About the book

For courses in General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry (2 - Semester)

A Clear, Flexible Approach to Chemistry for the Modern Classroom

Active learning, an increased focus on clinical examples, updates based on current teaching and research findings, and digital innovations designed to engage and personalize students’ experience make Fundamentals of General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry simply the best choice for students with a future in allied health.

With the Eighth Edition, the authors make learning chemistry a more active experience through features designed to get students doing chemistry. Every chapter features Hands on Chemistry sections that deepen students’ understanding of chemistry by having them perform elementary experiments with everyday household items. Group Problems at the end of every chapter are designed for in-class use and motivate students toward higher level thinking, such as how concepts fit together and how to apply these concepts in a clinical application. All of the chapter openers, including many of the Chemistry in Action boxes and end-of-chapter problems, have been rewritten for a stronger clinical focus that provides more relevance to allied health majors.

New to this edition
  • Group Problems at the end of every chapter are ideally used in class to get students to a higher-level of thinking, such as how concepts fit together, or how to put the concepts they have learned to use in a clinical application.
  • Hands on Chemistry boxes offer students an opportunity to solidify their understanding of chemistry through elementary experiments that can be safely done in their living spaces with household items. Students who learn from kinesthetic activities will benefit from the hands-on aspect of the experiments.
