Building a Foundation with an Integrated Learning Experience. At its core, Introductory Chemistry is the result of a unique author vision to develop a robust combination of text and digital resources that motivate and build student confidence while providing a foundation for their success. Kevin Revell knows and understands students today. His thoughtful narrative/video/interactive program works seamlessly to provide the most accessible and engaging set of resources for introductory chemistry available. The same author voice is mirrored in all print and digital content, allowing students flexibility and ensuring a fully supported learning experience--whether using a book or going completely digital! Building a Foundation for Retention and Success. Introductory Chemistry introduces students to chemistry with an exceptionally engaging writing style that not only promotes understanding but uses devices like storytelling and analogies to help students learn at a deeper level and retain concepts. Interactive activities and online tutorials offer students targeted, hands-on practice with the most difficult concepts in the course and provide a foundation for conceptual understanding and problem solving skills. Moving from comprehension to retention, students solidify their understanding of material to the point where they just "know it." Building a Foundation... Your Way! Written and developed as a flexible print and digital resource, Introductory Chemistry is designed to serve as a teaching and learning tool to meet instructors and students where they are today and provide support and tools tailored to various learning and teaching styles. Introductory Chemistry comes with a full suite of traditional textbook and lecture resources to support a traditional lecture-based course, as well as resources that make the transition to a more active classroom easier for instructors interested in doing so. Instructors who already subscribe to active learning techniques will also find tools to complement their efforts. Students can choose to access the content in the learning environment that best fits their needs: the printed narrative and pedagogy, the eBook and interactive digital tools, the video lecture modules, or a combination.

There is a need in the higher education arena for a book that responds to the need for using technology in a classroom of tech-savvy students. This book is filled with illustrative examples of questions and teaching activities that use classroom response systems from a variety of disciplines (with a discipline index). The book also incorporates results from research on the effectiveness of the technology for teaching. Written for instructional designers and re-designers as well as faculty across disciplines. A must-read for anyone interested in interactive teaching and the use of clickers. This book draws on the experiences of countless instructors across a wide range of disciplines to provide both novice and experienced teachers with practical advice on how to make classes more fun and more effective.”--Eric Mazur, Balkanski Professor of Physics and Applied Physics, Harvard University, and author, Peer Instruction: A User’s Manual “Those who come to this book needing practical advice on using ‘clickers’ in the classroom will be richly rewarded: with case studies, a refreshing historical perspective, and much pedagogical ingenuity. Those who seek a deep, thoughtful examination of strategies for active learning will find that here as well—in abundance. Dr. Bruff achieves a marvelous synthesis of the pragmatic and the philosophical that will be useful far beyond the life span of any single technology.” --Gardner Campbell, Director, Academy for Teaching and Learning, and Associate Professor of Literature, Media, and Learning, Honors College, Baylor University

What happens when a graduate of MIT, the bastion of technological advancement, and his bride move to a community so primitive in its technology that even Amish groups consider it antiquated? Eric Brende conceives a real-life experiment: to see if, in fact, all our cell phones, wide-screen TVs, and SUVs have made life easier and better -- or whether life would be preferable without them. By turns, the query narrows down to a single question: What is the least we need to achieve the most? With this in mind, the Brendes ditch their car, electric stove, refrigerator, running water, and everything else motorized or "hooked to the grid" and begin an eighteen-month trial run -- one that dramatically changes the way they live, and proves entertaining and surprising to readers. Better OFF is a smart, often comedic, and always riveting book that also mingles scientific analysis with the human story, demonstrating how a world free of technological excess can shrink stress -- and waistlines -- and expand happiness, health, and leisure. Our notion that technophobes are backward gets turned on its head as the Brendes realize that the crucial technological decisions of their adopted Minimite community are made more soberly and deliberately than in the surrounding culture, and the result is greater -- not lesser -- mastery over the conditions of human existence.
