Introductory Chemistry develops a unique systematic approach to problem solving using Solutions Maps and multi-column Procedure-Example boxes. This aptly paced and consistently logical approach will guide the anxious and inexperienced students in this course through the process of solving chemical problems. Problem solving skills are emphasized throughout each chapter, developed through many in-chapter examples, reviewed in unique chapter summaries, and practiced and synthesized in end-of-chapter exercises. The molecular art is groundbreaking in this market -- student visualization is greatly enhanced. Integrated applications make the chemistry lively and interesting. This text focuses on the development of basic chemical principles including chemical bonding, atomic structure, and gas laws.
