Faculty Resource and Organizational Guide (FROG)
The Faculty Resource and Organizational Guide (FROG), available on the companion website, is a complementary resource to help educators complete “Investigate This” activities featured in the text. FROG also offers suggestions for alternatives, tips on how to use the activity in class discussion, pictures, and typical results. Extensive solutions (not just answers) to "Consider This" activities, "Check This" activities, and end-of-chapter problems are provided.
FROG and all illustrations in Chemistry can be downloaded from the web and used in presentations. Instructors can also refer to the e-mail listserv to interact with other users of the text.
Molecular Model Kit
The Molecular Model Kit aids students with modeling activities emphasized in the text. The kit is also useful for students taking organic and biochemistry courses.
Online Personal Tutor
Students can use the online tutor to monitor their understanding of the text through diagnostic tests. The tutor provides test results and suggestions for study.
Online Laboratory Program
The online lab supports active and cooperative student learning. Students must work in teams to devise solutions to posed problems. Limited instructions are given to make each solution unique to the user.
