WileyPLUS with Orion is available with the new edition of Blackman, Chemistry.

With WileyPLUS for Blackman, you can:

  • Assign algorithmic questions from the end-of-chapter sections to equitably assess your students
  • Review students’ performance by study objective to identify trends


Build Their Foundational Knowledge

A full version of the text is available online, providing students with an opportunity to study anytime, anywhere.

Pre-created practice assignments allow students to test and practice what they have learned and receive immediate feedback so they always know where they stand.

Concept Basics, which include animated worked examples and practice questions, allow your students to be more engaged with the material and come to class better prepared.

Accelerate Accountability

All reading and assignment content is tagged to study objectives, so both instructors and students can identify areas of weakness and the most relevant resources to remediate.

Selected end-of-chapter questions are available in algorithmic format to combat cheating and provide an opportunity for concept mastery.

Orion's adaptive learning engine allows students to build their proficiency in the course content by accessing practice questions aimed at their level of knowledge.

Advance Critical Thinking

All question content (i.e. end-of-chapter, practice and testbank questions) are direct from the text and accompanying resources, ensuring there is synergy between your classroom and online experience.
