Book Description

January 24, 2011 0073375667 978-0073375663 7
Following in the tradition of the first six editions, the goal of this successful, issues-based textbook, Chemistry in Context, seventh edition, is to establish chemical principles on a need-to-know basis for non-science majors, enabling them to learn chemistry in the context of their own lives and significant issues facing science and the world. The non traditional approach of Chemistry in Context reflects today's technological issues and the chemistry principles imbedded within them. The seventh edition applies sustainability principles wherever possible. Global warming, alternate fuels, nutrition, and genetic engineering are examples of issues that are covered in Chemistry in Context.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Textbook. No Access Code September 8, 2011
By Sweden
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this text off of Amazon because it was 5 dollars cheaper than at the school store. Plus I could get it delivered for free instead of fighting the crowds to grab a book.

Anyway, what I did not know is that the book the school store sold came with the access code for Blackboard Connect (which is required for my class, it may not be for others). This book did not. The code costs about 30 dollars. So check with your professor before the class starts, and try to find an edition with the access code card instead of over-paying like me.

I do like the textbook though. Just heed my warning so you don't have to over-pay.

2.0 out of 5 stars Chemistry Out of Context May 18, 2014
By Kevin
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was purchased for my Chemistry in Our World class. It was more expensive than it needed to be. Also, it had little trade-in value. Although it says on the cover, "Applying Chemistry to Society" my professor covered very little practical chemistry. Therefore, I felt that the book was wasted. If you have an organized teacher this book will be interesting. Otherwise, it is little more than an expensive paperweight you will never reference.

Personal gripes aside, the book was clean and very nicely put together. Although, it can be hard to follow I believe that it is a decent chemistry book when followed correctly. However, in my case it was chemistry taught out of context and it did not help me to learn.

I would recommend this book to everyone who is interested in chemistry in an applied way. It is not the classical chemistry book. It considers practical issues and what is needed to know about chemistry in order to understand them. I teach and train teachers of young students in science, and this type of knowledge makes the connection with their students more interesting, and helps everybody to understand why chemistry is important for society.

I was not happy to find out that I still needed to spend another $60 to purchase what I already thought was coming with the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars School
I only bought it for a class I'm taking. It is not very well written though. It is good at applying the concepts to everyday life, but that's really the only part I like.
