Teach the course your way with INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY. Available in three flexible formats (a standard paperbound edition, a loose-leaf edition, and a hybrid edition). This text allows you to tailor the order of chapters to accommodate your particular needs, not only by presenting topics so they never assume prior knowledge but also by including any and all necessary preview or review information needed to learn that topic. The authors' question-and-answer presentation allows students to actively learn chemistry while studying an assignment. This approach is reflected in three words of advice and encouragement that are repeated throughout the book: Learn It Now! This edition integrates new features such as outstanding technological resources, coached problems in a two-column format, and enhanced art and photography, all of which dovetail with the authors' active learning approach. Even more flexibility is provided in the new edition by the Cengage YouBook, an electronic version of the text that features interactivity, integrated media, and additional algebra coverage.
