Homework and Assignments
Homework modules have been developed on MyOpenMath and are being piloted in Fall II. MyOpenMath is a free, open source, online course management system for mathematics and other quantitative fields. Functions include randomizing questions, online tests, discussion forum, and automatic grading.
Full rollout is scheduled for Spring 2020. Enrolled students will receive information from the instructor to access their course.
Chemistry 2e is an optional textbook in Spring I 2020. For a few sections, it will the be required textbook, as a pilot. Chemistry 2e is free to read online and to download (PDF, Kindle). (Book URL: https://openstax.org/details/books/chemistry-2e)
