Frost and Deals General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry gives students a focused introduction to the fundamental and relevant connections between chemistry and life. Emphasizing the development of problem-solving skills with distinct Inquiry Questions and Activities, this text empowers students to solve problems in different and applied contexts relating to health and biochemistry. Integrated coverage of biochemical applications throughout keeps students interested in the material and allow for a more efficient progression through the topics. Concise, practical, and integrated, Frosts streamlined approach offers students a clear path through the content. Applications throughout the narrative, the visual program, and problem-solving support in each chapter improve their retention of the concepts and skills as they master them. General, organic, and biological chemistry topics are integrated throughout each chapter to create a seamless framework that immediately relates chemistry to students future allied health careers and their everyday lives.
