Distinguished by its superior allied health focus and integration of technology, Seager and Slabaugh's INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY FOR TODAY, Seventh Edition continues to meet students' needs through diverse applications, examples, boxes, and outstanding technology tools. Prompts throughout the new edition lead students to OWL (web-based learning system) -- two unique online programs that extend the lessons of the text and help students study smarter. In addition to the many resources found in OWL, the book and website contain questions modeled after the Nursing School and Allied Health Entrance Exams. INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY FOR TODAY dispels students' inherent fear of chemistry and instills an appreciation for the role chemistry plays in our daily lives through a rich pedagogical structure and an accessible writing style with lucid explanations. In addition, the book provides greater support in both problem-solving and critical-thinking skills -- the skills necessary for student success. By demonstrating the importance of chemistry concepts to students' future careers and by providing important career information online, the authors not only help students set goals but also help them focus on achieving them. This textbook is identical to the longer book by this author called General, Organic, and Biochemistry with these exceptions: it contains fewer chapters and those chapters are numbered differently than they are in the longer book. OWL does not have a separate course (with the eBook or without eBook) for the shorter book, so links on this page to purchase access will take you to the longer book.

Teach the course your way with INTRODUCTORY CHEMISTRY, 6e. Available in multiple formats (standard paperbound edition, loose-leaf edition, digital MindTap Reader edition, and a hybrid edition, which includes OWLv2), 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 necessary preview or review information needed to learn that topic. The authors’ question-and-answer presentation, which allows students to actively learn chemistry while studying an assignment, is reflected in three words of advice and encouragement that are repeated throughout the book: Learn It Now! This edition integrates new 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 MindTap Reader edition, an electronic version of the text that features interactivity, integrated media, additional self-test problems, and clickable key terms and answer buttons for worked examples.

Building a Foundation with an Integrated Learning Experience. At its core, Introductory Chemistry is the result of a unique author vision to develop a robust combination of text and digital resources that motivate and build student confidence while providing a foundation for their success. Kevin Revell knows and understands students today. His thoughtful narrative/video/interactive program works seamlessly to provide the most accessible and engaging set of resources for introductory chemistry available. The same author voice is mirrored in all print and digital content, allowing students flexibility and ensuring a fully supported learning experience--whether using a book or going completely digital! Building a Foundation for Retention and Success. Introductory Chemistry introduces students to chemistry with an exceptionally engaging writing style that not only promotes understanding but uses devices like storytelling and analogies to help students learn at a deeper level and retain concepts. Interactive activities and online tutorials offer students targeted, hands-on practice with the most difficult concepts in the course and provide a foundation for conceptual understanding and problem solving skills. Moving from comprehension to retention, students solidify their understanding of material to the point where they just "know it." Building a Foundation... Your Way! Written and developed as a flexible print and digital resource, Introductory Chemistry is designed to serve as a teaching and learning tool to meet instructors and students where they are today and provide support and tools tailored to various learning and teaching styles. Introductory Chemistry comes with a full suite of traditional textbook and lecture resources to support a traditional lecture-based course, as well as resources that make the transition to a more active classroom easier for instructors interested in doing so. Instructors who already subscribe to active learning techniques will also find tools to complement their efforts. Students can choose to access the content in the learning environment that best fits their needs: the printed narrative and pedagogy, the eBook and interactive digital tools, the video lecture modules, or a combination.
Steve Russo and Mike Silver turn chemistry into a memorable story that engages readers and provides the context they need to understand and remember core concepts. The book builds interesting applications and well-designed illustrations into the narrative to get and hold attention, then builds confidence with integrated active learning activities. Readers make the connections between concepts and the problem-solving techniques they need to master as they read. The new edition strengthens this conceptual approach and presents additional quantitative techniques in key areas. Readers will find enhanced support for quantitative problem-solving and more challenging questions at the end of each chapter, in addition to the wealth of technology-based support on The Chemistry Place(tm), Special Edition and on The Chemistry of Life CD-ROM. For college instructors and students.

The Sixth Edition of Introductory Chemistry: A Foundation offers unparalleled teaching and learning resources, with a robust technology package, in addition to the superior problem-solving pedagogy, engaging writing style, and strong emphasis on everyday applications that comprise the hallmarks of this best-selling text. Chemical reactions are covered early, to capture student interest, leaving more abstract material for later chapters.The authors explain chemical concepts by starting with the basics, using symbols or diagrams, and concluding by encouraging students to test their own comprehension of the solution. This step-by-step approach helps students develop critical problem-solving skills. Also, the accessible explanations and visualizations throughout the text motivate students and engage them in the material by helping them to connect abstract chemical principles to real-life experiences. The pedagogy includes chapter-opening discussions that introduce students to relevant applications and Chemistry in Focus boxes that describe everyday applications of chemistry such as artificial sweeteners, foaming chewing gum, and fake fats. Current applications appear throughout the text with easy-to-understand explanations and analogies.
