Written for students taking either the University of Cambridge Advanced Level examinations or the International Baccalaureate examinations, this guidebook covers essential topics and concepts under both stipulated chemistry syllabi. The book is written in such a way as to guide the reader through the understanding and applications of essential chemical concepts using the problem solving approach. The authors have also retained the popular discourse feature from their previous two books — Understanding Advanced Physical Inorganic Chemistry and Understanding Advanced Organic and Analytical Chemistry — to help learners better understand and see for themselves how the concepts should be applied to solve problems. Based on the Socratic Method, questions are implanted throughout the book to help facilitate the reader's development in forming logical conclusions of concepts and the way they are being applied to explain the problems. In addition, the authors have also included important summaries and concept maps to help learners recall, remember, reinforce and apply the fundamental chemical concepts in a simple way.

This book is a continuation of authors' previous six books — Understanding Advanced Physical Inorganic Chemistry, Understanding Advanced Organic and Analytical Chemistry, Understanding Advanced Chemistry Through Problem Solving Vol. I & II, Understanding Basic Chemistry and Understanding Basic Chemistry Through Problem Solving, retaining the main refutational characteristics of the previous books with the strategic inclusion of think-aloud questions to promote conceptual understanding during an experimental planning. These essential questions would make learners aware of the rationale behind each procedural step, the amount of chemical used and types of apparatus that are appropriate for the experiment. The book provides a fundamental important scaffolding to aid students to create their own understanding of how to plan an experiment based on the given reagent and apparatus. It guides the students in integrating the various concepts that they have learnt into a coherent and meaningful conceptual network during experimental planning. Existing A-level or IB guidebooks generally introduce concepts in a matter-of-fact manner. This book adds a unique pedagogical edge which few can rival. This book is essential and useful in order for students to be adequately prepared for their high stake examinations.

Towards A Framework For Representational Competence In Science Education

This book covers the current state of thinking and what it means to have a framework of representational competence and how such theory can be used to shape our understanding of the use of representations in science education, assessment, and instruction. Currently, there is not a consensus in science education regarding representational competence as a unified theoretical framework. There are multiple theories of representational competence in the literature that use differing perspectives on what competence means and entails. Furthermore, dependent largely on the discipline, language discrepancies cause a potential barrier for merging ideas and pushing forward in this area. While a single unified theory may not be a realistic goal, there needs to be strides taken toward working as a unified research community to better investigate and interpret representational competence. An objective of this book is to initiate thinking about a representational competence theoretical framework across science educators, learning scientists, practitioners and scientists. As such, we have divided the chapters into three major themes to help push our thinking forward: presenting current thinking about representational competence in science education, assessing representational competence within learners, and using our understandings to structure instruction.

This book provides an introduction to the scientific fundamentals of groundwater and geothermal systems. In a simple and didactic manner the different water and energy problems existing in deformable porous rocks are explained as well as the corresponding theories and the mathematical and numerical tools that lead to modeling and solving them. This approach provides the reader with a thorough understanding of the basic physical laws of thermoporoelastic rocks, the partial differential equations representing these laws and the principal numerical methods, which allow finding approximate solutions of the corresponding mathematical models. The book also presents the form in which specific useful models can be generated and solved. The text is introductory in the sense that it explains basic themes of the systems mentioned in three areas: engineering, physics and mathematics. All the laws and equations introduced in this book are formulated carefully based on fundamental physical principles. This way, the reader will understand the key importance of mathematics applied to all the subjects. Simple models are emphasized and solved with numerous examples. For more sophisticated and advanced models the numerical techniques are described and developed carefully. This book will serve as a synoptic compendium of the fundamentals of fluid, solute and heat transport, applicable to all types of subsurface systems, ranging from shallow aquifers down to deep geothermal reservoirs. The book will prove to be a useful textbook to senior undergraduate and graduate students, postgraduates, professional geologists and geophysicists, engineers, mathematicians and others working in the vital areas of groundwater and geothermal resources.

The derivation of structural information from spectroscopic datais now an integral part of organic chemistry courses at allUniversities. A critical part of any such course is asuitable set of problems to develop the student’sunderstanding of how structures are determined fromspectra. Organic Structures from Spectra, Fifth Edition is acarefully chosen set of more than 280 structural problems employingthe major modern spectroscopic techniques, a selection of 27problems using 2D-NMR spectroscopy, more than 20 problemsspecifically dealing with the interpretation of spin-spin couplingin proton NMR spectra and 8 problems based on the quantitativeanalysis of mixtures using proton and carbon NMRspectroscopy. All of the problems are graded to develop andconsolidate the student’s understanding of organicspectroscopy. The accompanying text is descriptive and onlyexplains the underlying theory at a level which is sufficient totackle the problems. The text includes condensed tables ofcharacteristic spectral properties covering the frequentlyencountered functional groups. The examples themselves have been selected to include allimportant common structural features found in organic compounds andto emphasise connectivity arguments. Many of the compoundswere synthesised specifically for this purpose. There aremany more easy problems, to build confidence and demonstrate basicprinciples, than in other collections. The fifth edition of this popular textbook: • includes more than 250 new spectra and more than 25completely new problems; • now incorporates an expanded suite of new problemsdealing with the analysis of 2D NMR spectra (COSY, C H Correlationspectroscopy, HMBC, NOESY and TOCSY); • has been expanded and updated to reflect the newdevelopments in NMR and to retire older techniques that are nolonger in common use; • provides a set of problems dealing specifically withthe quantitative analysis of mixtures using NMR spectroscopy; • features proton NMR spectra obtained at 200, 400 and600 MHz and 13C NMR spectra include DEPT experiments as well asproton-coupled experiments; • contains 6 problems in the style of the experimentalsection of a research paper and two examples of fully workedsolutions. Organic Structures from Spectra, Fifth Edition will proveinvaluable for students of Chemistry, Pharmacy and Biochemistrytaking a first course in Organic Chemistry. Contents Preface Introduction Ultraviolet Spectroscopy Infrared Spectroscopy Mass Spectrometry Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy 2DNMR Problems Index Reviews from earlier editions “Your book is becoming one of the “go to”books for teaching structure determination here in theStates. Great work!” “…I would definitely state that this book is themost useful aid to basic organic spectroscopy teaching in existenceand I would strongly recommend every instructor in this area to useit either as a source of examples or as a classtextbook”. Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry “Over the past year I have trained many students usingproblems in your book - they initially find it as a task. Butafter doing 3-4 problems with all their brains activities...working out the rest of the problems become a mania. They getaddicted to the problem solving and every time they solve a problemby themselves, their confident level also increases.” “I am teaching the fundamentals of MolecularSpectroscopy and your books represent excellent sources ofspectroscopic problems for students.”
