Required and Optional Texts

The following texts and materials are required for the 2017-2018 course:

  • Chemistry and Chemical Reactivity 9/e (John C. Kotz, Paul Treichel, John Townsend, David Treichel), which is an introductory college level chemistry text for science majors used in a number of high school AP programs. Be sure that you purchase the ninth edition. Earlier editions will not be acceptable; besides having different material in some of the chapters, most of the end-of-chapter exercises change for each edition.

    While this text is available from Cengage with access to online aids, I do not require access to the OWL supplemental materials required by the publisher. You may therefore purchase paper or electronic copies from any source providing you obtain the ninth edition.

  • Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments (Robert Bruce Thompson - ISBN: 0596514921)

Please note that lab work is not optional!. In addition to textbooks, students will need to purchase sufficient equipment and chemicals to perform a minimum number of labs. See the Lab Work page for details on required chemicals and equipment.

You may order all texts through Scholars Online Bookstore.
