Facilitates the implementation of cooperative learning in general chemistry as a replacement of lectures as the primary method of delivery. It's based on the philosophy that students learn science best by actively doing science: collecting, analyzing, and synthesizing data. It is neither a textbook, nor a study guide, but a guided inquiry into important chemical concepts. It covers atomic structure, solids and liquids, thermodynamics, kinetics, and more.
