Description:

The exciting new Third Edition expands on the visualization pedagogy from co-author Stacey Lowery Bretz and makes it even easier to implement in the classroom. Based on her Chemistry Education Research on how students construct and interpret multiple representations, art in the book and media has been revised to be more pedagogically effective and address student misconceptions. New projected visualization problems help instructors assess students' conceptual understanding in lecture or during exams. A new Interactive Instructor's Guide provides innovative ways to incorporate research-based active learning pedagogy into the classroom.
