Chemistry I – OLI

This highly interactive course covers the complete first semester of General Chemistry. It includes extensive and engaging practice for students including: problems with detailed feedback, adaptive exercises, simulations, interactive examples, and virtual lab activities.

This course is intended for Majors and is adapted from OpenStax Chemistry with many additions and modifications including: activities with PHeT simulations; problem sets that revolve around real-world scenarios; interactive examples; simulations, instructor-led videos demonstrating problem solving methods; animations; and more.  The course is engaging, designed in a logical flow that transitions smoothly between small amounts of expository text, worked examples, activities, interactives, simulations, and other media.

These materials are available as an OLI course.

  • Open Learning Initiative (OLI) courses are designed by learning scientists at Carnegie Mellon University. They use data and research insights to develop, test, and improve OER course materials that effectively support learning.

This course is available at no cost to SUNY students.
