More About This Textbook

Overview

Based on the premise that people learn science best by actively doing science collecting, analyzing, and synthesizing data, and drawing conclusions from those experiencesthis book allows readers to examine data, written descriptions, and figures to develop important chemical concepts. It teaches readers how to examine and process information, ask critical questions, develop knowledge skills through exercises, and build problem-solving skills.
