Description

For two-semester general chemistry courses (science majors).


McMurry/Fay/Robinson’s Chemistry aims to help students understand the connections between topics in general chemistry and why they matter. The 7th Edition provides a concise and streamlined narrative that blends the quantitative and visual aspects of chemistry, demonstrates the connections between topics, and illustrates the application of chemistry to their lives and careers. New content offers a better bridge between organic and biochemistry and general chemistry content, and new and improved pedagogical features make the text a true teaching tool rather than just a reference book.

About the Text

 

Keep your course current and relevant

  • REVISED! Inquiry Sections now include worked examples and/or practice problems enabling students to directly apply the concepts and skills they‘ve learned throughout the chapter to topics that connect the material to issues in their daily lives.
  • REVISED! Table of Contents creates more uniform themes within chapters and a more coherent progression of concepts that build on one another.
  • NEW! Chapter on Organic and Biological Chemistry introduces students to useful nomenclature and skills that must be mastered early in an organic chemistry course. In the new version of Chapter 23, students no longer movethrough rote descriptions of groups of organic compounds but instead learn about them in the context of conceptual lessons, many of which revisit ideas introduced in prior chapters (especially concepts of structure and bonding introduced in Chapters 7 and 8).
  • NEW! Heavily expanded coverage of atmospheric topics has been added to the chapters on gases. Well-known environmental chemist Andy Jorgensen from the University of Toledo contributed significantly to this chapter by helping add content recommended by the ACS that includes the topic of climate change and reinforces key chemical concepts of bonding, polarity, equilibrium, kinetics, etc. within the context atmospheric chemistry
  • NEW! Figure It Out feature. Selected figures include optional questions designed to get students to look at each illustration more carefully and recognize general lessons offered in each figure.  Answers to Figure it Out questions are inverted directly beneath the figure to encourage students to answer first without assistance before easily being able to check their response.
  • NEW! Chapter Study Guide offers a modern and innovative way for students to review each chapter. Prepared in a grid format, the main lessons of each chapter are reiterated and linked to learning objectives, associated worked examples, and representative end-of-chapter problems. The new format allows students to refresh recollection, identify the most crucial worked examples, and test their understanding and skills all in one place.

Emphasize the connection between chemical reasoning and math

  • NEW! Extension of worked examples help students move away from memorization as a primary problem-solving method by explicitly showing them the relationship between similar but related concepts and procedures, while facilitating their ability to recognize and respond to these challenges.

 

The text and the technology assets of MasteringChemistry® are designed to work in tandem, to create a seamless learning suite to supporting student learning before, during and after class.

 

MasteringChemistry is not included. Students, if MasteringChemistry is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MasteringChemistry should only be

purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for

more information.

 

MasteringChemistry from Pearson is the leading online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results by engaging students before, during, and after class with powerful content. Instructors ensure students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class, and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics. Students can further master concepts after class through traditional and adaptive homework assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback. The Mastering gradebook records scores for all automatically graded assignments in one place, while diagnostic tools give instructors access to rich data to assess student understanding and misconceptions.

 

Mastering brings learning full circle by continuously adapting to each student and making learning more personal than ever–before, during, and after class.

 

Before Class

  • NEW! Dynamic Study Modules Now assignable, Dynamic Study Modules (DSMs) enable your students to study on their own and be better prepared to understand class material. When your students use DSMs outside of class to develop their math and chemistry skills you can spend precious class time on higher-order learning and problem solving. The mobile app is available for iOS and Android devices for study on the go.

During Class

  • NEW! Learning Catalytics™ is an interactive, classroom tool that uses students’ smartphones, tablets, or laptops to engage them in more sophisticated tasks and thinking. Now included with Mastering with eText, Learning Catalytics enables you to generate classroom discussion, guide your lecture, and promote peer-to-peer learning with real-time analytics. Instructors, you can:
    • Pose a variety of open-ended questions that help your students develop critical thinking skills
    • Monitor responses to find out where students are struggling
    • Use real-time data to adjust your instructional strategy and try other ways of engaging your students during class
    • Manage student interactions by automatically grouping students for discussion, teamwork, and peer-to-peer learning

After Class

  • NEW! MasteringChemistry activities are integrated throughout.
    • Inquiry Activities from the text are integrated into Mastering as gradeable items.
    • Video Tutor Solutions walk students through the problem solving process in the author’s own voice.
  • NEW! Adaptive Follow-Up Assignments allow instructors to deliver content to students–automatically personalized for each individual based on the strengths and weaknesses identified by his or her performance on initial Mastering assignments.
  • NEW! Interactive Simulations cover some of the most difficult chemistry concepts and are assignable. Written by leading authors in simulation development, these increase students’ understanding of chemistry and clearly illustrate cause-and-effect relationships.

Emphasise the connection between chemical reasoning and math

  • NEW! Extension of worked examples help students move away from memorisation as a primary problem-solving method by explicitly showing them the relationship between similar but related concepts and procedures, while facilitating their ability to recognise and respond to these challenges.
  • McMurry/Fay/Robinson presents chemical concepts within the context of quantitative discussions to bring in to sharp focus the connection between chemical reasoning and math. Three types of problems are designed to help students apply solid chemical reasoning to solving problems:
    • In-chapter Conceptual Worked Examples give students their first exposure to working through problems on a conceptual level.
    • In-chapter Conceptual Problems give students an immediate opportunity to solve problems that test their understanding of chemical concepts.
    • End-of-chapter Conceptual Problems give students an opportunity to test that they understand all of the major concepts in the chapter before moving on to the multi-concept problems that require this understanding.

Student friendly pedagogy

  • Many of the graphics are annotated, reflecting what an instructor would say to a student in order to help them understand the concept more clearly. These are set off in a different font from the figure captions so that students can readily locate this information.
  • Topic Connections that begin with “Remember…” explain how individual topics are related, and give sufficient information so students either don’t have to “flip back”, or know when they should.
