Chemistry: A Molecular Approach presents chemistry visually through multi-level images -- macroscopic, molecular, and symbolic representations -- to help your see the connections between the world, the atoms and molecules that compose the world, and the formulas you write down on paper. Interactive, digital versions of select worked examples instruct you how to break down problems using Nivaldo Tro's unique "Sort, Strategize, Solve, and Check" technique. Then you can complete a step in the example. To build conceptual understanding, Dr. Tro employs an active learning approach through interactive media that requires you to pause during videos to ensure understanding.

The 5th Edition pairs digital, pedagogical innovation with insights from learning design and educational research to create an active, integrated, and easy-to-use framework. The new edition introduces a fully integrated book and media package that streamlines course set up, actively engages you in becoming an expert problem solver.

When you choose a plan, you're signing up for a 4-month 'term'. You can opt to make a one-time payment for the initial 4-month term or pay monthly. If you opt for monthly payments, we will charge your payment method each month until your 4-month term has ended. You can turn on auto-renew in My account at any time to continue your subscription before your 4-month term has ended.

When you purchase a Pearson+ subscription, it will last 4 months. Before your initial 4-month term ends, you can extend your subscription by turning auto-renew on in My account.

If you turn auto-renew on, we’ll automatically renew your subscription and charge you every month until you turn off auto-renew. If you made a one-time payment for your initial 4-month term, you’ll now pay monthly.

To avoid the next payment charge, make sure you turn auto renewal off 1 day before the auto renewal date. You can subscribe again after auto-renew has been turned off by purchasing another Pearson+ subscription. We use your credit card to renew your subscription automatically. To make sure your learning is uninterrupted, please check your card details before your first monthly payment.
