This textbook is available for free download at the OpenStax website, but as many students prefer the convenience of a printed book, we offer this book in partnership with OpenStax to provide an affordable printed option for college students.
BOOK SUMMARY: Chemistry: Atoms First is a peer\-reviewed, openly licensed introductory textbook produced through a collaborative publishing partnership between OpenStax and the University of Connecticut and UConn Undergraduate Student Government Association. This title is an adaptation of the OpenStax Chemistry text and covers scope and sequence requirements of the two\-semester general chemistry course. Reordered to fit an atoms first approach, this title introduces atomic and molecular structure much earlier than the traditional approach, delaying the introduction of more abstract material so students have time to acclimate to the study of chemistry. Chemistry: Atoms First also provides a basis for understanding the application of quantitative principles to the chemistry that underlies the entire course.
ABOUT OPENSTAX: OpenStax course materials are the most widely used OER textbooks in the world. Always free in digital format, the books are also available low cost in full\-color hardcover and B\x26W paperback print formats.
