Chapter Reviews at the end of each chapter include Learning Goals and new visual thumbnails summarize the key points in each section. Learning Goals are included throughout the textbook to reinforce student retention and awareness of central concepts. These are available with Understanding the Concepts, Additional Questions and Problems, and Challenge Problems at the end of each chapter, and can be used by professors to assign homework in print and online via MasteringChemistry.

●    The robust visual program continues to engage visual learners and reinforce concepts with questions that accompany all of the figures, while Macro-to-Micro Art helps connect the atomic world to the macroscopic world.

●    Understanding the Concepts are questions placed at the end of each chapter. These questions build an understanding of the details of newly learned chemical concepts; which provides a way to understand details of newly learned chemical concepts.

●    A Concept Map at the end of each chapter shows how all the key concepts fit together, encouraging learning with a visual guide to the interrelationship among all the concepts in each chapter

●    New and Updated! Chapter-opening Clinical Career focus provide engaging stories relating how Chemistry is used daily in contemporary health-related professions. The chapter openers are now more clinically oriented with each story revisited with a Clinical Update at the end of chapter.

●    NEW! Clinical Update feature appears in the end-of-chapter material for each chapter and revisits the story from the Chapter-opening Career feature in the context of the chemistry learned in the chapter and provides additional application problems.

●    Icons throughout the text highlight clinical application problems. These problems offer additional examples of how allied health professionals use chemistry daily in their careers.

●    Chemistry Links to Health apply chemical concepts to relevant topics of health and medicine such as weight loss and weight gain, trans fats, anabolic steroids, alcohol abuse, genetic diseases, viruses, and cancer.

●    Chemistry Links to the Environment relate chemistry to environmental topics such as global warming, radon in our homes, acid rain, and biodiesel.

 Help students develop problem-solving skills

●    EXPANDED! Guides to Problem Solving (GPS) use unique color-coded flow charts, coordinated with parallel solutions of worked examples to visually guide students step-by-step through each problem solving strategy. Guides to Problem Solving include Using Concentration to Calculate Mass or Volume, Problem Solving Using Density, Writing Formulas with Polyatomic Ions, Using Half-Lives, Drawing Electron-Dot Formulas, Determination of Polarity of a Molecule, and Calculating the Molar Mass of a Gas

●    EXPANDED! Analyze the Problem feature accompanies manySample Problems and are designed to strengthen critical-thinking skills by showing students how to break down a word problem into the components required to solve a problem.

●    Combining Ideas are sets of integrated problems that are placed after every 2-4 chapters. They test students’ understanding of the previous chapters by integrating topics from two or more previous chapters.

●    Numerous Sample Problems in each chapter demonstrate the application of each new concept to problem solving. The worked-out solutions give step-by-step explanations, provide a problem-solving model, and illustrate required calculations. Each sample problem is followed by a study check question. Answers to all the study checks are given at the end of the chapter.

●    Questions and Problems are placed at the end of each section. Problems are paired and the Answers to the odd-numbered problems are given at the end of each chapter. These questions encourage students to apply concepts and become involved immediately in the process of problem solving.
