Description: Adventures in Chemistryengages non-science majors in learning about compelling applications such as forensics, infectious diseases, and the chemistry of art, while also introducing them to the fundamentals of chemistry through clear, concise language. Using the metaphor of a hike as its pedagogical structure, the text presents core concepts and then shows how they apply to contemporary examples. With confidence in their understanding of basic principles, students can use their new chemical knowledge to make well-informed decisions about the foods they eat, the medicines they take, and the lifestyles they pursue. Scenic Overlooksfollow each section within the fundamentals chapters (Part 1) and provide summary problems that students should master before proceeding to the next section. Trail Markersfollow each section in the applications chapters (Parts 2 and 3) and present interim summaries that help students review and retain what they have learned in that section. First Ascentessays present snapshots of scientific pioneersincluding Charles Drew, Rosalind Franklin, Lise Meitner, and Gertrude Elionthat offer first-hand perspectives on chapter-related fields and achievements. Water Breakessays expand on chapter materialexplaining such topics as the chemical processes behind glow sticks and art restorationto spark student interest and help students apply core concepts to their lives. Looking Ahead and Looking Backfeatures throughout each chapter integrate concepts and applications from different chapters.
