This dynamic new Honors General Chemistry text brings together a practical 'Molecular to Macroscopic' approach, a proven problem solving approach that challenges students to think logically, along with a clear and concise writing style. Combined with the author's teaching experience at the University of Kansas, extensive reviewing and accuracy checks,Brian Laird'sUniversity Chemistry is certain to meet the needs of both instructor and student.
Clear, concise approach to the advanced level General Chemistry course.
Challenging in-chapter and end-of-chapter problems.
Logical Chapter Organization- We will take the "Atoms First" approach, covering Atomic Structure in chapter one. The first four introductory chapters found in Chang 7e will be condensed and put into an appendix or offered as a short intro chapter. We will also cover thermochemistry and entropy, free energy and equilibrium state in successive chapters- 6 & 7.
