The Chemistry II course digital enhancements collection provides open education resources (OER) for instructors covering chemical concepts in the second semester of a general chemistry course or other STEM-related courses that cover some aspect of second semester chemistry topics within their curriculum. The textbook used by the Chemistry II faculty team members of the UNC Digital Course Enhancement is “OpenStax: Chemistry Atoms First 2e”. The course materials provided are related to the following majors (and concentrations): biology, biochemistry, chemistry, computer science, exercise and sport science, mathematics, medical technology, nutrition, and physics. This course is also required for admittance into physician assistant programs and the following pre-professional programs: predentistry, preengineering, premedicine, prepharmacy, prephysical therapy, and preveterinary medicine. This course may also partially satisfy the general education natural science requirement.
General Chemistry II course collection materials include suggested reading sections in the Chemistry Atoms First 2e textbook, lecture videos, demonstrations and activities/assessments related to chemical concepts such as, but not limited to the following: gases, intermolecular forces, solutions, chemical kinetics, chemical equilibrium, acids and bases, thermodynamics , electrochemistry and radioactivity.
Chemistry 2 course collection video from the UNC System OER project. This one-minute video is meant for students. It focuses on what students may think they know about the topic, what students could learn from taking the course, and a brief introduction to open educational resources.
This open-access online general chemistry video repository, offered not-for-credit and free of charge from UC Berkeley, provides students an introduction to the world of chemistry as seen from a broad variety of perspectives.
