About the Book
In the newly updated 8th Edition, Chemistry: A Guided Inquiry continues to follow the evidence-based principles of inquiry learning, emphasizing the development of underlying chemistry concepts through analysis and interpretation of information. Part II includes activities that address most of the topics typically addressed in a second semester general chemistry course including thermochemistry, equilibrium, kinetics, acids and bases, oxidation-reduction processes, and thermodynamics.

Richard S. Moog received an A.B. in chemistry from Williams College and a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from Stanford University. He is a retired Professor of Chemistry at Franklin & Marshall College and currently serves as the Executive Director of The POGIL Project. He is a proud recipient of the 2016 George C. Pimentel Award in Chemical Education from the American Chemical Society. Rick has been using a guided inquiry approach to teaching and chemistry since 1994, and is the coauthor of POGIL materials for general chemistry and physical chemistry.
John J. Farrell is Emeritus Professor of Chemistry at Franklin & Marshall College. He earned his doctorate from the University of Pittsburgh in 1964 and began working at F&M in Lancaster, PA, the next year. In 2021, Farrell was honored by his undergraduate alma mater as a recipient of the Baldwin Wallace Alumni Merit Award, the highest honor conferred upon a graduate by the university.
Gail H. Webster received her B.S. in secondary chemistry education from Virginia Commonwealth University and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in analytical chemistry from North Carolina State University. She taught chemistry for twenty-five years at both the high school and college levels. Always an advocate of student-centered learning, she incorporated POGIL pedagogy in her classes in 2004 and then became active within the POGIL community. She is currently a AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow at the U.S. Department of Energy.
