Description

For courses in Organic Chemistry (2-Semester)

 

A Student-Centered Approach to Learning and Studying Organic Chemistry

Wade & Simek’s Ninth Edition of Organic Chemistry presents key principles of organic chemistry in the context of fundamental reasoning and problem solving. Authored to complement how students use a textbook today, new Problem Solving Strategies, Partially Solved Problems, Visual Reaction Guides and Reaction Starbursts encourage students to use the text before class as a primary introduction to organic chemistry as well as a comprehensive study tool for working problems and/or preparing for exams. With unparalleled and highly refined pedagogy, this Ninth edition gives students a contemporary overview of organic principles and the tools for organizing and understanding reaction mechanisms and synthetic organic chemistry.

 

MasteringChemistry™ not included. Students, if MasteringChemistry is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MasteringChemistry should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.

 

MasteringChemistry is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment system, designed to improve results by engaging students before, during, and after class with powerful content. Instructors ensure students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class, and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics.

About the Book

  • Organic Chemistry offers the following features to facilitate learning:
  • Highly refined presentation and features present key principles of organic chemistry in the context of fundamental reasoning and problem solving.
  • Expanded coverage of Acid/Base Chemistry in Chapter 2 and separation of the material on Substitution and Elimination into two distinct chapters allow students to build upon their existing knowledge and move through their first mechanisms with greater clarity and with more opportunities to test and apply their understanding without getting overwhelmed.
  • Problem Solving Strategies have been added and explicitly highlighted in each chapter, including new strategies for resonance, acid-base equilibria, and multistep synthesis.
  • Green chemistry is emphasized with presentation of less-toxic, environmentally friendly reagents in many situations, such as oxidation of alcohols with bleach rather than with chromium reagents.
  • Chapter Openers focus on applications discussed in the chapter, with introductions and images for a more enticing, contemporary presentation.
  • Reaction Starbursts appear before the end of chapter material of every ‘reaction-based chapter’ to help students better understand and mentally organize reactive similarities and distinctions.
  • NEW! Visual Guides to Organic Reactions place the reactions covered in major chapters within the overall context of the reactions covered in the course.
  • New! Over 100 new problems include more synthesis problems and problems based on recent literature.
  • UPDATED! Art has been revised throughout to provide consistency and clarity in the text, giving students access to detailed representations of molecular and orbital art.

Before Class

  • Dynamic Study Modules help students study effectively on their own by continuously assessing their activity and performance in real time. Here's how it works: students complete a set of questions with a unique answer format that also asks them to indicate their confidence level. Questions repeat until the student can answer them all correctly and confidently. Once completed, Dynamic Study Modules explain the concept using materials from the text. These are available as graded assignments prior to class, and accessible on smartphones, tablets, and computers. Organic ChemistryDynamic Study Modules focus on general chemistry remediation, acid-base chemistry, functional groups, nomenclature, and key mechanisms
  • Pearson eText 2.0 features include:
      • Now available on smartphones and tablets.
      • Accessible (screen-reader ready).
      • Configurable reading settings, including resizable type and night reading mode.
      • Instructor and student note taking, highlighting, bookmarking, and search.

 

During Class

  • Learning Catalyticsgenerates class discussion, guides your lecture, and promotes peer-to-peer learning with real-time analytics. MasteringChemistry with eText now provides Learning Catalytics—an interactive student response tool that uses students’ smartphones, tablets, or laptops to engage them in more sophisticated tasks and thinking.
  • Six NMR/IR Spectroscopy simulations (a partnership with Advanced Chemistry Dynamic labs) allow professors and students access to limitless spectral analysis with guided activities that be used in lab, in the classroom, of after class to study and explore spectra virtually. Activities authored by Mike Huggins, Univ of West Florida, prompt students to utilize the spectral simulator and walks them through different analysis and possible conclusions to draw from the spectra.  

 

After Class

  • MasteringChemistry's Organic Chemistry Drawing Tool is a customized version of Java Free MarvinSketch that accommodates the diversity of structures and reaction mechanisms inherent to learning organic chemistry while providing students with a wrong answer specific feedback. This educational version of MarvinSketch has been customized in response to input from hundreds of undergraduate students. The drawing tool includes comprehensive MasteringChemistry tutorials, specific to drawing with MarvinSketch, that equip students to start quickly drawing organic structures and mechanisms to complete homework. The tutorials cover how to accurately draw reaction mechanisms, how to modify answers, and how to use the palette. All mechanism-based problems provide feedback specific to each step of the reaction, and new visual cues help clarify exact placement of arrows, enable selection of the electron, and highlight which bonds have been formed or broken.

  • 20 Key Mechanism boxes highlight the fundamental mechanistic principles that recur throughout the course and are the basis for some of the longer, more complex mechanisms. Each describes the steps of the reaction in detail with a specific example to reinforce the mechanism and a concluding problem to help students absorb these essential reactions.
  • Over 50 Mechanism boxes help students understand how specific reactions occur by zooming in on each individual step in detail.
  • UPDATED! Art has been revised throughout to provide consistency and clarity in the text, giving students access to detailed representations of molecular and orbital art.

Essential Problem Solving Skills help students navigate problems and key topics in the text.
