The main goal of the book is to motivate students and get them to achieve at the highest possible level. Chemistry: A Molecular Approach is a visual book. May contain limited notes, underlining or highlighting that does affect the text. What Could Have Been Better: The author could have organized the chapters in a way that didn't overload the reader with a lot of information at one time. Transition Metals and Coordination Compounds. During his postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Waterloo, he first began conducting research using mass spectrometric methods. Current Theories We have updated the text so that the most current, consensus scientific view is described.
Molecules, Compounds, and Chemical Equations 4. The goal is to foster collaborative learning and to give students the opportunity to work together as a team to solve problems. It is very good in bringing the learner along. Liquids, Solids, and Intermolecular Forces 12. End-of-Chapter Problems One of the first things that professors consider when choosing a chemistry textbook is the quality of end-of-chapter problems. A new category of questions called Data Interpretation and Analysis questions use real data from real life situations to ask students to analyze that data, providing practice in reading graphs, digesting tables, and making data-driven decisions.
He completed his postdoctoral research at the University of California at Berkeley. The Mastering gradebook records scores for all automatically graded assignments in one place, while diagnostic tools give instructors access to rich data to assess your understanding and misconceptions. Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MasteringChemistry does not come packaged with this content. The explanations could benefit from a bit more detail - but that is a personal felling. This package includes Mastering Chemistry. What is the percent yield of the reaction under these conditions? Each module poses a series of questions about a course topic or about a topic specific to the text.
However, Tro fails to include formulae for the majority of calculations. In his leisure time, Professor Tro enjoys mountain biking, surfing, and being outdoors with his family. Please note that many of these can be used interchangeably. 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.

Free Energy and Thermodynamics 19. He then went on to the University of California at Berkeley, where he did postdoctoral research on ultrafast reaction dynamics in solution.
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 revision has been constructed to easily incorporate material to engage readers. Topics include key math skills, general chemistry skills such as nuclear chemistry, phases of matter, redox reactions, acids and bases, and organic and biochemistry skills. Mastering brings learning full circle by continuously adapting to your learning and making learning more personal than ever—before, during, and after class. And the author tied each concept into a real-world application that helped me understand it better.
Overall, not a bad textbook. Radioactivity and Nuclear Chemistry 22. It allows students to easily highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place—even when offline. The revision has been constructed to easily incorporate material for instructors and students to engage in Before, During, and After class activities. The work and materials from this site should never be made available to students except by instructors using the accompanying text in their classes. An advisory board of Material Chemists consulted with the author to provide professional insight into chapter discussions. Transition Metals and Coordination Compounds About the Author s Nivaldo Tro received his Ph.
Below are suggested uses of the various tools in this edition. I almost forgot I had finally finished this book. Also available with MasteringChemistry MasteringChemistry from Pearson is the leading online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results by engaging you before, during, and after class with powerful content. In the twocolumn format, the left column shows the student how to analyze the problem and devise a solution strategy. You can even integrate your own writing if you wish.
Twice as many MasteringChemistry end-of-chapter questions with wrong answer specific feedback appear in each chapter of this edition compared to the previous, giving students more opportunities to exercise critical thinking and make learning gains while practicing problem solving. Here's how it works: students complete a set of questions with a unique answer format that also asks them to indicate their confidence level. May not contain Access Codes or Supplements. The Quantum-Mechanical Model of the Atom 8. Also available with MasteringChemistry MasteringChemistry from Pearson is the leading online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results by engaging you before, during, and after class with powerful content. This is most notable in the case of bonding theory and the so-called expanded octet.
You can further master concepts after class through traditional and adaptive homework assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback. All textbook arrives within 5-7business days. Nivaldo Tro presents chemistry visually through multi-level images—macroscopic, molecular, and symbolic representations—helping readers see the connections between the world they see around them macroscopic , the atoms and molecules that compose the world molecular , and the formulas they write down on paper symbolic. They are all avid fans of the Ottawa Senators and enjoy busy, active lives that include outdoor activities, such as shovelling snow good old Newfoundland. In seeking to develop problem-solving skills, a consistent approach is applied Sort, Strategize, Solve, and Check , usually in a two- or three-column format. The second chapter covers organic reactivity, and it is organized according to reaction mechanisms.
