General Chemistry – Darrell D. Ebbing, Steven D. Gammon – 9th Edition


The Ninth Edition of this market-leading text has been substantially revised to meet the rapidly changing instructional demands of General professors. Known for its carefully developed, thoroughly integrated, step-by-step approach to problem solving, General Chemistry helps students master quantitative skills and build a lasting conceptual understanding of key concepts. The Ninth Edition retains this hallmark approach and builds upon the conceptual focus through key new features and revisions.

The book creates a context for numerical problem solvingandhelps students master the big ideas in each chapter throughConceptChecks and Conceptual Problems, as well as ConceptExplorations andStrategy Problems that challenge students to thinkstep by step andnot rush for a numerical answer.

Focus On Conceptual Understanding. End-of-chapter problemtypesdesigned to improve students conceptual understandingincludemultiple-choice Self-Assessment and Review ,multi-stepConcept Explorations, rigorous Strategy Problems, andgeneralproblem essay questions, based on the books “A Chemist Looksat?”and “ Methods” boxed essays, allowing instructorstomore easily integrate interesting real-life applications intotheircourse and promote the development of scientificwritingskills.
