Introduction to Basic Chemistry, International Edition
The Seventh Edition of INTRODUCTION TO BASIC CHEMISTRY, 7e, International Edition includes the first 16 chapters of INTRODUCTION TO CHEMISTRY: A FOUNDATION, 7e, International Edition. This new edition of Zumdahl/Decoste's best-seller features a more explicit problem-solving pedagogy to help students develop critical thinking tools they can use in the introductory course and beyond. Capturing student interest through early coverage of chemical reactions, accessible explanations and visualizations, and an emphasis on everyday applications, the authors explain chemical concepts by starting with the basics, using symbols or diagrams, and concluding by encouraging students to test their own understanding of the solution. This step-by-step approach has already helped hundreds of thousands of students master chemical concepts and develop problem-solving skills. The book is known for its focus on conceptual learning and for the way it motivates students by connecting chemical principles to real-life experiences in chapter-opening discussions and Chemistry in Focus boxes. The Seventh Edition now adds a questioning pedagogy to in-text examples to help students learn what questions they should be asking themselves while solving problems, offers a revamped art program to better serve visual learners, and includes a significant number of revised end-of-chapter questions. The book's unsurpassed teaching and learning resources include a robust technology package that is now fully supported by OWL: Online Web Learning.
