DESCRIPTION

Taking an evidence-first big picture approach, Chemistry: Human Activity, Chemical Reactivity encourages students to think like a chemist, develop critical understanding of what chemistry is, why it is important and how chemists arrive at their discoveries. Flipping the traditional model of presenting facts and building to applications, this text begins with contexts that are real-life and matter to students - from doping in sports, to the chemistry behind the treads of wall-climbing robots. Informed by the latest chemical education research, Chemistry: Human Activity, Chemical Reactivity presents chemistry as the exciting, developing human activity that it is, rather than a body of facts, theories, and skills handed down from the past. Along with the innovative MindTap Reader and OWLv2 learning platform, this text uses unique case studies and critically acclaimed interactive e-resources to help students learn chemistry and how it is helping to address global challenges of the 21st century.
