A friendly, engaging text that reveals connections between chemistry, health, and the environment
Chemistry: An Introduction to General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, 13th Edition is the ideal resource for anyone interested in learning about allied health. Assuming no prior knowledge of chemistry, author Karen Timberlake engages readers with her friendly presentation style, revealing connections between the structure and behavior of matter and its role in health and the environment. Aiming to provide a better learning experience, the text highlights the relevance of chemistry through real-world examples. Activities and applications throughout the program couple chemistry concepts with health and environmental career applications to help readers understand why the content matters. The text also fosters development of problem-solving skills, while helping readers visualize and understand concepts through its engaging figures, sample problems, and concept maps.
The 13th Edition expands on Karen Timberlake’s main tenets: relevance, a clinical focus, educational research, and learning design. New applications added to questions and problem sets emphasize the material’s relevance, while updated chapter openers with follow-up stories help readers form a basis for making decisions about issues concerning health and the environment.
