Chemistry 10th Edition by Zumdahl in pdf


Free download Chemistry (10th edition) written by Steven S. Zumdahl, Susan A. Zumdahl and Donald J. DeCoste in PDF published in 2018.

As per writers, “conceptual learning and problem solving are fundamental to the approach of Chemistry. Our philosophy is to help students learn to think like chemists so that they can apply the process of problem solving to all aspects of their lives. 

We give students the tools to become critical thinkers: to ask questions, to apply rules and models, and to evaluate the outcome. It was also our mission to create a media program that embodies this philosophy so that when instructors and students look online for either study aids or online homework, each resource supports the goals of the textbook—a strong emphasis on models, real-world applications, and visual learning.

This book contains numerous discussions, illustrations, and exercises aimed at overcoming misconceptions. It has become increasingly clear from our own teaching experience that students often struggle with chemistry because they misunderstand many of the fundamental concepts. In this text, we have gone to great lengths to provide illustrations and explanations aimed at giving students a more accurate

picture of the fundamental ideas of chemistry. In particular, we have attempted to represent the microscopic world of chemistry so that students have a picture in their

minds of “what the atoms and molecules are doing.” The art program along with the animations emphasize this goal.

We have also placed a larger emphasis on the qualitative understanding of concepts before quantitative problems are considered. 

Because using an algorithm to correctly solve a problem often masks misunderstanding—when students assume they understand the material because they got the right “answer”—it is important to probe their understanding in other ways. 

In this vein, the text includes many Critical Thinking questions throughout the text and a number of Active Learning Questions at the end of each chapter that are intended for group discussion. 

It is our experience that students often learn the most when they teach each other. Students are forced to recognize their own lack of understanding when they try and fail to explain a concept to another student.”

About the Author:

Steve Zumdahl is the author of market-leading textbooks in introductory chemistry, general chemistry, honors-level chemistry, and high school chemistry. Recently retired from his long-time position as Director of Undergraduate Programs at the University of Illinois, he has received numerous awards for his contributions to chemical education. 

These include the National Catalyst Award in recognition of his contribution to chemical education, the University of Illinois Teaching Award, the UIUC Liberal Arts and Sciences Advising Award, and the School of Chemical Sciences Teaching Award (five times). He earned his B.S. in Chemistry from Wheaton College (IL), and his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois.

Susan A. Zumdahl earned a B.S. and M.A. in Chemistry at California State University--Fullerton. She has taught science and mathematics at all levels, including middle school, high school, community college, and university. 

She is past director of the Merit Program for Emerging Scholars in Chemistry at the University of Illinois. In addition, she spearheaded the development of a sophisticated web-based electronic homework system for chemistry and is co-author on several chemistry textbooks.

Donald J. DeCoste is Associate Director of General Chemistry at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and has been teaching chemistry at the high school and college levels for 26 years. He earned his BS in Chemistry and PhD from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. 

At UIUC he has developed chemistry courses for nonscience majors, preservice secondary teachers, and preservice elementary teachers. He teaches courses in introductory chemistry and the teaching of chemistry and has received the School of Chemical Sciences Teaching Award four times. 

Don has led workshops for secondary teachers and graduate student teaching assistants, discussing the methods and benefits of getting students more actively involved in class. When not involved in teaching and advising, Don enjoys spending time with his wife and three children.
