With a renewed focus on critical thinking, conceptual engagement, and problem solving, this 8th Edition of the popular Introductory Chemistry: Concepts and Critical Thinking has been thoroughly revised to better engage today’s students, while equipping them with skills they need to succeed beyond the introductory chemistry course. Unique among introductory chemistry texts, this text and all of its supporting materials are written by sole author Chuck Corwin. His experience and passion guide students as they build confidence through innovative pedagogy, technology, and features designed to appeal to contemporary students. By presenting chemistry in a clear and interesting way, students leave their first chemistry course with a positive impression and the desire to learn more.
The 8th Edition has been updated and modernized with new, relevant examples, new features, and a revised design. Continuing with Introductory Chemistry: Concepts and Critical Thinking’s student-friendly approach, Chuck added features such as A Closer Look to provide insights and offer examples of misconceptions, Helpful Hints to provide coaching where students struggle most, and new chapter openers tied to elements in the periodic table to show students the connections all around them.
