2. Chemical bonding [2016]

Book
viii, 119 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm.
The renowned Oxford Chemistry Primers series, which provides focused introductions to a range of important topics in chemistry, has been refreshed and updated to suit the needs of today's students, lecturers, and postgraduate researchers. The rigorous, yet accessible, treatment of each subject area is ideal for those wanting a primer in a given topic to prepare them for more advanced study or research. The learning features provided, including questions at the end of every chapter and online multiple-choice questions, encourage active learning and promote understanding. Furthermore, frequent diagrams, margin notes, and glossary definitions all help to enhance a student's understanding of these essential areas of chemistry. Chemical bonding gives a clear and succinct explanation of this fundamental topic, which underlies the structure and reactivity of all molecules, and therefore the subject of chemistry itself. Little prior knowledge or mathematical ability is assumed, making this the perfect text to introduce students to the subject.

Written for calculus-inclusive general chemistry courses, "Chemical Principles "helps students develop chemical insight by showing the connections between fundamental chemical ideas and their applications. Unlike other texts, it begins with a detailed picture of the atom then builds toward chemistry s frontier, continually demonstrating how to solve problems, think about nature and matter, and visualize chemical concepts as working chemists do. It also offers an exceptional level of support to help students develop their mathematical and problem-solving skills. For the new edition, "Chemical Principles" now takes a modular approach, with coverage organized as a series of brief Topics within 11 major areas of focus, including a refresher on the fundamentals of chemistry and an online-only section on techniques.".

The Spencer text is the only text that is built on independently researched pedagogy on the best way to teach General Chemistry. Chemistry: Structure and Dynamics, 5 th Edition emphasises deep understanding rather than comprehensive coverage along with a focus on the development of inquiry and reasoning skills. While most mainstream General Chemistry texts offer a breadth of content coverage, the Spencer author team, in contrast, focuses on depth and student preparation for future studies. The fifth edition is revised in keeping with our commitment to the chemical education community and specifically the POGIL (Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning) Project. This text reflects two core principles, first that the concepts that are covered are fundamental building blocks for understanding chemistry and second, that the concepts should be perceived by the students as being directly applicable to their interests and careers. The authors further provide this "core" coverage using 1 of 3 models; data-driven, chemical theories and students understanding, which allows for a more concrete foundation on which students build conceptual understanding.

Physics is a complex, even daunting topic, but it is also deeply satisfying even thrilling. And liberated from its mathematical underpinnings, physics suddenly becomes accessible to anyone with the curiosity and imagination to explore its beauty. Science without math? It's not that unusual. For example, we can understand the concept of gravity without solving a single equation. So for all those who may have pondered what makes blueberries blue and strawberries red; for those who have wondered if sound really travels in waves; and why light behaves so differently from any other phenomenon in the universe, it's all a matter of quantum physics. "Absolutely Small" presents (and demystifies) the world of quantum science like no book before. It explores scientific concepts from particles of light, to probability, to states of matter, to what makes greenhouse gases bad in considerable depth, but using examples from the everyday world. Challenging without being intimidating, accessible but not condescending, "Absolutely Small" develops the reader's intuition for the very nature of things at their most basic and intriguing levels.

The organization of the text treats chemistry as an experimental subject by beginning with observable, macroscopic chemistry and later moving to the quantum mechanical theory that provides the underpinning of modern chemistry.

This introductory text has been revised and updated to include a number of features that strengthen its emphasis on visualization, problem-solving and applications. All elements of the package - the text, CD-ROM, Web site and other supplements - work together to help students see the connections between the visible and molecular world, and understand how chemical knowledge is used to solve problems affecting all aspects of human life. The Student CD-ROM, developed with Sumanas, and CADRE (Roy Tasker, University of Sydney Nepean) is packaged with each copy of the text. It contains a number of features, including updated and expanded animations and simulations: Atomic Orbitals and Equilibrium, Stoichiometry, Ions in Solutions and Gas Law. Other electronic features include: nomenclature exercises; textbook animations; Q&A chapter self-quizzes; videos; a molecule database using Molecular Simulations Inc. (MSI) WebLab Viewer TM; Periodic Table visual database; curve fitter; plotter; and six calculators. There is also an on-line companion which, for students serves as as an electronic chapter-by-chapter study guide, with: chapter objectives; flash card exercises; interactive exercises and chapter self-quizzes; and four intensive practice tests.
