Contemporary Chemistry: The Physical Setting
Maximize understanding of fundamental concepts in chemistry
Theoretical aspects of chemistry are emphasized and often presented within a laboratory-based context and then applied to everyday experiences—a useful and realistic balance among the theoretical, descriptive, and practical aspects of chemistry.
Each chapter begins with a concise description of the chapter’s purpose, content, and learning objectives. New vocabulary is introduced in easy-to-read language. Step-by-step solutions are followed by problem sets that enhance newly acquired skills.
End-of-chapter multiple-choice questions and constructed-response questions allow students to review and assess chapter content. A Chemistry Challenge section consists of SAT Subject Test-type questions. Taking a Closer Look presents additional or in-depth information for students who wish to pursue a topic in greater detail.
The Teacher Manual includes lesson plans, reading assignments, and homework assignments.
