Solve: Problems in Environmental Science (Paperback)
In response to repeated requests for more problems in environmental science, Katie Purvis-Roberts (Claremont McKenna, Pitzer and Scripps Colleges) and Tom Spiro (University of Washington), authors of Chemistry of the Environment, with a team of experienced environmental science teachers, have developed SOLVE: Problems in Environmental Science. This sleek and affordable stand-alone "problems" book serves up a broad array of quantitative problems addressing real-world issues in an approachable fashion. Requiring only algebra and a basic understanding of general chemistry, SOLVE is designed for use in traditional Environmental Science courses, as well as in student-centered guided problem-solving courses. Worked problems are followed by practice problems, with brief answers that allow students to check their work. With this text, your students will use their reasoning ability to tackle and solve problems ranging from global warming to GMOs. An Instructor's Manual with detailed solutions is also available to adopting professors.
