For one-semester courses in General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry

A friendly, engaging text that reveals connections between chemistry, health, and the environment

Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, 13th Edition is the ideal resource for today’s allied health students. Assuming no prior knowledge of chemistry, author Karen Timberlake engages students with her friendly presentation style, revealing connections between the structure and behaviour of matter and its role in health and the environment. Aiming to provide a better teaching and learning experience for instructors and students, the text highlights the relevance of chemistry through real-world examples. Activities and applications throughout the program couple chemistry concepts with health and environmental career applications to help students understand why course content matters. The text also fosters development of problem-solving skills, while helping students visualise and understand concepts through its engaging figures, sample problems, and concept maps.

The 13th Edition expands on Karen Timberlake’s main tenets: relevance, a clinical focus, educational research, and learning design. New applications added to questions and problem sets emphasise the material’s relevance, while updated chapter openers with follow-up stories help students form a basis for making decisions about issues concerning health and the environment. New problem-solving tools in this edition, including Try It First and Connect, urge students to think critically about problem-solving while learning best practices.

Pearson MyLab™ is the world's leading online self-study, homework, tutorial and assessment product designed with a single purpose in mind: to improve the results of all higher education students, one student at a time.

Features & benefits
  • Clinical Updates continue the story and link Clinical Application Questions to the information in the Chapter Opener using new chapter content.
  • Clinical Applications identify clinically ­related study problems in each section of Questions and Problems.
  • Connect feature added to Analyse the Problem boxes indicates the relationships between Given and Need.
  • New topics in biochemistry have been introduced
  • Chapter-opening profiles show students how professionals working in diverse careers—such as nursing, physical therapy, dentistry, agriculture, and food science—use chemistry every day. These engaging articles draw students into each chapter, while helping them understand the applications of chemistry to a variety of future professions.
  • Explore Your World hands-on activities encourage students to explore selected chemistry topics using everyday materials, making chemistry exciting, relevant, and non-threatening.
  • Chemistry Links to Health and Environment throughout the text relate chemistry concepts to real-life topics in health, the environment, and medicine that interest students.
  • Integrated math remediation includes new Key Math Skills that review relevant basic math operations. A Key Math Skill Review at the end of each chapter summarises what was presented in the chapter and provides additional examples.
  • Core Chemistry Skills identify the key chemical principles in each chapter that are required to successfully learn chemistry. A new Core Chemistry Skill Review at the end of each chapter reinforces the material and helps students study.
  • Try It First features have been added to each Sample Problem, between the Question and the Solution. They remind students that the effort of attempting to solve a problem before looking at a solution helps to connect to newly learning ideas, practice retrieval of information, identify gaps in understanding, identify how ideas are related, and shows them how to change their approach to the problem in the future.
  • End-of-Chapter questions and problems have been reorganised in random order, rather than in the chapter sequence already available in each Section, to mix concepts and problem types, requiring students to identify (retrieve) knowledge sets as needed. This new reorganisation will promote learning patterns required for Combining Ideas, which are mixed questions and problems from two or more chapters.
  • Analyse the Problem features are included in the solutions to the Sample Problems to strengthen critical-thinking skills and to help students break down word problems into the components required to solve them.
  • Numerous Sample Problems in each chapter demonstrate the application of each new concept to problem solving. The worked-out solutions give step-by-step explanations, provide a problem-solving model, and illustrate required calculations. Each sample problem is followed by a study check question, for which the answer is given at the end of the chapter.
  • Questions and Problems at the close of each section allow students to apply problem-solving techniques to each concept just discussed.
  • Mini Concept Links (Concept Networks) diagrams at the end of each section show the connections between the concepts in that section and previous sections, and precede the complete Concept Map at the end of the Chapter, to build related knowledge sets for each section.
  • Engage questions in the margin next to new textual material are self quizzes that help the student associate new content with knowledge available in long-term memory. Students succeed when continually quizzed on new material, which practices the retrieval of new information.
  • Study Tips in each question section will include a suggestion that the student read and test from memory and check results, then repeat the reading a few days later and retest again. This is a way to include the idea from Make It Stick that when students repeat testing and connecting material, the recall on an exam is much improved.
  • Macro-to-micro art illustrations enable students to make connections between recognizable objects and their atomic-level representations, helping them to visualize chemistry in everyday life.
  • Revised Concept Maps at the end of select chapters provide a big-picture overview of concepts presented in the chapter and help students understand how these concepts connect to one another.
  • Understanding the Concepts questions at the end of each chapter provide visual representations that help students build an understanding of newly learned chemical concepts. They include questions that test students’ understanding of the basic ideas of chemistry rather than just their math skills in working quantitative problems.
  • Chapter Readiness sections at the beginning of each chapter list the Key Math Skills and Core Chemistry Skills from the previous chapters, which provide the foundation for new chemistry principles in the current chapter.
