Make critical connections in chemistry clear and visible
McMurry/Fay/Robinson’s Chemistry, Seventh Edition, aims to help students understand the connections between topics in general chemistry and why they matter. The Seventh Edition provides a concise and streamlined narrative that blends the quantitative and visual aspects of chemistry, demonstrates the connections between topics, and illustrates the application of chemistry to their lives and careers. New content offers a better bridge between organic and biochemistry and general chemistry content, and new and improved pedagogical features make the text a true teaching tool rather than just a reference book.
New MasteringChemistry features include conceptual worked examples and integrated Inquiry sections that help make critical connections clear and visible and increase students’ understanding of chemistry. The Seventh Edition fully integrates the text with new MasteringChemistry content and functionality to support the learning process before, during, and after class.
MasteringChemistry from Pearson is the leading online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results by engaging students before, during, and after class with powerful content. Instructors ensure students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class, and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics. Students can further master concepts after class through traditional and adaptive homework assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback. The Mastering gradebook records scores for all automatically graded assignments in one place, while diagnostic tools give instructors access to rich data to assess student understanding and misconceptions.
Mastering brings learning full circle by continuously adapting to each student and making learning more personal than ever–before, during, and after class.

John McMurry, educated at Harvard and Columbia, has taught more than 20,000 students in general and
organic chemistry over a 40-year period. An emeritus Professor of Chemistry at Cornell University, Dr. McMurry
previously spent 13 years on the faculty at the University of California at Santa Cruz. He has received numerous awards, including the Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship (1969—71), the National Institute of Health Career Development Award (1975—80), the Alexander von Humboldt Senior Scientist Award (1986—87), and the Max Planck Research Award (1991). With the publication of this new edition, he has now authored or coauthored 34 textbooks in various fields of chemistry.
Robert C. Fay, Professor Emeritus at Cornell University, taught general and inorganic chemistry at Cornell
for 45 years beginning in 1962. Known for his clear, well organized lectures, Dr. Fay was the 1980 recipient of the Clark Distinguished Teaching Award. He has also taught as a visiting professor at Harvard University and the University of Bologna (Italy). A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Oberlin College, Dr. Fay received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois. He has been an NSF Science Faculty Fellow at the University of East Anglia and the University of Sussex (England) and a NATO/Heineman Senior Fellow at Oxford
Jill Robinson received her Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Colorado at Boulder where she developed a portable instrument for measuring nitric oxide in exhaled breath as an indicator of pulmonary inflammation. She is currently a Senior Lecturer in Chemistry at Indiana University and has taught thousands of students in general, environmental, and analytical chemistry courses. Active learning strategies such as group discussions, student response systems, and student-directed lab projects are always used in her classes to engage students and improve learning. She has developed laboratory materials for the analytical sciences digital library website and enjoys bringing cutting edge nanoscience to local schools and science museums in a program called Molecules Matter (M2). She has received numerous awards including, the Student Choice Award from the University of Wyoming Honors College, Indiana University Board of Trustees Award for Excellence in Teaching, and the Indiana University President’s Award for Distinguished Teaching. She also serves as faculty advisor for several student organizations and as an academic mentor for student athletes. In her free time, she likes running, reading, and spending time with her family.
