If you're looking
for an alternative to the traditional lab lecture format in general
chemistry, look no further than Dave Hanson's
Foundations of Chemistry, an activities book for general
chemistry. These 66 activities, enough
to easily cover a two-semester general chemistry course, will actively
engage your students in process-oriented guided-inquiry learning (POGIL)
and assist them in becoming better critical thinkers and problem-solvers.
Foundations of Chemistry, 4th
Edition, is also the most reasonably priced activity book for general
chemistry on the market today.
Instructors are supported through a secure
Instructor’s Resources web site that includes
access to all activities in both the student and instructor editions.
Additional resources from the Faculty Guidebook are also available
to support your use of this text.
Please note that we are happy to grant access to the Instructor
Resources for instructors who formally adopt the use of this
text in their classrooms.
Purchase of a
single copy of the book does NOT qualify for access; we
must either receive an order from your campus bookstore or
make arrangements for your students to purchase the book
directly from our website). Please
contact us if you have any questions
or to request access as an adopting instructor.
