  • Chemistry: The Science in Context by Gilbert, Kirss, Foster, and Davies (3rd edition), ISBN: 0393934314 or 978-0393934311 (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.
    • Lab Notebook: Each student will record all collected experimental data directly into his/her lab notebook. If your CHEM 161 lab notebook still has 50 or more unused pages, you may use the same lab notebook as long as it has no missing pages.
    • 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.
