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.
