On Order



Designed to be used with Spencer, Rickard, and Bodner's Chemistry: A Guided Inquiry is filled with activities that get students actively engaged in the material. These activites train students to examine data, written descriptions, and figures to develop important chemical concepts for themselves.

Each activity is followed by a series of Critical Thinking Questions, which lead students through the thought process that results in the construction of a particular concept or idea. Finally, students work on Skill Development Exercises and Problems that reinforce key ideas developed in class and enable them to practice applying those ideas to new situations.
