Welcome to the Leading Edge in General Chemistry Education! Developed by three members of the American Chemical Society's Task Force on the General Chemistry Curriculum, this innovative text represents an exciting new approach to teaching General Chemistry. It gives you the flexible materials you need to build a custom curriculum appropriate for your students. The Core/Modular Structure The Preliminary Edition of Chemistry consists of a short core text and a separate volume with various modules. This unique Core/Modules approach offers you maximum flexibility in structuring your course: The Core provides the fundamental concepts and principles that all students need to prepare them for the various degree programs for which general chemistry is a prerequisite. It contains all fundamental concepts found in traditional texts without the distraction of additional material. The authors develop core concepts using concrete models, then illustrate them with practical applications relevant to students' experience. The Modules present stand-alone chapters that can be added to customize the course to fit the needs and interests of the students being served. The chapter appendices extend the core material, and the stand-alone chapters introduce new topics, such as biochemistry, polymer chemistry, nuclear chemistry, and more. This arrangement also makes it easy to add your own material. The result is a complete course that is tailored to the specific make-up of your class. Some Other Outstanding Features of the Preliminary Edition: New models of chemical concepts not yet found in traditional texts introduce many chapters. Organic and biochemical examples are used throughout to provide a more balanced coverage of all areas of chemistry An increased emphasis on conceptual questions and problems at the end of the chapters- including problems that ask students to explain, describe, or suggest experiments- get students thinking like chemists. Major themes are used to link the core material into a unified whole. Feedback from users of this Preliminary Edition will influence the development of the First Edition, to be published in 1997.James N. Spencer is the author of 'Chemistry, Modular Chapters: Structure and Dynamics, Preliminary Edition', published 1995 under ISBN 9780471142782 and ISBN 0471142786.
