An integrated learning experience.
Students learn in many different ways and use resources that best complement their individual needs. Introductory Chemistry seamlessly integrates learning resources to fully support the individual learner so students can learn the way that works best for them.

Read or Watch Engaging Content:
A mobile-compatible, interactive eBook with embedded lecture videos, animations, and problem solving videos.
Lecture Videos created entirely by Kevin Revell, covering all content from the written text so students can watch videos.

Helps students Visualize Chemistry:
Animations and videos help students better visualize chemistry concepts at the molecular level and show step-by-step processes to promote richer understanding.
Guided Inquiry Interactives. Online tutorials and interactives allow students to explore chemistry concepts such as the interactions between two elements. Built-in guidance helps them recognize patterns and draw conclusions from the experience.
Try It, Check it, Watch Explanation in-text problems encourage students to test their skills. In the eBook format, students can check their answer or watch a step-by-step video explanation, ensuring that each student has the tools necessary to address any misconceptions, anytime and anywhere.

Written and designed for retention and success. Kevin Revell’s inviting writing style presents Introductory Chemistry in an accessible manner that students can understand, using personal stories and a clear pedagogical framework to make the content memorable and sticky.

Revell makes chemistry accessible and attainable:
Chapter-Opening Stories ground each chapter in stories of real people and how the chemistry concepts in the chapter are applied to real-world problems. Stories are revisited at the end of the chapter for a deeper understanding using what students have learned.
Personal Stories from Kevin use a friendly and welcoming tone to relate content to everyday life and encourage students to draw from their own experiences in thinking scientifically
Analogies taken directly from Kevin’s years in the classroom contextualize difficult chemical concepts, expressing big ideas to students in a framework they will understand.

Helps student develop foundational math and chemistry skills
Quick Recall Activities focus students on drilling the information in chemistry that they must memorize to achieve success, such as identifying ionic charges. A game-like interface fosters a low-stakes and fun practice environment
Guided Practice online tutorials provide extra, hands-on practice with the most difficult concepts in the course, such as unit conversion and balancing charges, and provide a foundational understanding for future work in chemistry

Framework for Learning and Retention:
Intended Learning Outcomes at the beginning of each chapter prepare students for the chapter’s content.
Key Terms are listed at the end of each chapter. In the eBook, key terms in the chapter link directly to the definition for easy access while reading.
End of each chapter Summaries encourage

Flexible teaching tools for the classroom. Introductory Chemistry includes a complete set of pre-lecture videos to provide more flexibility with lecture time and activities you can use to help get started or complement your active learning approach.

Lecture Videos All content from the written text is also represented in videos created by Kevin, so instructors can easily implement active learning in class and students can watch videos along with or in lieu of reading.
FlippedChemistry.com community started by Kevin Revell to share ideas and resources for creating a more active chemistry classroom.
In-Class Activities iClicker Questions provide instructors with ready-made assessments for use in the classroom to evaluate student learning in real time.
Speed Drills challenge students’ memory of foundational knowledge. When used as a timed self-assessment in the classroom, students are motivated to improve.
Integrated with iClicker iClicker offers simple, flexible tools to help you give students a voice and facilitate active learning in the classroom. Students can participate with the devices they already bring to class using our iClicker Reef mobile app (which works with smartphones, tablets, or laptops) or iClicker remotes.
