Are you afraid of unfamiliar questions? Do you struggle to know how even to begin answering them? Problem solved!
Use the Workbooks in Chemistry series to:
- Know the facts: review the concepts you need to draw on to answer the question
- Understand the strategy: learn how to approach each question in a systematic way
- Master the solution: get to the right answer first time
The Workbooks in Chemistry series takes a worked example led approach to help you develop the problem-solving skills you need to understand how to approach unfamiliar questions and to answer them successfully.
Written to build the confidence of every reader, its extensive worked examples, enriched with guidance and advice, are matched with relevant problems to help you maximise your performance and achieve success during the formative early years of your degree programme, and beyond.
Dr Joanne Elliott is an Associate Professor in Physical Chemistry at the University of Reading and a Fellow of the HEA. She teaches physical chemistry throughout the undergraduate course. Her research interests lie in the field of electrochemistry and nanostructured materials, especially with regard to electroanalysis, surface catalysis, and the development of modified electrodes.
Elizabeth Page is Professor of Chemical Education at the University of Reading where she teaches inorganic and coordination chemistry. She is also the first year tutor in the Department and her educational work focuses on the secondary to tertiary transition, and team and problem based learning.
