Title: Introductory Chemistry NEW!
Author: Tro
Edition: 5
Copyright: 2015

Make chemistry relevant to students
Now in its fifth edition, Introductory Chemistry Essentials continues to foster deep engagement in the course by showing how chemistry manifests in students’ daily lives.

Title: General Chemistry (original and reprint available)
Author: Chang
Edition: 7
Copyright: 2013

The sixth edition of General Chemistry continues the tradition of presenting only the material that is essential for a one-year general chemistry course. It strikes a balance between theory and application by incorporating real-world examples; helping students visualize the three-dimensional atomic and molecular structures that are the basis of chemical activity; and developing problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Although the sixth edition incorporates many impressive features, such as macro to micro artwork, animations correlated to the text, and hand-sketched worked examples, General Chemistry is still 200 to 300 pages shorter and much less expensive than other two-semester textbooks. Dr. Chang’s concise-but-thorough approach will appeal to efficiency-minded instructors and value-conscious students.


 

Title: Introductory Chemistry with Lab Manual NEW!

Author: Corwin

Edition: 6

Copyright: 2015

Unlike other introductory chemistry texts, all the materials are coherently integrated including the textbook, student solutions manual, laboratory manual, instructor’s manual and test item file. 
To help students learn chemical skills and concepts more effectively, Corwin highlights the connection between key concepts and key problem-solving skills through critical thinking. Math and problem solving are covered early in the text; Corwin builds student confidence and ability through innovative pedagogy and technology formulated to meet student needs. This revision retains all the strengths of the previous editions, while adding emphasis on conceptual understanding and critical thinking.

Algebra, Trigonometry
 

Title: Algebra and Trigonometry (reprint)
Author: Coburn
Edition: 2
Copyright: 2010

Three components contribute to a theme sustained throughout the Coburn Series: that of laying a firm foundation, building a solid framework, and providing strong connections. Not only does Coburn present a sound problem-solving process to teach students to recognize a problem, organize a procedure, and formulate a solution, the text encourages students to see beyond procedures in an effort to gain a greater understanding of the big ideas behind mathematical concepts.
Written in a readable, yet mathematically mature manner appropriate for college algebra level students, Coburn’s Algebra & Trigonometry uses narrative, extensive examples, and a range of exercises to connect seemingly disparate mathematical topics into a cohesive whole. Coburn’s hallmark applications are born out of the author’s extensive experiences in and outside the classroom, and appeal to the vast diversity of students and teaching methods in this course area.
Benefiting from the feedback of hundreds of teachers and students across the country, Algebra & Trigonometry second edition, continues to emphasize connections in order to improve the level of student engagement in mathematics and increase their chances of success in college algebra.

Dozens of new applications emphasize the real-world relevance of economics for today’s students through interesting news articles, realistic case studies, and engaging problems. The premier ancillary package is the most extensive in the industry, using a team of instructors/preparers that have been with the project since the first edition. The text material is again fully integrated into Aplia, the best-selling online homework solution. “I have tried to put myself in the position of someone seeing economics for the first time. My goal is to emphasize the material that students should and do find interesting about the study of the economy.”--N. Gregory Mankiw.
