Chemistry is widely considered to be the central science: it encompasses concepts on which all other branches of science are developed. Yet, for many students entering university, gaining a firm grounding in chemistry is a real challenge. Chemistry responds to this challenge, providing students with a full understanding of the fundamental principles of chemistry on which to build later studies. Uniquely amongst the introductory chemistry texts currently available, Chemistry is written by a team of chemists to give equal coverage of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry - coverage that is uniformly authoritative throughout. A special feature is the mechanistic approach to organic chemistry, rather than the old-fashioned 'functional group' approach. The author team is completed by two specialists in chemistry education who bring to the book a wealth of experience of teaching chemistry in a way that students enjoy and understand. The result is a text that builds on what students already know from school and tackles their misunderstandings and misconceptions, thereby providing a seamless transition from school to undergraduate study. The authors achieve unrivalled accessibility through the provision of carefully-worded explanations and reminders of what they already know; the introduction of concepts in a logical and progressive manner; and the use of annotated diagrams and step-by-step worked examples,. The unique use of context and photographs show how chemistry is applicable to everyday life, encouraging students to engage with the text and see the central role that chemistry plays in our lives. Chemistry tackles head-on two issues pervading chemistry education: the students' mathematical skills, and their ability to see the subject as a single, unified discipline. Instead of avoiding the maths, Chemistry provides structured support, in the form of careful explanations, reminders of key mathematical concepts, step-by-step calculations in worked examples, and a Maths Toolkit, to help students get to grips with the essential mathematical element of chemistry. Frequent cross-references highlight the connections between each strand of chemistry and explain the relationship between the topics so students can develop an understanding of the subject as a whole. Online Resource Centre: The following resources are available to provide a full teaching and learning package: Student resources * Interactive and animation-based activities which encourage students to actively learn * 3D rotatable molecular structures * Drag-n-drop exercises * Learning outcomes, summaries and key equations. * Student solutions manual. Lecturer resources * A 'test bank' of multiple choice questions * All the illustrations from the book available to download. * Lecturer's solutions manual.
