Designed primarily for the one-semester GOB course, Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, & Biological Chemistry w/MasteringChemistry(tm) Student Access Kit, continues to lead the market with its clear and friendly writing style and real-world health related applications that students can relate to. This new package introduces more problem-solving strategies and new conceptual and challenge problems, as well as each Chapter Review being enhanced with Learning Goals to reinforce the mastery of concepts for students. This package also includes the award winning MasteringChemistry(tm), the most advanced chemistry homework and tutorial system available. This online homework and tutoring system utilizes the Socratic Method to coach students through problem-solving techniques, offering hints and simpler questions on request. It tutors students individually with feedback specific to their errors. MasteringChemistry helps students learn, not just practice. Key Topics Covered in this Package Include: Measurements, Atoms and Elements, Nuclear Radiation, Compounds and Their Bonds, Chemical Reactions and Quantities, Energy and Matter, Gases, Solutions, Acids and Bases, Introduction to Organic Chemistry, Unsaturated Hydrocarbons, Organic Compounds with Oxygen and Sulfur, Carboxylic Acids, Esters, Amines, and Amides, Carbohydrates, Lipids, Amino Acids, Proteins, and Enzymes, Nucleic Acids and Protein Synthesis, Metabolic Pathways and Energy Production. Special Features Include: Students using MasteringChemistry tutorials make 15% fewer errors, solve problems 15% faster and perform better on exams. Immediate and specific feedback on wrong answers coach students individually. Specific feedback on common errors helps explain why a particular answer is not correct. Hints provide individualized coaching. Skip the hints you don't need and access only the ones that you need, for the most efficient path to the correct solution. Award winning author Karen Timberlake, has 36 years of in-class expertise, and her teaching materials have sold over 1 million copies! Health, Environmental, and Green Chemistry Notes throughout the text relate chemistry chapters to real-life topics in health, the environment, and medicine that are interesting and motivating to students. Understanding the Concept questions at the end of each chapter to test students' understanding of the basic ideas of chemistry rather than just the math facility in working quantitative problems. Sample Problems with Study Checks help students read, recognize, set up, and solve numerous problem types, while developing critical thinking skills and building confidence before moving on to other topics. Tutorial content tested by thousands of students. During testing, we capture all student answer submissions and write/rewrite hints and feedback for their most common actual wrong answers. As a result, MasteringChemistry addresses not just where Chemistry instructors expect students to go wrong, but where they actually do go wrong. Concept Maps, now found at the end of each chapter, give students a big picture overview of concepts and how they connect to each other. Macro-to-Micro art illustrations visually connect the real-life world with atomic-level representations. Explore Your World hands-on activities in each chapter make chemistry exciting, relevant, and non-threatening to students. Media icons direct students to tutorials and case studies on The Chemistry Place website. What students/instructors say about utilizing MasteringChemistry with their textbooks: Overall, students who completed assignments from MasteringChemistryscored 24% higher on exams than those who did not-Online Administrator, University of Nebraska-Lincoln MasteringChemistry has definitely been an amazing experience for me. MasteringChemistry is so easy to use, any high schooler can easily understand it. The preparations in the beginning of the program, where it teaches you how to input answers, were very informative-Student,University of California, Davis Over half of my class has test averages above 70% and that has never happened before. The students say the homework and tutorials are really helpful-Professor, Colorado State University Pueblo About Professor Karen Timberlake: Karen Timberlake, heralded professor emeritus of chemistry at Los Angeles Valley College, taught chemistry for allied health and preparatory chemistry for 36 years. She received her bachelor's degree in chemistry from the University of Washington and her Master's degree in biochemistry from the University of California at Los Angeles. During that time, her name has become associated with the strategic use of learning tools that promote student success in chemistry and the application of chemistry to real-life situations. More than one million students have learned chemistry using texts, laboratory manuals, and study guides written by Karen Timberlake. Professor Timberlake belongs to numerous science and educational organizations including the American Chemical Society (ACS) and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). She was a Western Regional Winner of Excellence in College Chemistry Teaching Award given by the Chemical Manufacturers Association. In 2004, she received the McGuffey Award in Physical Sciences from the Text and Academic Authors Association, and in 2006, she received the Textbook Excellence Award. She also speaks frequently at conferences and educational meetings on the use of student-centered teaching methods in chemistry to promote the learning success of students.
