Chemistry, 4th Edition

ISBN: 9780730363286

The fourth edition of Chemistry, 4th Edition (Blackman et al.) continues the substantial commitment of Wiley to Chemistry Education in Australia and New Zealand by providing the appropriate mix of organic, inorganic and physical chemistry to the typical local chemistry course. All chapters have been revised, with selected chapter openers and examples being updated to reflect the latest developments in the field of chemistry. New worked examples, practice exercises and end of chapter questions have been added throughout.

Available as a full-colour printed textbook with an interactive eBook code, this title enables every student to master concepts and succeed in assessment, with features designed to get the most of out learning by taking the roadblocks out of self-study.

You can expect components like lightboard videos of worked problems to help you break down the more challenging concepts into bite-sized chunks, animations and interactivities that are embedded at the point of learning to bring chemistry to life, Concepts Check questions at the end of every chapter that provide instant feedback and reinforces what you’re learning, and the ability to switch between reading something tangible and studying with online (or offline!) resources to allow for more efficient study with the option to search, highlight and annotate within the text.

Key Features

  • Lightboard videos of worked problems from trusted educators that help engage you in a meaningful way while breaking down the more challenging concepts into bite-sized chunks.
  • Concept reviews, interactive worked exampls, visualisations and knowledge check questions in-situ allow you to review, practice and apply what you’ve learnt.
  • Topics are broken down into digestible chapters that help ease you into the content.
