100% Pure Chemical Understanding Every morning many of us are energized by a cup of coffee. Imagine if you were as energized by understanding the chemistry in your morning cup--from the coffee trees, which fill red coffee berries with caffeine and a variety of other chemical substances, to the feathery crystals formed by the caffeine molecules, to the decaffeinating machines, which use liquid solvents to remove this stimulant from some of the beans. Now, that's real chemical understanding! Olmsted and Williams' Fourth Edition of Chemistry focuses on helping you see and think about the world (and even your coffee) as a chemist. This text helps you understand how chemical phenomena are governed by what happens at the molecular level, apply critical thinking skills to chemical concepts and problems, and master the basic mathematical techniques needed for quantitative reasoning. You'll see the world as chemists do, and learn to appreciate the chemical processes all around us. A Fourth Edition with a lot of new perks! * Revisions include a new, early energy chapter; revised coverage of bonding; expanded coverage of intermolecular forces; and increased coverage of multiple equilibria, including polyprotic acids. * New pedagogy strengthens students' critical thinking and problem-solving skills. * Visual Summaries at the end of each chapter use molecular and diagrammatic visual elements to summarize essential skills, concepts, equations, and terms. * eGrade Plus provides an integrated suite of teaching and learning resources, including a complete online version of the text, links between problems and relevant sections in the online text, practice quizzes, the Visual Tutor, Interactive LearningWare problems, and lab demos, as well as homework management and presentation features for instructors.

This book examines the fundamental concepts and implementation procedures essential to applied engineers and scientists working with discrete signal processing and inverse problem solving. Based on the original edition, this expanded and enriched version will appeal not only to the civil engineering community but also to aerospace and mechanical engineers and the applied science communities at large. Readers will benefit from the authors' broad range of experience, which is captured in new problems, figures, and exercises. Solutions for the sample problems, MathCAD files, typical signals, digital 2D pictures and data for inverse problems will be made available on an accompanying website, increasing the usefulness of this text. This text focuses on semi-formal demonstrations of concepts with emphasis on clear intuitive understanding, leading to the identification of potentials and limitations, supported by step-by-step implementation procedures.

This survey book reviews four interrelated areas: (i) the relevance of heuristics in problem-solving approaches – why they are important and what research tells us about their use; (ii) the need to characterize and foster creative problem-solving approaches – what type of heuristics helps learners devise and practice creative solutions; (iii) the importance that learners formulate and pursue their own problems; and iv) the role played by the use of both multiple-purpose and ad hoc mathematical action types of technologies in problem-solving contexts – what ways of reasoning learners construct when they rely on the use of digital technologies, and how technology and technology approaches can be reconciled.
