Scholars Online Textbooks for Courses for the Current School Year


The Textbook Section for Science Textbooks

There are several hundred books listed in the textbook section. Select a sequence to review a list of the courses and textbooks for that sequence. You may browse through the entire section if you want to see all our text choices by clicking on "Textbooks", but please be aware that this may take significant time to load and you must be patient.

Text titles in the list display link directly to Amazon's page for the work, or to an alternate source if the item is not available from Amazon. On full screen devices, you can also browse sections or the entire book store in "cover" mode, which will display the textbook cover and range of prices for copies available through Amazon.

During the early part of the calendar year, the bookstore may list textbooks for courses from both the current academic year, and the upcoming summer and fall academic years. Not all textbooks will be listed until teachers approve course descriptions and select their books. Be sure that you order books for the correct enrollment year.

John C. Kotz, Paul M. GTreichel, John Townsend, David Treichel

The hardcover, softcover, and eBook versions of the ninth edition include all materials required for the course. This edition has been out for several years and should be widely available used. Because the HYDRID edition does not include homework problems and does require additional fees for OWL access, we do not recommend it for this course. No OWL access will be required for the Core Chemistry course or the AP Option.

AP Chemistry Option • [2019] Christe McMenomy
  Required Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments [Edition required: 1]
Robert Bruce Thompson

We will use this text as the basis of our chemistry lab efforts.

  Optional Home Chemistry Laboratory Kit CK01A [Any edition]
Robert B. and Barbara F. Thompson

The CK01A version of the chemistry kit contains most (but not all) equipment required to complete the AP level chemistry experiments for this course. While it is possible to secure individual items for each lab, and may be less expensive for students completing only the Honors option, you may find purchase the kit more convenient.
