This text fosters a conceptual understanding of chemical properties and principles. The authors present all of the information as a coherent package with clear, logical treatments of key topics and smooth transitions between sections and chapters. The periodic table and periodicity are used throughout as a unifying theme and as a framework on which to build greater understanding of chemical behavior and trends. Problem-solving is emphasized as a vehicle to a deeper understanding of principles rather than simply as an activity in formula memorization.From the Back Cover:
Insofar as possible, distractions within the text are minimized. Each chapter is broken into numerous sections to provide frequent breathers, and each section has a consistent format. Sections generally begin with an explanation of their subject, move to an Example problem that shows how to work with the material, and end with one or more Practice Problems for the reader to work through. Each chapter ends with a brief Interlude that describes an interesting application or extension of the chapter subject.
