The Fifth Edition's new coauthor Stacey Lowery Bretz, uses visualization tools—based on Chemistry Education Research and focused on the particulate nature of matter—to help students self-assess what they know before, during, and after each chapter. Bundled with Smartwork5, this resource allows instructors to use this pedagogy as a diagnostic, and students receive hints and answer-specific feedback within the system.
