Publisher Comments:

CHEM delivers exactly what today's students need --and want. Based on student and faculty feedback from nationwide interviews and focus groups, CHEM was developed through a "student-tested, faculty-approved" process. The result is a concise, engaging, and accessible textbook that presents the basic chemical principles faculty require within a framework of relevant, real world applications that liberal arts students can relate to. Delivered at a value price, CHEM accommodates the diverse lifestyles of today's learners, features a modern, open page design, and includes a wide array of print and online learning aids, including chapter-by-chapter study cards, self-quizzes, interactive flash cards, Go Chemistry and Thinkwell mini-video lectures, and online homework available through the OWL learning system.


Created through a "student-tested, faculty-approved" review process with feedback from students and faculty, CHEM is an engaging and accessible solution that accommodates the diverse lifestyles of today's learners. CHEM covers the basic chemical principles within the framework of real world applications.

About the Author

Melvin D. Joesten, Emeritus, Professor of Chemistry and Education at Vanderbilt University, received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois. His interests included chemical education for the college liberal arts student, chemical education for college science and engineering students, and K-12 science education with emphasis on pre-service and in-service programs for teachers. John L. Hogg was Professor of Chemistry and Thamann Professor of Undergraduate Teaching Excellence at Texas A&M University. He received his B.S. degree in chemistry at Southwestern State College in Oklahoma, his Ph.D. from the University of Kansas, and joined the faculty at Texas A&M University in 1975. He has about 40 publications in the general areas of physical organic and bioorganic chemistry. He has received numerous teaching awards, including the Texas A&M University Association of Former Students Faculty Distinguished Achievement Awards in Teaching, College of Science teaching award (2002) and the Mervin and Annette Peters Advising Award as the outstanding undergraduate faculty advisor at Texas A&M in 2004. Dr. Hogg was one of the first four faculty members at Texas A&M to receive the title of University Professor of Undergraduate Teaching Excellence (1996), and he was honored with a named professorship in 2002. John passed away suddenly in 2008, and we dedicate this revision to his memory. Donald R. Neu, Professor of Chemistry at Saint Cloud State University, MN, received his B.S. From Minnesota State University-Mankato and his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison under the direction of Arthur B. Ellis. He worked with the Institute of Chemical Education to develop multiple teaching tools still widely used today to teach aspects of materials chemistry. He joined the faculty at Saint Cloud State University in 1993 , where he teaches Liberal Arts Chemistry, General Chemistry, Nuclear Chemistry, and Inorganic Chemistry . His interests include chemical education with the emphasis on utilizing technology to improve student performance, and conceptual understanding in Chemistry.
