Olmsted/Burk is an introductory general chemistry text designed specifically with Canadian professors and students in mind. A reorganized Table of Contents and inclusion of SI units, IUPAC standards, and Canadian content designed to engage and motivate readers distinguish this text from many of the current text offerings. It more accurately reflects the curriculum of most Canadian institutions. Instructors will find the text sufficiently rigorous while it engages and retains student interest through its accessible language and clear problem solving program without an excess of material that makes most text appear daunting and redundant.
