Stephen Stoker of Weber State University in Ogden, UT, has taught the gamut of introductory chemistry courses, specializing in GOB, for the past 30 years. Weber State has a very large Health Professions school, and GOB is geared at students with little or no experience in chemistry (notably Allied Health and Nursing majors).

  • Section Quizzes--new section quizzes at the end of each of section test student understanding of the section. The quizzes test student understanding at the micro-level and reinforce key concepts. There are 356 section quizzes; total of 1, 252 questions.
  • Learning Focus--new feature called "Learning Focus". Learning focuses are placed at the beginning of each section and provide students with insight into what each section is going to focus on and the associated learning outcomes for those sections.
  • The most powerful online learning solution for chemistry is better than ever. OWLv2 now has more flexible student and instructor functionality, new personalized study tools, enhanced integration with learning management systems, and improved analytics. For this course, OWLv2 also includes Quick Prep, an online short course to review key chemistry concepts and essential skills, new iPad-compatible visualizations, tutorials, and simulations, and new Adaptive Study Plans. In addition, Tutors, Visualizations and Simulations have been converted from Flash to HTML, allowing for easier navigation and streamlined grading.
  • Chemical Connection Boxes show chemistry as it relates to everyday life, highlighting its relevance to students' future careers in the health and environmental fields.
  • Chemistry at-a-Glance features provide brief visual summaries of core chapter concepts to help students visualize difficult material.
  • A wide range of examples throughout the book help students improve their problem-solving skills.
  • The book is fully integrated with the OWL online learning system, which saves instructors time and helps students master concepts and improve their grades.
  • Early chapters focus on fundamental chemical principles; later chapters build on the foundation of these principles.
  • OWLv2 is the most trusted online learning solution for chemistry. Featuring chemist-developed content, OWLv2 is the only system designed to elevate thinking through Mastery Learning, allowing students to work at their own pace until they understand each concept and skill. Each time a student tries a problem, OWLv2 changes the, chemistry, values, and sometimes even the wording of the question to ensure students are learning the concepts and not cheating the system. With detailed, instant feedback and interactive learning resources, students get the help they need when they need it. Now with improved student and instructor tools and greater functionality, OWLv2 is more robust than ever. Discover the power of OWLv2 and take learning to a higher level.
