, Second Edition, by Julia Burdge has been created to bridge the gap in the McGraw-Hill general chemistry offerings. This textbook offers a clear writing style written with the students in mind. Julia uses her background of teaching hundreds of general chemistry students per year and creates content to offer more detailed explanation on areas where she knows they have problems.
Sitting down with the art house, Julia Burdge worked with the artist to create the style and major art pieces in her text. Out of these discussions, came the creation of the Visualizing Art two-page spreads which detail a process for the students and provide them with the answer to "What is the Point?" Due the success of the art with students, this offering has been doubled in the second edition.
With outstanding art, a consistent problem-solving approach, interesting applications woven throughout the chapters, and a wide range of end-of-chapter problems, this is a great second edition text.

New to this Edition
Outstanding pedagogy for student learning. The CheckPoints, Rewind and Fast Forward Buttons are meant to enhance student understanding and comprehension by reinforcing current concepts and interconnecting new concepts to others throughout the text. Students are using and asking for more Checkpoints as a study tool. The author has added numerous new Checkpoint multiple-choice questions, many with visuals, testing the student's understanding of a concept.
Integrated media applications: animations, Media Player files, and ARIS. Animations have been built from the Visualizing Chemistry two-page art spreads stepping out a process for the student to visualize and learn. There are seven new animations for the second edition. The animations are narrated by the author, Julia Burdge and designated in the text by a Media Player icon. Other areas in the chapter where content is available for the student to download on their Media Player is also marked with an icon. More animations are also included and designated by an icon next to the appropriate content. Finally, end-of-chapter problems are within our ARIS electronic course management and electronic homework system.
NEW appendix-- Solubility Product Constants at 25 degrees C.
Consistent problem-solving skill development. Fostering a consistent approach to problem-solving provides the skill set for a student to master the basic of critical thinking. Each Sample Problem is followed by two practice problems. The practice problem allows the student to solve a problem using the steps in the Sample Problem. The second practice problem provides the student to solve the same basic problems from a different point of view.
Engaging real-life examples and applications. Each chapter is introduced and closed (bookends) by an interesting story of something familiar such as lasers and chemotherapy. Bringing Chemistry to Life is an integrated segment in the text which brings out such topics as Heat Capacity and Hypothermia or Catalysis and Hangovers. FAQ Boxes are answers to interesting "how to" questions to help the students succeed in studying and learning. What is Entropy Really?
Pre-Professional Exam Question at the end of every chapters' problems provides a question with 2-4 multiple choice answers at a higher level thinking skill base for student practice. The main question is based upon content presented in the chapter.
Content in Chapter 25 is on Modern Materials including polymer, ceramics and composite, liquid crystals, biomedical materials, nanotechnology, semiconductors, and superconductors.
McGraw-Hill's ARIS - Assessment, Review, and Instruction System for Chemistry by Julia Burdge is a complete electronic homework and course management system. Instructors can create and share course materials and assignments with colleagues with a few clicks of the mouse. All PowerPoint lectures, assignments, quizzes, and animations are directly tied to text-specific materials. Instructors can also edit questions and algorithms, import their own content, and create announcements and due dates for assignments. ARIS has automatic grading and reporting of easy-to-assign algorithmically generated homework, quizzing, and testing. All student activity within McGraw-Hill's ARIS is automatically recorded and available to the instructor through a fully integrated grade book that can be downloaded to Excel. Go to www.mharis.com to learn more.
Presentation Center - Build instructional materials wherever, whenever, and however you want! Presentation Center is an online digital library containing assets such as photos, artwork, animations, PowerPoints, and other types of media that can be used to create customized lectures, visually enhanced tests and quizzes, compelling course websites, or attractive printed support materials. Access to your book, access to all books! This ever-growing resource gives instructors the power to utilize assets specific to their adopted textbook as well as content from other McGraw-Hill books in the library. Presentation Center's dynamic search engine allows you to explore by discipline, course, textbook chapter, asset type, or keyword. Simply browse, select, and download the files you need to build engaging course materials. All assets are copyrighted by McGraw-Hill Higher Education but can be used by instructors for classroom purposes.
eInstruction questions are available with this project and can be found within the ARIS site for this text. eInstruction is a wireless student response system that allows for the ultimate in classroom participation, giving you immediate feedback from every student.
Exciting visual program of both unique and conventional figures. Enhance student understanding of chemical concepts by Visualizing Chemistry process pieces, macro-micro art, and three-dimensional art.
