General Chemistry: Atoms First , Second Edition starts from the building blocks of chemistry, the atom, allowing the authors to tell a cohesive story that progresses logically through molecules and compounds to assist students intuitively follow complex concepts more logically. This unified thread of ideas helps students build a greater foundation and in the long run gain a deeper understanding of chemical concepts. Students can more easily be mindful the microscopic-to-macroscopic connections between unobservable atoms and the observable behavior of matter in day by day life, and are brought in an instant into real chemistry–as a substitute of being forced to memorize facts.
Reflecting a true atoms first viewpoint, the Second Edition features experienced atoms-first authors, comprises recommendations from a panel of atoms-first experts, and follows historical beliefs in teaching chemistry concepts based and real experimental data first. This approach distinguishes this text out there based whereby other authors teach theory first, followed by experimental data.
