- From the Instructor:
Everyday Chemistry is a course that is completely on-line. The lab is inclusive, and experiments are executed via a kit that you purchase and have delivered to your home. This is a time intensive course, but a great option for those with a full schedule, or for those who live far from campus. Please read through the course components and requirements below, and contact me with any questions.
What you need to purchase for lecture:
Chemistry in Context (CIC): Applying Chemistry to Society, Middlecamp, C.H., Keller, S.W., 7th ed., McGraw-Hill, ISBN: 978-1-2591654-4-3. This ISBN is for the text that is bundled with the on-line homework Connect. It can be purchased from the PCC Bookstore, but in this format it is not available through Amazon. If you do not live near a PCC campus, you can purchase Chemistry in Context, 7th ed. through Amazon (978-0-07-337566-3) but you will have to purchase Connect separately from the Connect Website. Another option is to rent the CIC 7th ed. textbook which you can do through amazon for $30. The text has changed since the 6th edition. Chapter 0 is not present in the 6th edition; therefore the 7th edition of the book is required!
The Connect homework purchased independently costs ~$50. You can register for Connect on-line homework purchase with the text OR purchase the code on-line using the following:

1. Click on Order. You will be taken to a login screen.
2. The login/password for this course is C000289/labpaq
3. You will then be taken to the page where you can easily add the kit for our class to your cart. It is SKU # LP-0549CK-02 (Code 100DL, CK-1) The price for the at-home-science lab kit will be approximately $200 plus shipping.
It is much more expensive to take the on-line course!!! On campus classes do not have this kit fee. You do have the luxury of working independently (if this style of learning works for you) but it comes at a price! Do not order the kit until you are sure you are ready to stay in the class because the restocking fee is high.
Note: The lab kit cannot be purchased through the PCC bookstore. The 1st lab requiring the kit will not be due until Week 3. I do not recommend taking the course if your disbursement does not occur after the 1st week of class. Please consult your financial aid adviser for information regarding your disbursement timing. NOTE: You must receive at least 70% in the lab in order to pass the entire course.
