Organic Chemistry: A Brief Course, 13/e (Paperback)
Harold Hart, Christopher M. Hadad, Leslie E. Craine, David J. Hart
●UPDATED ART PROGRAM. The text's updated, visually dynamic art program is enhanced online, on CD, and in the text.
●OWL INTEGRATION. Improve student learning outcomes with OWL, the #1 online homework and learning system for chemistry. Developed by chemistry instructors for teaching chemistry, OWL includes course management tools that make homework management a breeze, as well as advanced reporting and grade book features that save time in grading homework and tracking student progress. OWL enables you to address students' different learning styles through tutorials, simulations, visualization exercises, and algorithmically-generated homework questions with answer-specific feedback. With OWL's mastery learning approach, students work at their own pace until they understand each concept/skill. OWL includes an eBook, enhanced with multimedia learning tools.
●EXPANDED FOCUS ON GREEN CHEMISTRY. Updated and revised end-of-chapter exercises now include "green chemistry."
●UPDATED "A CLOSER LOOK AT" BOXES. These updated boxes encourage students to develop their Web research skills by exploring topics ranging from mass spectrometry and carbon dating to Nobel laureates and protein chemistry to the polymerase chain reaction. Instructors may assign these activities, using them as a basis for class discussion or as a springboard for projects.
●NEW PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS. This edition offers over 1,000 clearly marked, new problems and solutions - an average of almost 60 per chapter – to help students improve their problem-solving skills. Many of the new problems require students to develop their three-dimensional visualization skills.
●UPDATED "A WORD ABOUT" ESSAYS. These engaging essays--now assignable and accompanied by pedagogy -- motivate students by demonstrating how chemistry relates to other branches of science and to their everyday lives. Many of these essays examine emerging issues in green chemistry while others cover interesting topics such as Quinones and the Bombadier Beetle, Alkaloids and the Dart Poison Frog, Prostaglandins, and Aspirin and Pain.
●ACCOMPANYING LABORATORY MANUAL. Developed with the assistance of co-author T.K. Vinod at Western Illinois University, the lab manual includes an experiment on green chemistry, pre-laboratory exercises, and safety instructions to students.
●USE OF ARROW PUSHING FORMALISM. This assists professors teaching reaction mechanisms.
●WORKED OUT EXAMPLES AND PRACTICE PROBLEMS. These exercises and problems guide students through learning and mastering chapter concepts. End-of-chapter problems gradually increase in difficulty, reinforcing basic principles and problem-solving skills before moving on to more challenging ones.
●VISUALLY DYNAMIC ART PROGRAM. The art program offers beautifully designed electrostatic potential maps to aid discussions of acid-base chemistry, as well as ball-and-stick structures that help students visualize molecules in three dimensions.
