    • Chemistry: The Science in Context by Gilbert, Kirss, Foster, and Davies (4th edition), ISBN: 978-0393919370 or 0393919374 (front shown cover above)

    • CHEM 162 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 162 students must also purchase TWO new bound, composition notebook for homework and for lab.
      • These may be purchased at the SCCC Bookstore or at office supply stores.

      • Homework Notebook: Each student will complete all of the homework assigned directly into his/her homework notebook. Students must show the necessary work for each problem in his/her homework notebook to receive full credit.

    • Students will not be allowed to use programmable graphing calculators during quizzes and exams. Students are required to have a basic scientific non-programmable calculator that can carry out exponential functions (indicated with an EE or EXP button) such as a TI-30Xa. (See example above). These may be purchased at the SCCC Bookstore, Target, Fred Meyer, and office supply stores.


      • Use to leave feedback about your professors, and let other students know which are good teachers and which to avoid.
