BRING CHEMISTRY TO LIFE FOR YOUR STUDNETS!
This bestselling lab manual is ideal for students with little or no background in chemistry. The carefully constructed experiments begin with the basics and slowly increase in complexity as students expand their capabilities. there is enough variety and flexibility to suit either a one or two-semester course. The lab manual includes:
- 28 experiments
- 19 exercises
- 6 study aids
- Helpful appendices with lists of suggested equipment, units of measurement, directions for preparation of all solutions, solubility tables and other helpful reference materials.
Safety guidelines are completely up-to-date and are included with every experiment. In addition, many exercises and projects make use of computer graphing.
Foundations of Chemistry in the Laboratory, 12th edition, is ideal for use with any introductory/preparatory text including Morris Hein and Susan Arena's Foundations of College Chemistry, 12th edition.
Learning the fundamentals of chemistry can be a difficult task to undertake. The market leader for 35 years, Foundations of College Chemistry has helped countless readers master the chemistry skills they need to succeed. The book is known for its accuracy and direct writing style. Hein follows a step-by-step approach to problem solving with alternate methods of solution when appropriate. The new 12th edition has also been updated throughout with the latest information in the field.
About the Author
is professor emeritus of chemistry at Mt. San Antonio College, where he regularly taught the preparatory chemistry course and organic chemistry. He is the original author of Foundations of College Chemistry
and his name has become synonymous with clarity, meticulous accuracy, and a step-by-step approach that students can follow. Over the years, more than three million students have learned chemistry using a text by Morris Hein. In addition to Foundations of College Chemistry
, he is co-author of Introduction to General, Organic, and Biochemistry, Seventh Edition,
and Introduction to Organic and Biochemistry
. He is also co-author of Foundations of Chemistry in the Laboratory, Eleventh Edition
, and Introduction to General, Organic and Biochemistry in the Laboratory, Seventh Edition.
Susan Arena has taught chemistry to students at many levels including middle school, high school, community college and most recently at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. She especially focuses on using active learning techniques to improve the understanding of concepts in chemistry. Susan currently authors chemistry texts and electronic media, and presents workshops for teachers in suing active learning and electronic media to teach chemistry. She collaborated with Morris Hein on the seventh edition of Foundations of College Chemistry and became a co-author on the eighth edition. She is also a co-author of Introduction to General, Organic and Biochemistry, Seventh Edition.
