Chemistry in Context 9th Edition Pdf Book Description:

Climate change. Water contamination. Air pollution. Food shortages. These and other societal issues are regularly featured in the media. However, did you know that chemistry plays a crucial role in addressing these challenges? A knowledge of chemistry is also essential to improve the quality of our lives. For instance, faster electronic devices, stronger plastics, and more effective medicines and vaccines all rely on the innovations of chemists throughout the world. With our world so dependent on chemistry, it is unfortunate that most chemistry textbooks do not provide significant details regarding real-world applications. Enter Chemistry in Context “the book that broke the mold.” Since its inception in 1993, Chemistry in Context has focused on the presentation of chemistry fundamentals within a contextual framework. This new edition of Chemistry in Context continues with the organizational scheme used in previous editions. However, a new introductory chapter focusing on portable electronics is used to introduce the periodic table, elements, and compounds. Subsequent chapters delve into other real world themes that provide a foundation of chemistry concepts that is built upon in later chapters. A variety of embedded in chapter question types “Skill Building” (basic review, more traditional, “Scientific Practices” (critical thinking), and “You Decide” (analytical reasoning—also includes questions that directly use the Internet.

The questions are plentiful and varied. They range from simpler practice exercises focusing on traditional chemical principles to those requiring more thorough analysis and integration of applications. Some of the questions are the basis for small group work, class discussions, or individual projects. These activities will afford students the opportunity to explore interests, as time permits, beyond the core topics. Web based activities found on the Connect site are integrated throughout the text. These web-based activities help students develop critical thinking and analytical problem-solving skills based on real-time information. Many chapters include a figure that “comes alive” through interactivity. This feature resides on the Connect site and can be assigned by the instructor. Once again, we have the pleasure of offering our readers a new edition of Chemistry in Context. But the work is not done by just one individual; rather, it is the work of a talented team. The ninth edition builds on the legacy of prior author teams led by Cathy Middle camp, A. Truman Schwartz, Conrad L. Stanitski, and Lucy Pryde Eubanks, all leaders in the chemical education community. This new edition was prepared by Bradley Fahlman, Kathleen Purvis-Roberts, John Kirk, Anne Bentley, Patrick Daubenmire, Jamie Ellis, and Michael Mury. The accompanying laboratory manual was extensively revised by Jennifer Tripp and Lallie McKenzie. Each author brought their own experiences and expertise to the project, which helped to greatly expand the depth and breadth of the contexts in order to reach a variety of audiences. Stephanie Ryan and Jaclyn Trate also did an amazing job with writing solutions to all in-chapter activities, which were greatly expanded from previous editions.
