To facilitate integration of such material, simple organic structures, nomenclature, and reactions are introduced very early in the text, and both organic and inorganic examples are used wherever possible.
Also the formatting problems discussed agerill question 1 make many equations so confusing as to be incomprehensible to a general chemistry student. While there, she studied advanced Maritime Engineering, Materials, and Oceanography at the University of Southampton in England, arising from her keen interest in naval architecture.
The only issue would be brude formatting ones that would be necessary updates for the pdf version. Navigation and the interface on the online version is good. Indeed, this text could zverill be used as a standalone teaching option.
Department of Energy on heterogeneous catalysis and coal liquefaction. I am very excited to learn of the Open Textbook Library as a method of reducing textbook costs, and was hopeful averjll this textbook would have met the needs of such students. Unfortunately, at this moment in time, because of the significant formatting issues and the way the content is presented, I am unable to recommend this text to the instructors who ptricia at the freshman level.
Navigation of the text was easy using my PC and I did not come across any issues of loading of images. The Structure of Atoms Chapter 7: The compound has a vapor pressure of 1.

About the Book The overall goal of the authors with General Chemistry: The text contains patrici interesting “real world” examples of applied chemistry fireworks and their composition being one of my favorite which will act as effective “hooks” to capture student interest. The content appears to be accurate in its intent; however, the errors and omissions in the.
The organization is appropriate. Comments I appreciate the considerable efforts by the authors to create this text, and I wish to thank them for sharing their work with the public in this arena – thank you!
The last chapter involving organic chemistry was tacked on and appeared to be rushed to make a comprehensive textbook. The addition of additional pictures, diagrams, tables, etc. I have not found any issues. The pdf version is way too long 2.
General Chemistry: Principles, Patterns, and Applications
At what temperature is the vapor pressure equal to 0. I would not consider using this open textbook for my classes, and furthermore, I would encourage the authors, the publisher, and the University of Minnesota to remove this content from the web unless and until it can be presented in a more responsible fashion. Topics relevant to materials science are also introduced to meet the more specific needs of engineering eldreedge.
Occasionally, when you are scrolling through worked examples with equations or calculations, that top navigation menu is visible, but you cannot click on it. I was excited to learn of the Open Textbook Library as a method of reducing textbook costs and since a major part of my teaching load is teaching the year long general chemistry sequence I was hopeful that this text would meet my needs.
State Department, where he remained for several years as a senior energy consultant.
General Chemistry: Principles, Patterns, and Applications – Open Textbook Library
The history of chemistry should have been researched as the history of chemistry is very biased towards Europeans versus other races who really have been practicing chemistry for many years. His published work is frequently cited by other researchers, and he has been invited to give more than presentations at educational and research institutions and at national and eldrrdge scientific meetings.
Personally, chapter 8 should have been merged with chapter 2.
The textbook is more than adequate in terms of clarity, however some of the example calculations would benefit from additional formatting as soon as possible. All thermochemical topics and problems should have been in one chapter. A chapter with covalent and ionic bonds should have presented along with Lewis dot structures.

The content is accurate, the text comprehensive and could easily elrredge used in a general chemistry curriculum. Consider this text for your course if you are interested in In summary, a text that represents a step in the evolution of general chemistry texts toward one that reflects the increasing overlap between chemistry and other disciplines.
Patricia Eldredge was raised in the U. In the preface, the authors list eight specific objectives they wish to accomplish with this text and I feel that they do indeed accomplish their goal. He is also an expert on cyber-security. Also, all chapters have links that refer back to previous chapters but none of the links opened on my PC. This issue is more predominant in the pdf version, where fractions are not shown.
This would also be an opportunity to proactively feature chemists and other scientists from traditionally under-represented groups to serve as aspirational role models for averill students using the textbook. Brucr was promoted inafter which he moved to the University of Virginia, where he was promoted to Professor in The text lacks a table of contents, averil or a glossary and the lack of these is a serious impediment to students.
As such, we at ODU, are always looking for ways to lower the cost of their education without a compromise in quality. In his European position, Dr. Reactions in Aqueous Solution Chapter 5: To begin the discussion of chemistry rapidly, the traditional first chapter introducing units, significant figures, conversion factors, dimensional analysis, and so on, has been reorganized.
