Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
"Introduction to Chemistry," 2e by Bauer/Birk/Marks offers today's student a fresh perspective to the introduction of chemistry. This new textbook offers a conceptual approach to chemistry by starting first with macroscopic phenomena, and then presenting the underlying microscopic detail. Each chapter opens with a real-life scenario that helps students connect abstract chemical concepts to their own lives. The math found in "Introduction to Chemistry," 2e is introduced on a need-to-know basis, with "Math Toolboxes" in select chapters to help support the math skills required in that chapter.

This textbook is designed for the freshman-level Introductory Chemistry course that does not have a chemistry prerequisite and is suitable for either a one-semester course or a two-semester sequence. The book targets introductory courses taken by non-physical science majors who may be in allied health, agriculture, or other disciplines that do not require the rigor of a science major ́s General Chemistry course, or for students fulfilling university liberal arts requirements for science credits. In addition, students who lack a strong high school science background often take the course as a preparation for the regular General Chemistry sequence.
