One of the greatest challenges facing chemists and chemical educators today is conveying the central importance and relevance of chemistry to students and society at large. The new edition of Chemistry Connections highlights the fundamental role of chemical principles in governing our everyday experiences and observations.Introductory chemistry students and educators as well as laypersons with an inquisitiveness about the world around them will find the book an informative introduction to the context of chemistry in their lives. The book is written in a lively question-and-answer format with presentations in both lay and technical terms.
Very broad appeal for educated laypersons with a curiosity about science to college students taking introductory or survey courses and those professors preparing to teach such courses. Course titles include (but are not limited to): General Chemistry, Introductory Chemistry, Chemistry and Society, Science and Society.
