This solid, yet value-priced paperback gives you the background and confidence you'll need to succeed in chemistry. Stoker focuses on the most important topics—omitting organic and biochemistry chapters—and teaches the problem-solving skills students in this course need. Each topic is developed at “ground level,” and continues step by step until the level of sophistication required for a further chemistry course is attained.
This textbook emphasizes real-life applications, problem solving, data interpretation, geometric concepts, and critical thinking. Coverage includes graphs and functions, quadratic equations and functions, conic sections, and exponential and logarithmic functions. Answers and solutions to selected exercises are appended.
