Improve the problem-solving and critical thinking skills you need for success in your introductory chemistry course and beyond with INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY. 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.
