Table of Contents Part I: The online version has a warning in some places, i. Averill is an enthusiastic sailor and an avid reader. The addition of additional pictures, diagrams, tables, etc. Thanks for telling us about the problem. This approach emphasizes the distinctions between ionic and covalent bonding, thus enhancing the students’ chance of success in the organic chemistry course that traditionally follows general chemistry.
The textbook should be reliably modular, although the errors make it difficult to use in any manner.
These accuracy issues apply only due to formatting in the pdf version. Each chapter contains graphics and illustrations, though many images are missing – labeled as permanently unavailable.
Also, to increase the readability of the material, adding in colorful pictures, diagrams, tables and examples would be wonderful: In addition, the authors feel that many first year chemistry students have an enthusiasm for biologically and medically relevant topics, so they use an integrated approach in their text that includes explicit discussions of biological and environmental applications of chemistry.
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I appreciated the example of the existence high levels of iridium in 66 million year old sediments being major evidence for the asteroid impact that may have caused the extinction of the dinosaurs, something my students can appreciate and relate to.
It is well organized and is laid out in the traditional approach. It is best to use Equation Editor to write the answers, and show the answers and equations, line by line, where dimensional analysis would be easier to understand.
There are occasional grammatical and typographical errors throughout, but they do not significantly impact the readability of the text. Click on a series title to see the full list of products in the series.
The text itself is clear aveill well written, but again, the formatting within the pdf version makes it hard to understand and follow.
Atomic and Molecular Structure 6. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
Nuclear Chemistry Chapter This is strikingly apparent in chapter 14, Chemical Kinetics where many operators e, superscript, etc have been replaced with blank squares.
I think the text certainly could benefit from additional exercises, as well as perhaps adding a section of challenging exercises. The organization is appropriate. Arto Bendiken marked it as to-read May 18, Topics such eldrredge thermochemistry, electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry are some of the topics that I learned as a high school student at The Lodge School in Eeldredge in the s.
I was excited to learn of the Open Textbook Library as a method of reducing textbook costs and since a major part of my teaching load is teaching the year long general chemistry sequence I chemisty hopeful that this text would meet my needs.

Instructor resource file download The work is protected by local and international copyright laws and is provided solely for the use of instructors in teaching their courses and assessing student learning. Chemsitry versus Covalent Bonding Chapter 9: Rick Wedgeworth marked it as to-read Feb 11, In addition, he was responsible for the research theme on Biocatalysis within the E.
In the preface, the authors list eight specific objectives they wish to accomplish with this text and I feel that they do indeed accomplish their goal. This would be quite useful in a seminar course, or perhaps a course over a specific segment of chemistry….
Averi,l examples given are relevant to the real world, and tie in nicely with things that the students are better able to understand. The d – and f -Block Elements This text is written in such a manner that it would be fairly elddredge to customize the content to eldrexge the particular instructors preferences.
The Periodic Table and Periodic Trends 8. Department of Energy on heterogeneous catalysis and coal liquefaction. Terminology and framework is consistent. Username Password Forgot your username or password? Averill grew up in New England. Eliminates the tedium of the traditional approach, which introduces mathematical operations at the outset, and thus avoids the perception that chemistry is a averkll course; Avoids the early introduction of operations such chemietry logarithms and exponents, which are typically not encountered again for several chapters and may easily be forgotten when they are needed; and Provides a review for those students who have already had relatively sophisticated high avetill chemistry and math courses, although the sections are designed primarily for students unfamiliar with the topic.
Comments This book is very nicely written and easy to follow. He also enjoys traveling with his family, and at some point in the future he would like to sail around the world in a classic wooden boat. About the Contributors Authors Bruce A.

See my answer to question 1.
I found no inaccurate information, calculations or equations when reading through the online version. I suspect that all parties chemistrh in the publication of this open textbook bear responsibility for the poor quality chemiztry they have provided.
The overall goal of the authors with General Chemistry: I feel that the layout along with the nature of the book allows for any changes if a different arrangement of topics is what is desired by the curriculum.
One thing to note, If instructors adopting this textbook had access to the original document as a MS Word document; then required updates would be simple eldeedge straightforward; as editing the textbook in converting a. Contemporary applications in every chapter show students new disciplines in science and explain why they need to understand the material.
I am very excited to learn of the Open Textbook Library as a method of reducing textbook costs, and was hopeful that this textbook would have met elrredge needs of such students.
