Understanding Advanced Chemistry Through Problem Solving (Vol. 1)

S$26.75

Written for students taking either the University of Cambridge Advanced Level examinations or the International Baccalaureate examinations, this guidebook covers essential topics and concepts under both stipulated chemistry syllabi.

Key Features:

  • The book provides fundamental important scaffolding to aid students in creating their own understanding of the chemical concepts
  • The book encourages critical thinking and meaningful applications, using the basic concepts learnt
  • The book guides the students to integrate the various concepts they have learnt into a coherent and meaningful conceptual network

Contents: Volume 1:

  • Part I: Physical Chemistry: Atomic Structure and the Periodic Table; Chemical Bonding; Ideal Gas and Gas Laws; Chemical Thermodynamics; Reaction Kinetics; Chemical Equilibria; Ionic Equilibria; Redox Chemistry and Electrochemical Cells;
  • Part II: Inorganic Chemistry: The Periodic Table: Chemical Periodicity; Chemistry of Groups 2 and 7; Introduction to Transition Metals and Their Chemistry; 

The book is written in such a way as to guide the reader through the understanding and applications of essential chemical concepts using the problem solving approach. The book helps learners better understand and see for themselves how the concepts should be applied to solve problems. Based on the Socratic Method, questions are implanted throughout the book to help facilitate the reader's development in forming logical conclusions of concepts and the way they are being applied to explain the problems.

In addition, the authors have also included important summaries and concept maps to help learners recall, remember, reinforce and apply the fundamental chemical concepts in a simple way!

The authors have also retained the popular discourse feature from their previous two books — Understanding Advanced Physical Inorganic Chemistry and Understanding Advanced Organic and Analytical Chemistry.

Cover: Soft
Number of Pages: 340 each
ISBN: 978-981-4590-98-3
