Problem-solving is one of the most challenging aspects students encounter in general chemistry courses leading to frustration and failure. Consequently, many students become less motivated to take additional chemistry courses after their first year. This book deals with calculations in generalchemistry and its primary goal is to prevent frustration by providing students with innovative, intuitive, and systematic strategies to problem-solving in chemistry. The material addresses this issue by providing several sample problems with carefully explained step-by-step solutions for eachconcept. Key concepts, basic theories, and equations are provided and worked examples are selected to reflect possible ways problems could be presented to students.
Dr. Chris Oriakhi is a chartered chemist and a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. He has taught and practiced chemistry at the high school and college level for almost 30 years. He is currently a senior member of the technical staff at Hewlett-Packard Company practicing industrial chemistry.
