Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, 13th Edition is the ideal resource for today’s allied health students. Assuming no prior knowledge of chemistry, author Karen Timberlake engages students with her friendly presentation style, revealing connections between the structure and behavior of matter and its role in health and the environment. Aiming to provide a better teaching and learning experience for instructors and students, the text highlights the relevance of chemistry through real-world examples. Activities and applications throughout the program couple chemistry concepts with health and environmental career applications to help students understand why course content matters. The text also fosters the development of problem-solving skills, while helping students visualize and understand concepts through its engaging figures, sample problems, and concept maps.

The 13th Edition expands on Karen Timberlake’s main tenets: relevance, a clinical focus, educational research, and learning design. New applications added to questions and problem sets emphasize the material’s relevance, while updated chapter openers with follow-up stories help students form a basis for making decisions about issues concerning health and the environment. New problem-solving tools in this edition, including Try it First and Connect, urge students to think critically about problem-solving while learning best practices.
