Body Physics was designed to meet the objectives of a one-term high school or freshman level course in physical science, typically designed to provide non-science majors and undeclared students with exposure to the most basic principles in physics while fulfilling a science-with-lab core requirement. The content level is aimed at students taking their first college science course, whether or not they are planning to major in science. However, with minor supplementation by other resources, such as OpenStax College Physics, this textbook could easily be used as the primary resource in 200-level introductory courses. Chapters that may be more appropriate for physics courses than for general science courses are noted with an asterisk symbol (*). Of course, this textbook could be used to supplement other primary resources in any physics course covering mechanics and thermodynamics.

In essay format, this textbook considers examples of various sub-categories of Geography in combination with five regions of the Eastern World.
Created for GEOGR 1105 - Eastern World Geography at the College of DuPage. This resource will be updated as needed. For the most recent version, visit: https://cod.pressbooks.pub/easternworlddailyreadingsgeography/
The links shown on the left will take you to the available content areas in the Introductory Chemistry site.
The lecture slides are images taken from the PowerPoint slides and they are arranged in a "stack" that allows easy viewing in order to review the content. These images are not designed for printing!
The exam review slides are from the PowerPoint slides that we typically go through prior to each of the exams. Many of the questions on these slides resemble actual archived exam questions.
The microtutorials are short movies that focus on a single topic (Elements & Isotopes, Significant Figures, etc.). These are useful for review or as content in the "Flipped Classroom".
The textbook link will take you to an online version of the text, Introductory Chemistry Online. These are images from the text and again, they are designed for online viewing and review, but not for printing.
The answers to the problems at the end of the chapters in the text are collected in the chapter answer link. These are "answers only"… please see the text for the complete questions.
The Tutorial link takes you to a set of algorithmic tutorials and exercises that deal with many of the central concepts in the course. In general, you will receive a unique problem every time you work one of these. Once you have attempted answering the problem, you can check your work with the Show Answer button. You should spend a good deal of your online time working these problems; they are a good source of questions for chemistry quizzes and for hour exams.
Introductory Chemistry Online is an open-source introductory chemistry textbook/workbook that is designed cover a college-level one-semester course. Many contemporary textbooks in chemistry seem have adopted the notion that "more is better"; the books are long, expensive, and the pages are often cluttered with interesting tidbits and restatements of what it is that you have “just learned”. The Chemistry Online text, on the other extreme, is designed to be simple, uncluttered and very much to the point.
A Google Drive folder containing a PDF with 18 labs for General Chemistry. Created for CHEM 1211 at the College of DuPage.This resource will be updated as needed. For the Google Folder and most recent version, visit: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1svUa9j-DEJQVOBSmesx5AAV74CPSuCYc?usp=sharing
A google drive of resources created by Mary Newberg for CHEMI 0485 - Basic Laboratory and Computation Chemistry at College of DuPage. These labs are designed for students working under the supervision of an instructor in a college chemistry laboratory.
Dissolved ions are present in all freshwater systems, but humans can change the chemical composition of freshwater in several ways. In this activity, students will examine the concentration of major ions in freshwater systems over time and reason about potential drivers of these changes.
