Improve the problem-solving and critical thinking skills you need for success in your introductory chemistry course and beyond with BASIC CHEMISTRY, 8e. In-text examples help you learn what questions you should be asking yourself when solving problems, while the authors' proven, step-by-step approach and striking full color art program help you master chemical concepts. Almost all of the in-text examples are now "Interactive Examples" and available online. These computer-based examples throughout the text require students to think through the Example step-by-step rather than simply scan the written Example in the text as many students do. Chapter-opening discussions and "Chemistry in Focus" boxes describe everyday applications of chemistry to help you connect abstract chemical principles to your everyday experiences. New "Critical Thinking" boxes have been added at point-of-use throughout the text. A new end-of-chapter question section titled "ChemWork" has been added and these types of problems can be worked on online.
