The gold standard in analytical chemistry, Dan Harris’ Quantitative Chemical Analysis provides a sound physical understanding of the principles of analytical chemistry and their applications in the disciplines.
This title prepares students to become informed consumers of quantitative information with coverage that balances discussions of ideas with computational practice. Through a wide range of examples and applications, the authors show students that they use maths in their everyday lives more than they realise, so students can learn maths in real-world contexts. Students develop the critical thinking and problem solving skills to make intelligent decisions regarding money, voting, politics, health issues, and much more.
Introduction to the Practice of Statistics is the classic textbook for teaching statistics. This textbook shows students how to produce and interpret data from real-world contexts, guiding them through the type of data gathering and analysis that working statisticians do every day. With this phenomenally successful approach developed by David Moore and George McCabe, statistics is more than just a collection of techniques and formulas. Instead, students develop a way of thinking about data with a focus on problem-solving that helps them understand concepts and master statistical reasoning. Part of the best-selling Moore family of statistics books, Introduction to the Practice of Statistics is designed for a two-semester ‘introduction to statistics’ course and offers a rigorous introduction to the subject. This textbook is available on LaunchPad, which combines an interactive ebook with multimedia content and assessment tools, including LearningCurve adaptive quizzing. See ‘Instructor Resources’ and ‘Student Resources’ for further information.
