Matter and Motion is an integrated program that presents students with the fundamental concepts of general chemistry, university physics and calculus. While these are distinct disciplines, there is a large degree of overlap and, wherever possible, these topics will be presented using an integrated approach. This will allow students to see the relevant principles from a broader perspective than if they were presented in isolation. There will not be a regular schedule of lecture times for the three disciplines. Instead, the material will be presented in as flexible a manner as possible to maximize the extent of integration. As a result, to fully benefit from the presentation of these disciplines, students should take the program in its entirety; taking selected modules, while possible, places substantial responsibility on the student to understand which topics "belong" to their modules.
