WileyPLUS is a research-based online environment for effective teaching and learning. WileyPLUS is packed with interactive study tools and resources—including the complete online textbook—to give your students more value for their money. With WileyPLUS, students will be provided with unique study strategies, tools, and support based on learning styles for success in organic chemistry. WileyPLUS hallmarks, such as Reaction Explorer, remain alongside brand-new course updates, such as a fully integrated ebook with embedded multi-media content. Also, included in this course is ORION adaptive practice that helps students build their proficiency on topics and use their study time most effectively.


New to WileyPLUS course:

  • WileyPLUS is now equipped with an adaptive learning module called ORION. Based on cognitive science, WileyPLUS with ORION provides students with a personal, adaptive learning experience so they can build their proficiency on topics and use their study time most effectively.
  • WileyPLUS with ORION helps students learn by learning about them.
  • NEW Solved Problem Videos created by David Klein, walking students through how to solve sample chapter problems
  • NEW Guided Online (GO) Tutorial problems to accompany select chapter problems
  • NEW Do You Remember? Practice quiz to accompany chapter opener feature

In addition:

Relevant, student study tools and learning resources fully integrated with the digital learning resources include:

  • End-of-chapter questions.
  • Testbank
  • Prebuilt concept mastery assignments, pulling from a database of 25,000 questions, half of which are drawing questions.
  • Reaction Explorer: Mechanism and synthesis problems allowing students to practice drawing molecular structures (with curved arrows) and gain meaningful feedback on their answers.

Course Materials to help you personalize lessons and optimize your time, including:

  • Customizable pre-built course plan
  • Testbank
  • Lecture Notes PowerPoint Slides
  • Image Gallery
