Chemistry: Atoms First (3rd Edition) – eBook PDF:
Dr. Jason Overby received his B.S. degree in chemistry and political science from the University of Tennessee at Martin. Jason then received his Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from Vanderbilt University (1997) studying main group and transition metal metallocenes and related compounds. Afterwards, Dr. Overby conducted postdoctoral research in transition metal organometallic chemistry at Dartmouth College. Dr. Overby began his academic career at the College of Charleston in 1999 as an assistant professor. Currently, Jason is an associate professor with teaching interests in general and inorganic chemistry. He is also interested in the integration of technology into the classroom, including the use of online homework. Additionally, he conducts research with undergraduates in organic and inorganic synthetic chemistry as well as computational organometallic chemistry.
Dr. Julia Burdge did most of her undergraduate work at Iowa State University, completing her bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree in inorganic chemistry at the University of South Florida in Tampa. She earned her doctroate in analytical chemistry at the University of Idaho. Her Master’s and doctoral research involved the development of instruments and methods for measuring ultra-trace concentrations of atmospheric sulfur compounds and the development of chemotherapeutic analogs of cisplatin. Over the past twenty years, Dr. Burdge has taught introductory and advanced courses in every division of the undergraduate chemistry curriculum, as well as interdisciplinary courses. Dr. Burdge also developed and taught a new introductory chemistry course for pre-service science teachers, and initiated and served as a mentor in a future faculty development program for graduate students and post-doctoral associates. Julia is currently affiliated with the University of Idaho, USA.
Chemistry: Atoms First (3rd Edition) – eTextBook
Chemistry Atoms First 3rd edition approach provides a logical and consistent method for teaching general chemistry.
This approach starts with the fundamental building block of matter, the atom, and uses it as the stepping stone to understanding more complex chemistry topics.
Once mastery of the nature of atoms and electrons is achieved, the formation and properties of compounds are developed.
Only after the study of matter and the atom will students have sufficient background to fully engage in topics such as equilibrium, stoichiometry, kinetics, and thermodynamics.
Thus, the Atoms First approach empowers instructors to present the most complete and compelling story of general chemistry. Far from a just re-ordering of topics, this is an etextbook that will truly meet the needs of the growing atoms-first market.
The 3rd edition continues to build on the innovative success of the 1st and 2nd editions.
Changes to this edition include specific refinements intended to augment the student-centred pedagogical features that continue to make this book popular and effective both with college students and with their professors.
