Chemistry: Atoms First is an atoms-first adaptation of Chemistry. The intention of “atoms-first” involves a few basic principles: first, it introduces atomic and molecular structure much earlier than the traditional approach, and it threads these themes through subsequent chapters. This approach may be chosen as a way to delay the introduction of material such as stoichiometry that students traditionally find abstract and difficult, thereby allowing students time to acclimate their study skills to chemistry. Additionally, it gives students a basis for understanding the application of quantitative principles to the chemistry that underlies the entire course. It also aims to center the study of chemistry on the atomic foundation that many will expand upon in a later course covering organic chemistry, easing that transition when the time arrives.

Chemistry: Atoms First is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of a two-semester general chemistry course and includes topics such as thermodynamics, advanced theories of covalent bonding and acid base equilibria. The course provides an essential opportunity for all students to learn the core concepts of chemistry and understand how those concepts apply to the world around us. The course also includes a number of innovative interactive exercises and real-world applications, designed to enhance student learning and reinforce the curriculum.
