Reflecting Cengage Learning's commitment to offering value for students, this new hybrid version of CHEMICAL PRINCIPLES, 7e features the same content and coverage found in the full text, while delivering end-of-chapter questions online in OWL, the leading online learning system for chemistry. With this best-selling text, you'll develop the qualitative, conceptual foundation you need to think like a chemist. The author's unique organization emphasizes models, everyday applications of chemistry, and a thoughtful, step-by-step problem-solving approach. Access to OWL and the multimedia eBook (Cengage YouBook) is included with every new hybrid text, giving you an interactive learning experience with the convenience of a text that is both brief and affordable. Powerful online resources include tutorials, simulations, randomized homework questions, videos, and more.
About the Author
Steve Zumdahl is the author of market-leading textbooks in introductory chemistry, general chemistry, honors-level chemistry, and high school chemistry. Recently retired from his long-time position as Director of Undergraduate Programs at the University of Illinois, he has received numerous awards for his contributions to chemical education. These include the National Catalyst Award in recognition of his contribution to chemical education, the University of Illinois Teaching Award, the UIUC Liberal Arts and Sciences Advising Award, and the School of Chemical Sciences Teaching Award (five times). He earned his B.S. in Chemistry from Wheaton College (IL), and his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois. Donald J. DeCoste is Associate Director of General Chemistry at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and has been teaching chemistry at the high school and college levels for 26 years. He earned his BS in Chemistry and PhD from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. At UIUC he has developed chemistry courses for nonscience majors, preservice secondary teachers, and preservice elementary teachers. He teaches courses in introductory chemistry and the teaching of chemistry and has received the School of Chemical Sciences Teaching Award four times. Don has led workshops for secondary teachers and graduate student teaching assistants, discussing the methods and benefits of getting students more actively involved in class. When not involved in teaching and advising, Don enjoys spending time with his wife and three children.
