Give students a robust conceptual foundation while building critical problem-solving skills

Robinson/McMurry/Fay’s Chemistry, known for a concise and united author voice, conceptual focus, extensive worked examples, and thoroughly constructed connections between organic, biological, and general chemistry, highlights the application of chemistry to students’ lives and careers. Lead author Jill Robinson strengthens the student orientation by creating more engaging, active learning opportunities for students and faculty.

With the 8th Edition, Robinson draws upon her exceptional teaching skills to provide new interactive experiences that help identify and address students’ preconceptions.

  • New and Updated - Worked Examples provide more than any other text on the market and are tightly integrated into the text’s flow and concise narrative. Select Worked Examples include videos of author Jill Robinson showing students how to work through the examples.
  • Updated - End-of-Chapter Problems have been reviewed and analysed by author Jill Robinson for accuracy and to ensure each problem is tied to a learning objective in the end-of-chapter Study Guide. All End-of-Chapter problems now tie to specific examples throughout the text, supporting the intuitive flow of material.
  • Extension of Conceptual Worked Examples help students move away from memorisation as a primary problem-solving method by explicitly showing them the relationship between similar but related concepts and procedures while facilitating their ability to recognise and respond to these challenges.
  • In-chapter Conceptual Worked Examples give students their first exposure to working through problems to develop an understanding of the chapter’s concepts. Many of the worked examples include a step called conceptual apply.
  • In-chapter Conceptual Problems give students an immediate opportunity to solve problems that test their understanding of chemical concepts.
  • End-of-chapter Conceptual Problems give students an opportunity to test that they understand all the major concepts in the chapter before moving on to the multi-concept problems that require this understanding.
