Texas World of Chemistry

World of Chemistry was developed specifically for high school students.

It is known for its accessibility with its use of excellent visuals, numerous problem-solving examples, wide range of end-of-chapter exercises, and real-world applications. A unique Table of Contents keeps student needs in mind. Macro-to-micro organization introduces the “language” of chemistry early and delays coverage of atomic theory and bonding until later.
