A Concise Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry strengthens the evidenced strategy of integrating general, organic, and biological chemistry for a focused introduction to the fundamental connections between chemistry and life. The streamlined approach offers readers a clear path through the content over a single semester. The Third Edition integrates essential topics more effectively than any text on the market, covering core concepts in each discipline in just 12 comprehensive chapters. Practical connections and applications show readers how to use their understanding of chemistry in everyday life and future health professions. With an emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking, the book promotes active and attentive learning, which now include NEW! media assets, Practicing the Concepts. Featuring coauthor Todd Deal, these 3 to 5 minute videos explore key concepts in general, organic, and biological chemistry that readers traditionally find difficult. Readers gain skills and deepen their knowledge as they watch the videos and then practice what they have learned with Pause & Predict problems and a series of follow up multiple-choice questions. The Third Edition places a greater emphasis on matching what professors teach in the classroom by increasing the coverage of biochemical applications in each chapter. A new design was created to highlight the career content in order to increase relevancy. Also available as a Pearson eText or packaged with Mastering Chemistry Pearson eText is a simple-to-use, mobile-optimized, personalized reading experience that can be adopted on its own as the main course material. It lets students highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place, even when offline. Seamlessly integrated videos and other rich media engage students and give them access to the help they need, when they need it. Educators can easily share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their eText and what they learn in class – motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning. Mastering combines trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform to personalize the learning experience and improve results for each student. Built for, and directly tied to the text, Mastering Chemistry enables an extension of learning, allowing students a platform to practice, learn, and apply outside of the classroom.

Evolving Nature of Objectivity in the History of Science and its Implications for Science Education

This book explores the evolving nature of objectivity in the history of science and its implications for science education. It is generally considered that objectivity, certainty, truth, universality, the scientific method and the accumulation of experimental data characterize both science and science education. Such universal values associated with science may be challenged while studying controversies in their original historical context. The scientific enterprise is not characterized by objectivity or the scientific method, but rather controversies, alternative interpretations of data, ambiguity, and uncertainty. Although objectivity is not synonymous with truth or certainty, it has eclipsed other epistemic virtues and to be objective is often used as a synonym for scientific. Recent scholarship in history and philosophy of science has shown that it is not the experimental data (Baconian orgy of quantification) but rather the diversity / plurality in a scientific discipline that contributes toward understanding objectivity. History of science shows that objectivity and subjectivity can be considered as the two poles of a continuum and this dualism leads to a conflict in understanding the evolving nature of objectivity. The history of objectivity is nothing less than the history of science itself and the evolving and varying forms of objectivity does not mean that one replaced the other in a sequence but rather each form supplements the others. This book is remarkable for its insistence that the philosophy of science, and in particular that discipline’s analysis of objectivity as the supposed hallmark of the scientific method, is of direct value to teachers of science. Meticulously, yet in a most readable way, Mansoor Niaz looks at the way objectivity has been dealt with over the years in influential educational journals and in textbooks; it’s fascinating how certain perspectives fade, while basic questions show no sign of going away. There are few books that take both philosophy and education seriously – this one does! Roald Hoffmann, Cornell University, chemist, writer and Nobel Laureate in Chemistry
