Chemical Principles, 5th edition is part of the WebAssign Premium series from W. H. Freeman.

WebAssign Premium includes a large selection of online homework problems, interactive tutorials and resources, and a complete eBook at one low price.

Integrated into WebAssign Premium are a number of dynamic student resources developed specifically for this text. Every problem includes a link to the appropriate section of a complete interactive eBook, (also available through a dynamic table of contents from their WebAssign homepage), allowing students to highlight and take notes as they read. Other premium resources include:

  • TOOLBOX TUTORIALS, based on the Toolboxes in the textbook, present major types of calculations, in an interactive format. They demonstrate the connections between concepts and problem solving and are designed as hands-on learning aids and handy summaries of key materials.
  • CHEMCASTS replicate the face-to-face experience of watching an instructor work a problem. Using a virtual whiteboard, the ChemCast tutors show students the steps involved in solving key worked examples, while explaining the concepts along the way. ChemCasts can be viewed online or downloaded to a portable media device, such as an iPod.

Questions Available within WebAssign

Most questions from this textbook are available in WebAssign. The online questions are identical to the textbook questions except for minor wording changes necessary for Web use. Whenever possible, variables, numbers, or words have been randomized so that each student receives a unique version of the question. This list is updated nightly.
