9780136003823: Introductory Chemistry

Introductory Chemistry, Third Edition is designed for a one-semester, introductory or preparatory chemistry course. Students taking this course need to develop problem-solving skills—but they also must see why these skills are important to them and to their world. Introductory Chemistry extends chemistry from the laboratory to the student’s world. It motivates students to learn chemistry by demonstrating how it plays out in their daily lives.

 

The third edition continues to employ Tro’s proven pedagogical features: the Solution Map provides a visual approach showing students how to think through a problem and formulate a solution strategy; the unique Three-Column Problem-Solving Procedures describe a problem-solving procedure while demonstrating how it is applied to two different examples. In addition, the Conceptual Checkpoint features now include questions that prompt students to visualize the molecular world around them.

 

Introductory Chemistry, Third Edition can be packaged with MasteringChemistry™, the most advanced chemistry homework and tutorial system available. This online homework and tutoring system utilizes the Socratic Method to coach students through problem-solving techniques, offering hints and simpler questions on request. It tutors students individually with feedback specific to their errors. MasteringChemistry™ helps students learn, not just practice.

About the Author:

Nivaldo Tro is currently chair of the department of chemistry at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California, where he has been a faculty member since 1990.   He received his Ph.D. in chemistry from Stanford University, for work on developing and using optical techniques to study the adsorption and desorption of molecules to and from surfaces in ultrahigh vacuum. He then went on to the University of California at Berkeley, where he did post-doctoral research on ultra-fast reaction dynamics in solution.  Since coming to Westmont, Professor Tro has been awarded grants from the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund, from Research Corporation, and from the National Science Foundation to study the dynamics of various processes occurring in thin adlayer films adsorbed on dielectric surfaces.   He has twice been honored as Westmont's outstanding teacher of the year and has also received the college's outstanding researcher of the year award.   

 

Nivaldo Tro lives in Santa Barbara with his wife, Ann, and their four children, Michael, Ali, Kyle, and Kaden. In his leisure time, Professor Tro enjoys reading good literature to his children and being outdoors with his family.
