Chemistry: Atoms First (OpenStax College)
Chemistry: Atoms First is an adaptation of OpenStax Chemistry text and covers scope and sequence requirements of the two-semester general chemistry course. Re-organized to fit an "atoms first" approach, this title introduces atoms and molecular structure much earlier than the traditional approach, delaying the introduction of more abstract material so students have time to acclimate to the study of chemistry. Chemistry: Atoms First also provides a basis for understanding the application of quantitative principles to the chemistry that underlies the entire course.
