Chemistry: A Molecular Approach 4th Global Edition
For courses in Chemistry. Building 21st Century Data Analysis and Problem-Solving Skills in Modern Chemistry The Fourth Edition of Niva Tro’s Chemistry: A Molecular Approach reinforces students’ development of 21st century skills including data interpretation and analysis, problem solving and quantitative reasoning, applying conceptual understanding to new situations and peer-to-peer collaboration. Nivaldo Tro presents chemistry visually through multi-level images-macroscopic, molecular, and symbolic representations-helping students see the connections between the world they see around them (macroscopic), the atoms and molecules that compose the world (molecular), and the formulas they write down on paper (symbolic). The benefits of Dr. Tro’s problem-solving approach are reinforced through digital, Interactive Worked Examples that provide students with an office-hour type of environment and expanded coverage on the latest developments in chemistry. New Key Concept Videos explain difficult concepts while new end-of-chapter problems including Group Work questions and Data Interpretation and Analysis questions engage students in applying their understanding of chemistry. The revision has been constructed to easily incorporate material for instructors and students to engage in Before, During, and After class activities. MasteringChemistry (TM) is not included. Students, if MasteringChemistry is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MasteringChemistry should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information. MasteringChemistry from Pearson is the leading online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results by engaging students before, during, and after class with powerful content. Instructors ensure students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class, and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics (TM).
Pre-Order (3-4 weeks)
Infectious Diseases – as only Harrison’s can cover it. Featuring a superb compilation of chapters related to infectious diseases that appear in “Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine, Eighteenth Edition”, this concise, full-color clinical companion delivers the latest knowledge in the field backed by the scientific rigor and authority that have defined Harrison’s. You will find content from renowned editors and contributors in a carry-anywhere presentation that is ideal for the classroom, clinic, ward, or exam/certification preparation. It features: current, complete coverage of need-to-know topics, including infections in organ systems, bacterial infections, viral infections, prion diseases, fungal infections, and protozoal infections; Addresses underlying epidemiologic, pathophysiologic, and genetic factors; important material on HIV infections and AIDS by Anthony S. Fauci and H. Clifford Lane; two image-based chapters comprise atlases valuable to clinical assessment: rashes associated with fever and blood smears of the various stages of the parasites causing malaria and babesiosis; integration of pathophysiology with clinical management. 121 high-yield questions and answers drawn from “Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine Self-Assessment and Board Review, 18e”; content updates and new developments since the publication of “Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine, 18e”; 132 chapters written by physicians who are recognized experts in the field of infectious diseases; and helpful appendix of laboratory values of clinical importance.
ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE inspires and equips students to make a difference for the world. Featuring sustainability as their central theme, authors Tyler Miller and Scott Spoolman emphasize natural capital, natural capital degradation, solutions, trade-offs, and the importance of individuals.
Harnessing fungi’s enzymatic ability to break down lignocellulolytic biomass to produce ethanol more efficiently and cost-effectively has become a significant research and industrial interest. Fungi and Lignocellulosic Biomass provides readers with a broad range of information on the uses and untapped potential of fungi in the production of bio-based fuels.
With information on the molecular biological and genomic aspects of fungal degradation of plant cell walls to the industrial production and application of key fungal enzymes, chapters in the book cover topics such as enzymology of cellulose, hemicelluloses, and lignin degradation. Edited by a leading researcher in the field, Fungi and Lignocellulosic Biomass will be a valuable tool in advancing the development and production of biofuels and a comprehensive resource for fungal biologists, enzymologists, protein chemists, biofuels chemical engineers, and other research and industry professionals in the field of biomass research.
