Reseña del editor
For instructors who want the latest technology—without the frequent textbook revisions—Houghton Mifflin presents Chemistry, 6/e (©2003), with new the Virtual Toolbox for Chemistry. Available for Fall 2005 courses, this suite of teaching and learning technology tools supports new and existing Chemistry users and meets the rapidly changing instructional demands of General Chemistry professors. The Virtual Toolbox offers access to tutoring, assessment, and presentation tools through the comprehensive Eduspace Course Management tool—instructors can also choose selected resources for use separately via CD-ROM or the Web. These resources are certain to make learning more dynamic and course planning, presentation, and management more intuitive.
Chemistry, 6/e, owes its success to its conceptual approach to problem-solving, high-quality end-of-chapter problems, and student friendly writing style. A strong emphasis on models and real-world applications prevails throughout the text.
- The Virtual Toolbox provides a suite of integrated technology tools for students and instructors. All materials (except restricted testing items) are web accessible, with passwords included in the media guides. In addition, to meet instructor needs, the Media Integration Guide for Instructors includes CD-ROMs containing all teaching resources.
- To ensure that students devote more time to their study of chemistry, key elements of the Virtual Toolbox are assignable. In the classroom, instructors can gauge student progress though a Classroom Response System. Online homework within Eduspace—using either end-of-chapter questions or interactive ChemWork problems—can be tracked and graded. Even new animations—now with skill-building exercises—can be assigned.
- To provide instructors with greater assessment capabilities, an expanded set of HM Testing questions and improved test bank functionality now supports the text.
- For the visual learner, several new resources are provided, including animations on the HM ClassPresent v.2 CD-ROM and/or the student web site/student CD-ROM.
- To support you and your students as you use our technology, we offer implementation services from our Team UP support staff, as well as carefully revised and expanded media integration guides for both students and instructors, along with significant updates to the textbook web sites—including a 60-day Eduspace trial.
- The authors emphasize a qualitative approach to chemistry in the text and technology program before quantitative problems are considered, helping build student understanding.
- Worked-out Examples throughout the text present a thoughtful, step-by-step approach to solving problems.
- A wealth of end-of-chapter questions reinforce conceptual understanding and sharpen problem solving skills: collaborative In-Class Discussion Questions, Exercises organized by topic, Additional Exercises not keyed by topic, integrative Challenge Problems, comprehensive Marathon Problems, and web-related Media Activities.
- Eduspace (powered by Blackboard), Houghton Mifflin's complete course management solution, features two sets of online problems: end-of-chapter algorithmic questions and ChemWork interactive online homework with links to corresponding textbook pages for student reference at point of learning. ChemWork assignments help students learn the process of thinking like a chemist: as students work through unique, text-based assignments, a system of interactive, encouraging hints is available to help them think through each problem.
