This Is A Course In Organic Chemistry. Yikes! Isn?T That The Killer Course That Sophomores Around The World Dread? Why Are They Teaching It To Us, Students Taking Our First Chemistry Course? How Will We Survive?
Science can be tough but that doesn't mean it can't be made fun for kids to understand. It all depends on the presentation of the subject. In this case, it's all about the combination of texts, examples and images. Because your child will be asked to answer a lot examples, true understanding will take root. Secure a copy now!
Winner of the PEN/Hemingway Award A Washington Post Notable Book One of the Best Books of the Year: NPR, Entertainment Weekly, Ann Patchett on PBS NewsHour, Minnesota Public Radio, PopSugar, Maris Kreizman, The Morning News Winner of Ploughshares’ John C. Zacharis Award Winner of a Whiting Award A Belletrist Amuse Book At first glance, the quirky, overworked narrator of Weike Wang’s debut novel seems to be on the cusp of a perfect life: she is studying for a prestigious PhD in chemistry that will make her Chinese parents proud (or at least satisfied), and her successful, supportive boyfriend has just proposed to her. But instead of feeling hopeful, she is wracked with ambivalence: the long, demanding hours at the lab have created an exquisite pressure cooker, and she doesn’t know how to answer the marriage question. When it all becomes too much and her life plan veers off course, she finds herself on a new path of discoveries about everything she thought she knew. Smart, moving, and always funny, this unique coming-of-age story is certain to evoke a winning reaction.

As the amount of information in biology expands dramatically, it becomes increasingly important for textbooks to distill the vast amount of scientific knowledge into concise principles and enduring concepts.As with previous editions, Molecular Biology of the Cell, Sixth Edition accomplishes this goal with clear writing and beautiful illustrations. The Sixth Edition has been extensively revised and updated with the latest research in the field of cell biology, and it provides an exceptional framework for teaching and learning. The entire illustration program has been greatly enhanced.Protein structures better illustrate structure–function relationships, icons are simpler and more consistent within and between chapters, and micrographs have been refreshed and updated with newer, clearer, or better images. As a new feature, each chapter now contains intriguing openended questions highlighting “What We Don’t Know,” introducing students to challenging areas of future research. Updated end-of-chapter problems reflect new research discussed in the text, and these problems have been expanded to all chapters by adding questions on developmental biology, tissues and stem cells, pathogens, and the immune system.
When wealthy Brittany Ellis and Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, develop a relationship after Alex discovers that Brittany is not exactly who she seems to be, they must face the disapproval of others.
There is a BIG jump between GCSE and A-Level.Lots of students find this a massive shock and sometimes find themselves sitting in class lost, not following what the teacher is saying or wishing they had chosen a different subject. This book is designed to help you get started on some of the new content and take your GCSE knowledge to a higher level. Because if you managed to get through GCSE not understanding a topic or skipping over some bits you may find you need the extra help. I'm constantly telling you the best way to learn is by practicing questions, so I've made you a book full of practice questions.135 multiple choice questions to reflect the style of exam questions, 60 equations for you to balance (in 3 different formats), 65 compounds for you to work out the formula for and a lots of things that you need to recall for A-Level.This book is not designed as a text book or revision guide, but as a workbook. There are lots of good (and bad) expensive and free revision guides out there, on my YouTube channel and other great websites. So there is no point in me adding to the masses.Taking some GCSE topics, a bit further and introducing some new topics for A-Level. This is not a complete list of all the GCSE topics that also come up at A-Level; just enough to keep you (Very) busy over the summer and give you an advantage when you start year 12.All the teaching, all the new content, is available for free on my YouTube channel, this book is for you to practice and learn. The best way to approach this is to watch the teaching video, or after class try a section and check the answers.Topics covered are... (you may feel confident in some of these topics, but are you A-Level confident?!?!)Atomic Structure Properties of ionic compoundsCovalent bonding Reference table of common ions formulae Formula of Ionic Compounds Oxidation Numbers Balancing Equations 1 Balancing Equations 2 Turning experiments in to balanced symbol equations Organic Chemistry Keywords Naming alkanesNaming Alkenes Skeletal formula Answers

Written by curriculum and specification experts, this Student Book supports and extends students through the new linear course while delivering the breadth, depth, and skills needed to succeed in the new A Levels and beyond. It develops true subject knowledge while also developing essential exam skills.
Ensure students are fully prepared for A Level Maths with practice in essential and tricky topics such as algebra. Revisit areas that may not have been studied recently due to modular courses to fill gaps in knowledge and make links. Prepare students for some of the skills required at A Level with a focus on applications of mathematics.
General Chemistry for Engineers explores the key areas of chemistry needed for engineers. This book develops material from the basics to more advanced areas in a systematic fashion. As the material is presented, case studies relevant to engineering are included that demonstrate the strong link between chemistry and the various areas of engineering. Serves as a unique chemistry reference source for professional engineers Provides the chemistry principles required by various engineering disciplines Begins with an 'atoms first' approach, building from the simple to the more complex chemical concepts Includes engineering case studies connecting chemical principles to solving actual engineering problems Links chemistry to contemporary issues related to the interface between chemistry and engineering practices
