Chem 10 text is Chemistry for Changing Times, 14th ed. by John Hill, et al. 9780321972026.  Available at the Shasta College Bookstore or any on-line book retailer.  I will also accept the 13th ed. 9780321750877 or 12th ed. ISBN 9780136054498.  Search for these online using the ISBN number and you will find them much cheaper than the Shasta College Bookstore.  The 12 edition will be very cheap.  Be careful some 12 editions only have 18 chapters in the text with an online link to the last 4 chapters.  THAT LINK DOES NOT WORK!!!!  The text has 22 chapters and about 640 pages depending on the edition.  Here are two links that will connect you to a list of these texts for cheap.  The12th edition and the 13th

I also have provided lots of notes and hyperlinks for the class and I am always adding more.   These  should be used in addition to the text.
