This online course will take an applied materials science approach to teaching chemistry at the introductory level. Chemistry is a common first year requirement in most engineering programs. Increasingly an applied approach is being used to teach this subject: blending traditional chemistry topics with materials science. In this project we propose to create a new online course at a foundational level that will fulfill the requirements for introductory chemistry with a materials approach. In particular, it will meet the requirements at the University of Toronto for all first year students, and will be designed for inclusion in the Engineering credit transfer matrix as an acceptable substitute for introductory chemistry for engineering students across Ontario.
