For non-majors introductory chemistry courses.
Engage students with contemporary and relevant applications of chemistry
Chemistry for Changing Times has defined the liberal arts course and remains the most visually appealing and readable introduction for the subject. Abundant applications and examples fill each chapter and enable students of varied majors to readily relate to chemistry.
For the 15th Edition, author Terry McCreary and new coauthors Marilyn Duerst and Rill Ann Reuter, introduce new examples and a consistent model for problem solving. They guide students through the problem-solving process, asking them to apply the models and combine them with previously learned concepts. New problem types engage and challenge students to develop skills they will use in their everyday lives, including developing scientific literacy, analyzing graphs and data, recognizing fake vs. real news, and creating reports. New relevant, up-to-date applications focus on health & wellness and the environment, helping non-science and allied-health majors taking the course to see the connections between the course materials and their everyday lives.
