FOUNDATIONS OF CHEMISTRY A foundation-level guide to chemistry for physical, life sciences and engineering students Foundations of Chemistry: An Introductory Course for Science Students fills a gap in the literature to provide a basic chemistry text aimed at physical sciences, life sciences and engineering students. The authors, noted experts on the topic, offer concise explanations of chemistry theory and the principles that are typically reviewed in most one year foundation chemistry courses and first year degree-level chemistry courses for non-chemists. The authors also include illustrative examples and information on the most recent applications in the field. Foundations of Chemistry is an important text that outlines the basic principles in each area of chemistry - physical, inorganic and organic - building on prior knowledge to quickly expand and develop a student's knowledge and understanding. Key features include: Worked examples showcase core concepts and practice questions. Margin comments signpost students to knowledge covered elsewhere and are used to highlight key learning objectives. Chapter summaries list the main concepts and learning points.

Övrig information

Philippa B. Cranwell is Associate Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Reading. She has extensive experience of teaching students chemistry, ranging from A-level to Foundation level and higher. She has co-authored several texts relating to both practical and theoretical organic chemistry. She actively undertakes research in the field of chemistry education and regularly publishes her work. She was awarded a University of Reading Teaching Fellowship in 2016 for her contribution to teaching and learning. Elizabeth M. Page is Emeritus Professor of Chemistry Education at the University of Reading. She has over 30 years experience of teaching chemistry at Foundation level and higher. She is author of several text books for life-sciences and chemistry students. Elizabeth has been an examiner for A level chemistry and helped in the design of the revised A level specifications in chemistry. During her time at Reading she established a strong network of chemistry teachers, providing a forum for discussions and guidance in teaching GCSE and A level chemistry. Elizabeth was awarded the Royal Society of Chemistry Education prize for her work with chemistry teachers and is a National and University of Reading Teaching Fellow.
