For two-semester courses in General Chemistry. McMurry/Fay’s atoms-first text makes it possible to tell a cohesive story about chemistry that follows an intuitive logic by progressing from the simplest building blocks to successively more complex concepts.  It follows a unified thread of ideas that help students build a better foundation and ultimately gain a deeper understanding.  Students can more easily understand the micro-to-macro connections between unobservable atoms and the observable behavior of matter in daily life while simultaneously taking students immediately into real chemistry rather than forcing them to first spend time with arithmetic.  CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
