Online general chemistry textbook
I am currently writing an interactive online general chemistry book for use in the one year general chemistry sequence for science majors (chemistry 1210 and 1220) at USU. This text replaces a conventional publisher text such as "Brown Lemay Bursten" or "Zumdahl". The innovation of this text is that it is written using html5 and displays perfectly on any tablet or PC web browser. The text incorporates html5-based animations, interactions, and 3-dimensional images, and does not require any plugins or additional software.
A sample chapter from the textbook is available in the link below. Some additional examples of interactive content are also provided in the links.
Students at USU may access the complete textbook using the link for "gen chem 1" under the teaching dropdown menu above. I provide the log in and password information to current and former students.
