Chemistry in the Community
ChemCom 4th Edition (2002)
Published by W. H. Freeman and Company
This is an older edition, but the book is brand new and has never been used. If you are teaching a chemistry or physical science course, this book is a "must-have" resource. I love all of the labs and activities that are included in the text, and use many of them each year in my classes.
"This textbook was designed to give you the opportunities to apply chemical concepts in order to help you understand the chemistry behind some important socio-technological issues. Each unit introduces issues that concern your life, your community, and the relation of chemistry to them.
Chapters include, but are not limited to: (1) Sources and Uses of Water (2) Water Purification and Treatment (3) Why We Use What We Do (4) Earth's Mineral REsources (5) Conservation (6) Petroleum - What Is It? (7) Gases in the Atmosphere (8) Radiation and Climate (9) Air Pollution (10) The Nature of Atoms (11) Food As Energy.
This book is brand new and is in mint condition.
