HELP STUDENTS VISUALISE AND UNDERSTAND MULTIPLE REPRESENTATIONS IN CHEMISTRY

Stacey Lowery Bretz’s innovative pedagogy, which has been overwhelmingly popular with adopters, is based on her research on how students construct and interpret multiple representations in chemistry (particulate, symbolic, macroscopic) and includes the Particulate Review, Particulate Preview and Visual Problem Matrix found in the text and Smartwork5. Art in the Third Edition has been refined to be more pedagogically effective and address common misconceptions while bringing consistency to particulate representations across the book, in Smartwork5 problems and in the ChemTour Animations.

A CONSISTENT PROBLEM-SOLVING MODEL FOR STUDENTS USED ACROSS PLATFORMS

Using the acronym COAST (Collect and Organise, Analyse, Solve and Think about it), our problem-solving model is introduced in the first chapter, applied in every Sample Exercise and used in Smartwork5 feedback and in every problem in the solutions manual. In the Third Edition, end-of-chapter problems have been refined to better align with the text’s Learning Outcomes and provide more balance in terms of level and concept coverage.

THE MOST DYNAMIC ONLINE HOMEWORK SYSTEM FOR PRACTICE AND ASSESSMENT

Smartwork5 offers instructors a sophisticated, user-friendly platform to assess student understanding while flexible adaptive options give students a personalised learning path allowing them to reach mastery of assigned concepts. Content in the system ties directly to the text’s COAST problem-solving strategy and includes problems using Stacey Lowery Bretz’s visualisation pedagogy. Students receive coaching via extensive hints and answer-specific feedback so office hours can be more productive. Smartwork5 integrates with most campus learning management systems so students have a single sign-on and grades move directly to instructors’ gradebooks.

NEW TOOLS MAKE IT EASY TO INCORPORATE VISUALISATION PEDAGOGY INTO THE CLASSROOM

The new Interactive Instructor’s Guide helps instructors easily incorporate our unique visualisation pedagogy by compiling the many valuable teaching resources available with Chemistry: An Atoms-Focused Approach in an easily searchable online format. Search by chapter, phrase, topic or learning objective to find book-specific activities, ChemTour and Stepwise animations with discussion questions and projected visualisation questions that can be used in-class or on exams, and more.

THE HIGH-QUALITY, LOW-COST OPTION FOR GENERAL CHEMISTRY

In addition to working with authors who are expert teachers and chemistry education researchers, Norton heavily invests in developing the content in the book and resources that accompany it. We commission and respond to feedback from instructors at a wide range of institutions to ensure we’re meeting the needs of your students. We also use a rigorous accuracy programme so you can trust the content in the resources you assign students use before, during and after class.
