Ideal for the instructor who plans to use OWL, this Seventh Edition of Zumdahl and DeCoste's best-selling INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY: A FOUNDATION is now offered in this unique, value-based, paperbound edition. It includes access to OWL Online Web Learning (with eBook), along with all the best-selling content of INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY (with the exception of the end-of-chapter questions, which are included in OWL), giving students a lower price than they would pay if they purchased a used book and OWL separately. Designed to make chemistry interesting, understandable, and relevant for beginning students, this hybrid edition offers an expanded focus on problem solving, including a new section that shows students how to think their way through a problem using a creative, flexible approach based on understanding of the key ideas of chemistry. In addition, in most of the text's quantitative examples, the authors model the questions students should be asking themselves while solving problems. Known for its unique focus on conceptual learning, Zumdahl/DeCoste's text motivates students by connecting chemical principles to real-life experiences in chapter-opening discussions and "Chemistry in Focus" boxes.

The Seventh Edition of Zumdahl and DeCoste's best-selling INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY: A FOUNDATION that combines enhanced problem-solving structure with substantial pedagogy to enable students to become strong independent problem solvers 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 conclude 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 now offers a choice between OWL: Online Web Learning and Enhanced WebAssign.
The perfect way to prepare for exams, build problem-solving skills, and get the grade you want, this Study Guide includes chapter discussions, key-term definitions, and practice chapter tests.Lab Manual (ISBN-10: 0538736429 | ISBN-13: 9780538736428)
