Title: Introductory Chemistry
Author: Pitzer, Edward W
Abstract: This textbook is intended for use by college level students who will take only one course in chemistry throughout their academic career. The following is a list of areas that may require an introduction to chemistry but not a full two years of college chemistry. Food Science - Pharmacy Technician Safety and Health - Health Education Mortuary Science - Nursing Physical Therapy - Laboratory Technician Environmental Science - Hazardous Material Control Fire Investigation - Animal Science Plant Science - Phlebotomy If you are planning to go to medical school, you will need a more in depth course of “first year” chemistry. However, if you “live in fear” of college chemistry study my textbook as preparation. After all it’s free! There are two goals that I have for this textbook. The first goal is to teach the “fundamentals” of chemistry without bogging the student down with heavy theory. The second goal is to teach basic critical thinking skills. This is done by a textbook long building of a central problem solving theorem that is applied to nearly all of the problems in the book.
Description: The on-line textbook Introductory Chemistry is a brief, but succinct introduction to the fundamentals of chemistry. The textbook is designed to introduce chemistry to students who will take only one chemistry course in their academic career. To this point certain chemistry topics are covered in a generalized manner. Special emphasis is given to certain areas to assure the student receives exposure that would not normally occur in a general chemistry course. Special emphasis is given to organic chemistry and biological chemistry. These subjects are usually taught to students during the second and third years of four year college programs. In this way, students studying this text will receive some exposure to these important areas.
