Book Description: Enhanced Introductory College Chemistry is a collaboratively created textbook with Georgian College, Loyalist College and Conestoga College supported by a VLS grant from eCampus Ontario. It is designed to address most chemistry topics covered in an introductory chemistry course in most program areas. Topics include measurement, matter, atomic theory, nomenclature, moles, chemical equations, stoichiometry, chemical bonding, gases, liquids, solutions, acids and bases, equilibrium and oxidation-reduction. Each chapter contains examples, relevant images, embedded videos, exercises and interactive exercises with answers, links to external interactive tools, glossary, and review practice questions with selected answers. A noted effort was made to include Indigenous examples to support chemistry learning as well as highlighting Scientists in Action. Extensive resources to support Indigenization of chemistry and Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in chemistry are provided in the front matter. Accessibility of learning material was addressed through descriptive alt-text and screen reader supported text wherever possible.
Additional resources of image banks for faculty are also available. Authors of this book will use portions of it for introductory chemistry courses in Biotechnology, Environmental Science, College and Career Preparation and Pre-Health Science programs.
