This comprehensive guide uses visual analogies and conceptual illustrations to assist students in learning the fundamental concepts of general, organic, and biochemistry. By using these analogies, the student can take things they already know from experiences in everyday life and use them to clarify concepts with which they are unfamiliar. The book offers a variety of effective learning activities such as study tips, rhymes and practice problems .
Features of A Visual Analogy Guide to Chemistry:
Covers all major subject areas presented in an Introduction to Chemistry or General, Organic, and Biochemistry course
About the Author
Analogies and other key concepts are presented in a modular format with the text on the even-numbered pages and illustrations and analogies on the facing odd-numbered page.
Large, high-quality, original illustrations presented in two-colors, (black and white with colored highlights).Students may choose to color these illustrations to aid their comprehension of the material.
Helpful icons throughout the book identify helpful tips and hints for learning chemistry concepts.
A "visual index" will be included for easy referencing. Located on the upper right-hand side of the odd numbered pages, these "visual index" illustrations will allow the reader to quickly locate the analogy he or she wishes to study.
When a module contains practice problems, the answers will be provided underneath the questions to allow students to learn through self-quizzing.
