New Review: National Geographic Learning/Cengage Learning’s Chemistry (Zumdahl), AP Edition, 10th Edition

Cengage Learning's Chemistry (Zumdahl)Learning List has reviewed print resources for Cengage Learning’s Chemistry (Zumdahl), AP Edition, 10th Edition. This comprehensive product supports instruction in Advanced Placement (AP) Chemistry courses. Content is available in print and eBook formats with additional online components. Instruction emphasizes modeling, problem solving, and the real-world applications of chemistry.

Chemistry emphasizes problem solving and the use of models to represent chemical events and phenomena. The text’s general approach to problem solving, or “conceptual problem solving,” is framed in terms of the questions “Where are we going?” and “How do we get there?,” the solution, and a “Reality Check” evaluation of the solution’s reasonableness. “Interactive Examples” of problem-solving strategies are integrated throughout the text and provide step-by-step guidance in obtaining solutions and reference similar problems in end-of-chapter exercises. Specific problem-solving strategies (e.g., “Solving a Stoichiometry Problem Involving Masses of Reactants and Products”) are highlighted in textboxes and illustrated in subsequent examples.

Instruction in the use of models begins with a clear explanation of each model and accompanying illustrations followed by the quantitative expression of the model. Students learn to construct and test models and evaluate their failures. End-of-chapter activities include sets of multiple-choice and free-response questions formatted to reflect the AP exam.

National Geographic Learning/ Cengage Learning’s Biology: The Unity and Diversity of Life is a comprehensive biology course that supports instruction in Advanced Placement (AP) Biology courses.  Resources are available in print and eBook formats. Learning List recently reviewed eBook and digital materials for the course.

Biology: The Unity and Diversity of Life begins with a chapter that introduces the course’s themes (i.e., how living things are alike and different), the scientific method and experiments in biology, analysis of experimental results, and the limits of science. Subsequent chapters address cellular life, genetics, evolution, biodiversity, plants, animals, and ecology. eBooks contain vivid photographs, illustrations, and animations that help clarify concepts. Information about key figures and their contributions to science (e.g., Georges Cuvier), issue-related essays, and case studies are integrated throughout instruction.

Online materials to accompany chapter beginnings include a “How Would You Vote?” feature, that presents an issue related to the chapter’s content (e.g., What is the best way to deal with viral infections?). Students share their views in a discussion forum and choose a response (i.e., vote) from a set of multiple choice answers.  The question is revisited again at the close of the chapter to see if students’ thinking has changed. Online resources include highlighting and note taking tools, an audio reader, an interactive dictionary and glossary, flashcards of key terms and vocabulary, and an online study guide for each chapter, and a set of apps to support homework, study skills, and biology content.
