From the Publisher:

Chapters begin with a societal-technological issue that forms the context of the chapter. Chemical principles are then embedded within the context of that issue. Because learning begins with curiosity, not mere statement of facts, this approach teaches fundamental concepts and chemical principles required to respond to the problem on a need-to-know basis throughout the chapter.
Wide variety of embedded in-chapter question types: Your Turn (basic review, more traditional), Consider This (critical thinking), and Sceptical Chymist (analytical reasoning), which also include questions that directly use the world-wide web.

The questions are plentiful and varied. They range from simpler practice exercises focusing on traditional chemical principles to those requiring more thorough analysis and integration of applications. Some of the questions are the basis for small group work, class discussions, or individual projects.

Web-based exercises routinely ask students to compare and evaluate data and commentary about a topic from a variety of sources on the world-wide web.

Issues raised in the Consider This and Sceptical Chymist questions demand correct information and clear communication to form and present an informed opinion.
Enlarged and revised selection of chapter-end questions (50 per chapter), categorized as Emphasizing Essentials, Concentrating on Concepts, and Exploring Extensions, some of which also use the world-wide web. By having the ability to select questions that are appropriate to their particular class, professors can customize the emphasis and approach they want students to take in learning a given chapter.
The first four to six chapters serve as a core, with additional chapters selected as time and interests dictate. With this flexibility in coverage, professors can customize their course to fit their and their students' interests. The choice of topics is rich and diverse.
New web-based activities integrated throughout to help students develop critical thinking and analytical problem-solving skills, as well as to maintain currency of materials.
Green Chemistry principles are introduced and used repeatedly to demonstrate creative contemporary chemical approaches to minimize and prevent technological difficulties.
The comprehensive Instructor's Resource Guide is a compendium of items useful for those teaching Chemistry in Context for the first time, as well as for those with more experience. It includes answers to in-chapter and chapter-end questions, sample syllabi, tests, and daily diaries of users.
