Advanced Level and Senior High School Physical and Inorganic Chemistry is intended for use in secondary schools, especially where resources for quality chemistry teaching are lacking, and for students in health-related or other programmes that require an introduction to general chemistry. The book organises the fundamentals of chemistry in a way that facilitates self-directed learning. For the benefit of chemistry-challenged students, the various topics are clearly explained and sequentially arranged so that each one flows smoothly into the next, with some worked examples. Most importantly, the book is written in a manner that makes it possible to cover and understand all the key topics at this stage with relative ease in one year. It begins with an introduction to the atomic theory, with an extensive discussion of electron configurations, followed by basic concepts of how to write chemical formulae and reactions. These topics then lead seamlessly into a description of the basis of the periodic table and periodicity of the elements. A more complete understanding of these topics serves as a gateway to grasping the concepts of chemical bonding and structures of chemical compounds, the nature of solutions, and the processes of chemical changes. To enable students to focus on the most critical learning material contained in a particular section, each topic begins with a list of learning objectives. The overall goal is to produce a text that introduces the student to the relevance and excitement of chemistry.
