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.

 

For two-semester courses in General Chemistry.

 

Actively engage students to become expert problem solvers and critical thinkers, using a streamlined approach

Principles of Chemistry: A Molecular Approach presents core concepts without sacrificing rigor, enabling students to make connections between chemistry and their lives or future careers. Drawing upon his classroom experience as an award-winning educator, Professor Tro extends chemistry to the student’s world by capturing student attention with examples of everyday processes and a captivating writing style. Throughout this student-friendly text, chemistry is presented visually through multi-level images that help students see the connections between the world around them (macroscopic), the atoms and molecules that compose the world (molecular), and the formulas they write down on paper (symbolic). The 4th Edition pairs digital, pedagogical innovation with insights from learning design and educational research to create an active, integrated, and easy-to-use framework.

 

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

Features

Actively engage students in learning chemistry

  • Streamlined coverage of all the necessary topics required for a general chemistry course makes this presentation ideal for professors who want a book that only covers the topics they need. At only 21 chapters, this text has no separate nonmetals, metals or coordination compounds chapters.

Help students move from novice to expert problem-solvers

  • New -  Missed This? feature appears in the end-of-chapter Self Assessment Quizzes and each odd-numbered Problems by Topic exercise. Missed This? provides sections to read and videos to watch to help students remediate where necessary.
  • Tro’s four-step “Sort, Strategize, Solve, and Check” problem-solving approach in the worked examples helps students connect the chemistry concepts to  the problem and to its solution by developing an explicit conceptual plan for each problem. This method helps students understand where to start a problem and to think through the solution rather than simply formula hunting based on the given information.

 

Empower students to visualize and understand chemistry

  • New Chapter 5 creates more topically-focused coverage—Chemical Reactions and Solutions have been divided into two separate chapters (now Chapters 4 and 5): one on chemical reactions (including stoichiometry), and another on solutions (including aqueous reactions). This new organization allows a sharper focus in each chapter and reduces the cognitive load for students.
  • Multipart images include symbolic, macroscopic, and molecular perspectives that are fundamental to visualizing and understanding chemistry.
    • Extensively updated art program better directs students’ attention to key elements in the art and promotes understanding of the processes depicted. Dozens of figures in the 4th Edition were reviewed by learning design specialists to ensure they are clearly navigable for students and now include more helpful  annotations and labels to help readers focus on key concepts.Tro’s multipart images help students see the relationship between the formulas they write down on paper (symbolic), the world they see around them (macroscopic), and the atoms and molecules that compose the world (molecular).
    • Abundant molecular-level views show students the connection between everyday processes visible to the eye and the behavior of atoms and molecules.

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

  • With Learning Catalytics, you’ll hear from every student when it matters most. You pose a variety of questions that help students recall ideas, apply concepts, and develop critical-thinking skills. Your students respond using their own smartphones, tablets, or laptops.  You can monitor responses with real-time analytics and find out what your students do – and don’t – understand. Then, you can adjust your teaching accordingly, and even facilitate peer-to-peer learning, helping students stay motivated and engaged. Learning Catalytics includes prebuilt questions for every key topic in General Chemistry.
  • Ready-to-Go Teaching Modules provide organized material for every tough topic in General Chemistry. Created for and by instructors, the modules provide a guide for easy-to-use assignments for before and after class plus in-class activities with clicker questions and questions in Learning Catalytics™. Modules can be easily accessed via Pearson Mastering Chemistry. New - Ready-to-Go Practice Modules are available for students to use on their own, even when their professor doesn’t assign the modules.

Empower each learner: Each student learns at a different pace. Personalized learning, including adaptive tools and wrong-answer feedback, pinpoints the precise areas where each student needs practice and gives all students the support they need – when and where they need it – to be successful.

  • The Chemistry Primer helps students remediate their chemistry math skills and prepare for their first college chemistry course.
    • Pre-built Assignments get students up to speed at the beginning of the course.
    • Math is covered in the context of chemistry, basic chemical literacy, balancing chemical equations, mole theory, and stoichiometry.
    • Scaled to students’ needs, remediation is only suggested to students who perform poorly on initial assessment.
    • Remediation includes tutorials, wrong-answer specific feedback, video instruction, and stepwise scaffolding to build students’ abilities.
  • Dynamic Study Modules help students study effectively–and at their own pace. How? By keeping them motivated and engaged. The assignable modules rely on the latest research in cognitive science, using methods–such as adaptivity, gamification, and intermittent rewards–to stimulate learning and improve retention. Each module poses a series of questions about a course topic or about a topic specific to the text. These question sets adapt to each student’s performance and offer personalized, targeted feedback to help them master key concepts.
  • Interactive Simulations cover difficult chemistry concepts. Written by leading authors in simulation development, they foster student understanding of chemistry and clearly illustrate cause-and-effect relationships, such as electrolysis, kinetic molecular theory, stoichiometry, and calorimetry.

 

Deliver trusted content: We partner with highly respected authors to develop interactive content and course-specific resources that keep students on track and engaged.

  • New -  16 Key Concept Videos for a total of 74 videos that combine artwork from the textbook with 2D and 3D animations to create a dynamic on-screen viewing and learning experience. These short videos include narration and brief live-action clips of author Nivaldo Tro explaining every key concept in general chemistry.
  • New - 24 new Interactive Worked Examples for a total of 125 add to the digital versions of select worked examples from the text that make Tro’s unique problem-solving strategies interactive. These digital versions instruct students how to break down problems using Tro’s “Sort, Strategize, Solve, and Check” technique. Like the Key Concept Videos, Interactive Worked Examples stop in the middle and force the student to interact by completing a step in the example. The examples also have a follow-up question that is assignable in Pearson Mastering Chemistry.
  • Updated - Data Interpretation and Analysis Problems help students build skills in analyzing and interpreting data. Now more easily Assignable in Pearson Mastering Chemistry, this new category of questions called Data Interpretation and Analysis questions uses real data from real life situations to ask students to analyze, interpret and interact with data, providing practice in reading graphs, digesting tables, and making data-driven decisions.
  • New - Learning Objective Tagging maps tutorials, end of chapter problems, sections and figures from the book and other instructional content in Mastering for the general chemistry course. A new view of the content in Mastering clusters content together so instructors can easily select a 'group of problems' and rich media and see how assigned content works together to meet learning objectives.

Improve student results: When you teach with Mastering, student performance often improves. That’s why instructors have chosen Mastering for over 15 years, touching the lives of over 20 million students.
