive - Figure It Out questions provide new interactivity within the eText so students can test themselves at the point of learning and receive instant, answer-specific feedback written by author Jill Robinson. Questions appear with select figures and encourage students to look at each illustration more carefully and recognize general lessons offered in the figure.
  • New - Practice Tests provide assessment for chapter learning objectives and additional instruction in concepts and problem-solving skills in the printed text as well as in the eText and Mastering Chemistry. When students miss a problem, they are instructed to consult the study guide for additional instruction and practice problems. When a student answers incorrectly in Pearson MasteringChemistry or the eText, their practice exam automatically links to worked examples and additional practice problems.
  • Updated - Inquiry sections highlight the importance of chemistry, promote student interest, and deepen student understanding of the content by showcasing problems that revisit several chapter concepts. These problems can be covered in class, recitation sections, or assigned as homework in Mastering Chemistry.

 

Build problem-solving skills and help students develop critical thinking

  • New and Updated - Worked Examples provide more than any other text on the market and are tightly integrated into the text’s flow and concise narrative. Select Worked Examples include videos of author Jill Robinson showing students how to work through the examples.
  • Newly interactive Practice and Apply problems accompany each Worked Example in the eText and are assignable in Mastering Chemistry.
  • New - 49 Problem-Solving Videos (at least two per chapter) help students see every step of the problem-solving process and feature Jill Robinson working out problems in the text. These dynamic videos are provided in Mastering Chemistry, referenced in the print text, and are also embedded in the eText.
  • Updated - End-of-Chapter Problems have been reviewed and analyzed by author Jill Robinson for accuracy and to ensure each problem is tied to a learning objective in the end-of-chapter Study Guide. All End-of-Chapter problems now tie to specific examples throughout the text, supporting the intuitive flow of material.

 

Engage students to make the connections between concepts and the math involved in the course

  • Extension of Conceptual Worked Examples help students move away from memorization as a primary problem-solving method by explicitly showing them the relationship between similar but related concepts and procedures while facilitating their ability to recognize and respond to these challenges.
  • In-chapter Conceptual Worked Examples give students their first exposure to working through problems to develop an understanding of the chapter’s concepts. Many of the worked examples include a step called conceptual apply.
  • In-chapter Conceptual Problems give students an immediate opportunity to solve problems that test their understanding of chemical concepts.
  • End-of-chapter Conceptual Problems give students an opportunity to test that they understand all the major concepts in the chapter before moving on to the multi-concept problems that require this understanding.
