Flipping the traditional model of presenting facts and building to applications, this text begins with contexts that are real-life and matter to students - from doping in sports, to the chemistry behind the treads of wall-climbing robots.
Informed by the latest chemical education research, Chemistry: Human Activity, Chemical Reactivity presents chemistry as the exciting, developing human activity that it is, rather than a body of facts, theories, and skills handed down from the past. Along with the innovative MindTap Reader and OWLv2 learning platform, this text uses unique case studies and critically acclaimed interactive e-resources to help students learn chemistry and how it is helping to address global challenges of the 21st century.
After attaining a PhD in physical chemistry, he developed a passionate interest in the challenges of education in chemistry, and for some time his research interests have been in that field.
Gabriela C. Weaver received her B.
Her work in instructional technology development and on active learning has led to numerous publications in addition to her publications on surface physical chemistry.

He also has published research on inorganic chemistry and electrochemistry. He was a Fulbright Lecturer and Research Scholar in Portugal in and a visiting professor there in , as well as a visiting professor at the Institute for Chemical Education University of Wisconsin, and at Auckland University in New Zealand He also was an invited speaker at a meeting of the South African Chemical Society and at the biennial conference for secondary school chemistry teachers in New Zealand.

Overton There are many general chemistry textbooks on the market and they all almost inevitably cover similar content. Academic staff choose these books for their undergraduate students based on many criteria; level, detailed content, layout, design, chapter order, habit, etc.

Chemistry: Human Activity, Chemical Reactivity may give academics additional criteria to consider. The book is authored by a well-known team of chemical educators who have a particular passion for representing chemistry visually, using electronic resources to enhance conceptual understanding, and for making explicit the importance of chemistry in the world today. Thus, when choosing your general chemistry text for next semester, ask yourself whether it is important to you that your students leave your course with an understanding of the centrality of chemistry, with an appreciation of its impact on all aspects of life on Earth.
Ask yourself whether you want your students to have access to a varied range of high quality e-resources to supplement your own interaction with them. If either of these criteria is important to you then I recommend that you spend some time studying what Chemistry: Human Activity, Chemical Reactivity has to offer. Many textbooks describe the applications of chemistry in everyday life, and this book does that too.
But the contexts are not add-ons or afterthoughts; rather, they act as the driver for the text. Each chapter commences with a substantial case study.
Chemistry : Human Activity, Chemical Reactivity
These case studies draw from the natural world issues of green chemistry and sustainability in most chapters. For example, the chapter on carbon compounds starts with a case study of methane clathrates, and that on chemical reactions and energy, with a case study of hydrogen as a fuel.
The more obviously organic chapters use contexts from pharmaceuticals or biological chemistry, with case studies on curing and death and dying in the aromatics compounds chapter, and a case study on the discovery of penicillin in the carbonyl compound chapter.
These case studies are fascinating and a useful resource in themselves, and I looked forward to each one.
It is perhaps a little unfortunate that the first two are about drug abuse, and that some potential adopters may be prudish enough to be put off by that. But in each case the topics are discussed in their scientific context, and in a way that helps us to appreciate in these cases the power of analytical techniques.
The case studies are not the only place that the essential importance of chemistry is discussed.
Real-life context is embedded within the text, often in a way that encourages students to think about how we know what we know, and that demonstrates the scientific method effectively.
Big issues are tackled here: climate change, alternative energy sources, feeding the world. It is right and proper that chemistry be presented in these important contexts—especially, I suspect, for many general chemistry students for whom this will be their last encounter with formal education in the subject.
The authors have been very careful about explaining to students the multiple ways in which chemical information can be presented at the symbolic, observational, and molecular levels. All too often tutors move between these levels without properly explaining to students what the ground rules are, why there are different conventions, and why they matter.Seller Inventory May show signs of minor shelf wear and contain limited notes and highlighting.
