About The Author

Martin Silberberg

Martin Silberberg

Dr. Martin S. Silberberg received his B.S. in chemistry from the City University of New York in 1966 and his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Oklahoma, in 1971. Dr. Martin then accepted a research position at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where he studied the chemical nature of neurotransmission and Parkinson's disease. In 1977, he joined the faculty of Simon's Rock College of Bard (Massachusetts), a liberal arts college known for its excellence in teaching small classes of highly motivated college students. As Head of the Natural Sciences Major and Director of Premedical Studies, Martin taught courses in organic chemistry, biochemistry, general chemistry, and nonmajors chemistry. The close student contact afforded him insights into how college students learn chemistry, where they have difficulties, and what strategies can help them succeed. In 1983, Dr. Martin Silberberg decided to apply these insights in a broader context and established a textbook writing and editing company. Before writing his own book, he worked on biochemistry, chemistry, and physics texts for several major college publishers. He resides with his wife and child in Massachusetts. For relaxation, Martin sings, cooks, and walks in the woods.

Chemistry: The Molecular Nature of Matter and Change with Advanced Topics 8th edition by Martin Silberberg and Patricia Amateis has been recognized in the general chemistry market as an unparalleled classic. The revision for the 8th edition focused on continued optimization of the textbook. To aid in this process, the authors were able to use data from literally thousands of college student responses to questions in LearnSmart, the adaptive learning system that assesses student knowledge of course content. The data, such as average time spent answering each question and the percentage of college students who correctly answered the question on the1st attempt, revealed the learning objectives that most students found particularly difficult, which we addressed by revising surrounding text or adding additional learning resources such as videos and slideshows. The etextbook still contains unprecedented macroscopic-to-microscopic molecular illustrations, consistent step-by-step worked exercises in every chapter, and an extensive range of end-of-chapter problems, which provide engaging applications covering a wide variety of interests, including engineering, materials, medicine, and environmental studies. Changes have been made to the textbook and applications throughout to make them more succinct, to the artwork to make it more modern and teachable, and to the design to make it more simplistic and open.
