General Chemistry: Principles, Patterns, and Applications
by Bruce Averill, Patricia Eldredge
Publisher: Saylor Foundation 2011
Number of pages: 2365
The authors emphasize the positive aspects of chemistry and its relationship to students' lives, which requires bringing in applications early and often. In addition, the authors feel that many first year chemistry students have an enthusiasm for biologically and medically relevant topics, so they use an integrated approach in their text that includes explicit discussions of biological and environmental applications of chemistry.
