Description

Olmsted/Burk Chemistry, Second Canadian Edition is an introductory general chemistry text designed specifically with Canadian instructors and students in mind. Canadian content in the form of SI units, IUPAC standards and research content more accurately reflects the discipline of Canadian chemistry, distinguishing this text from current text offerings which are primarily American. Canadian chemistry instructors will find this text sufficiently rigorous while still engaging and retaining student interest with accessible language, a concise and easy-to-use presentation of information, and a clear problem-solving program—without an excess of material that makes most texts appear daunting and redundant. This second edition includes more organic chemistry coverage, multi-concept problems, and increased student pedagogy. Instructors will also appreciate the flexible content of Olmsted/Burk, as the first four chapters can be adapted easily for custom text options.
