TEXTBOOKS
AND OTHER REQUIRED RESOURCES

Introductory
Chemistry by Nivaldo Tro (4th edition), ISBN: 0321687930
or 9780321687937 (front shown cover above) or Introductory

 Students
will not be allowed to use programmable graphing calculators on quizzes
and exams. Thus, students are required to have a basic scientific nonprogrammable
calculator that can carry out exponential functions (indicated with
an EE or EXP button) such as a TI30Xa. (See example above). These can be
purchased at the SCCC Bookstore, Target, Fred Meyer, and office supply stores
such as OfficeDepot, OfficeMax, and Staples.
 CHEM
121 does not use a published lab manual. Students must purchase a packet
of laboratory experiments from the Seattle Central Community College Copy
Center (BE 3105A).
 CHEM 121 students must also purchase a new bound, composition notebook (with at least 80 pages) to serve as
a lab notebook for the quarter. Each student will record all collected
experimental data directly into his/her lab notebook. These may be purchased
at the SCCC Bookstore or at office supply stores (e.g. OfficeDepot,
OfficeMax, Staples, etc. )
