    1. 1. Introductory Chemistry: A Foundation, 6 th Ed. Introductory Chemistry , 6 th Ed. Basic Chemistry , 6 th Ed. by Steven S. Zumdahl & Donald J. DeCoste University of Illinois
    2. 2. <ul><li>Chapter 1 An Introduction </li></ul>
    3. 3. Why Is Chemistry Important? <ul><li>In our daily lives </li></ul><ul><ul><li>New materials </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>New pharmaceuticals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>New energy sources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Food supplies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can you think of others? </li></ul></ul>
    4. 4. Why Is Chemistry Important? <ul><li>In your education, chemistry helps you: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Learn to gather and organize information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>qualitative and quantitative </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learn to find patterns in information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learn to analyze complex systems </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Develop skills to predict future events based on patterns of behavior </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Develop problem-solving skills </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>systematic approach </li></ul></ul></ul>
    5. 5. What Is Chemistry? <ul><li>The science that deals with the materials of the universe and the changes these materials undergo </li></ul><ul><li>The central science </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Understanding most other fields of science requires an understanding of chemistry </li></ul></ul>
    6. 6. Solving Problems Using a Scientific Approach <ul><li>Define the problem </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Gather information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Facts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Observations </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Propose solutions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Organize information and look for patterns </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Form hypotheses </li></ul></ul>
    7. 7. <ul><li>Evaluate your proposed solutions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Test your patterns by using them to predict what will happen </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Develop experiments </li></ul></ul>Solving Problems Using a Scientific Approach (cont.)
    8. 8. The Scientific Method <ul><li>A process of studying natural phenomena that involves making observations, forming laws and theories, and testing theories by experimentation </li></ul>
    9. 9. The Scientific Method (cont.)
    10. 10. The Scientific Method (cont.) <ul><li>While experimenting we may observe the same behavior all the time, and therefore be able to predict this behavior will always occur in the future </li></ul>
    11. 11. The Difference Between a Theory and a Law <ul><li>Law: a generally observed behavior, without explanation as to why the behavior occurs </li></ul><ul><li>Laws predict what will happen </li></ul><ul><li>Theories explain why something happens (which will also allow you to predict what will happen!) </li></ul>
    12. 12. Best Approach to Learning Chemistry <ul><li>Learn the vocab of chemistry </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Definitions of terms </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How common vocab is applied to chemistry </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Memorize important information </li></ul><ul><ul><li>e.g. Names, formulas, and charges of polyatomic ions </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Learn and practice processes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Systematic names and formulas </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dimensional analysis </li></ul></ul>
    13. 13. Best Approach to Learning Chemistry (cont.) <ul><li>Do end-of-chapter exercises to test your understanding and help you see the patterns </li></ul><ul><li>Ask questions in class </li></ul>
