Corwin's 8th Edition Textbook via bookstore is  e-text (without Mastering Code)
or a student may purchase/rent a used copy (without Mastering Code) from any other source,

Pearson is trying something different with the 8/E of Corwin (and some other books). The feedback that Pierson has been getting from students and schools is that students like digital only, or to rent a book. So, Pierson is selling digital only in the bookstore and if they want a hard copy, they can rent from another source. However, once you have purchased the e-book, you have the option for  $35 to purchase a hard copy loose leaf version of the text. No new hard back versions of the books difficult to purchase
A student may purchase a used 8th hard copy, a used 7th, or a used 6th edition of the book. The student may also rent the e-book.

The Scientific Method Controlled Experiment Paper:

Movie Film: Andromeda Strain – 1971

The best-selling novel by Michael Crichton was faithfully adapted for this taut 1971 thriller (by 1971 standards-boring today), about a team of scientists racing against time to destroy a deadly alien virus that threatens to wipe out life on Earth. As usual with any Crichton-based movie, the emphasis is on an exciting clash between nature and science, beginning when virologists discover the outer-space virus…….It's all very fascinating if you're interested in scientific method and technological advances (that did not exist in 1970—but is quite common or obsolete today), although the film is obviously very dated in many of its details………

Background from Chapter 1(Corwin text):

1. On pages 4-5 of the Corwin textbook there are listed three steps in the scientific method.

Scientific Method Steps vis Corwin:

  1. An Initial Step of the Scientific Method is to recognize or observe a phenomenon or a problem.)
  2. Then the First Step of the Scientific Method is to perform a planned experiment, make observations, and record data.
  3. The Second Step in the Scientific Method is to analyze the data and propose a tentative hypothesis to explain the experimental observations.
  4. The Third Step in the Scientific Method is to conduct additional experiments to test the hypothesis. If the evidence supports the initial proposal, the hypothesis may become a scientific theory.

 You may access the article: "A Scientific Mystery-Solving Strategy" on the Internet ( )which includes four steps in solving a scientific mystery: Question, Hypothesis, Testing, and Evaluation. You may access it if you do need more information than the textbook.

2. Depending on the text the Scientific Method shows more than three steps.  One text lists seven steps which begins with:
  A. Observation of an odd, unusual, or interesting event….

      Scientists use these steps to investigate problems and find solutions.

The Project: The Hollywood Film Assignment:

  Your assignment is to watch the film partially during class time, then at home, or at an additional on campus time. Note the problem which threatened life on earth, and set off a "wildfire" protocol. Note how did the scientists approach the "Wildfire" problem and note all the steps and procedures used in the experimental controls that help eliminate the various variables from their investigation, then explain how they went about trying to solve the problem to come up with a solution. Finally you need to explain the solution, and the chemistry behind it, which is discussed in Chapter 14 of the Corwin text.

Three-Four (October 7-October 140 Critical Thinking Project via Modeling Linear Functions Using Temperature LAB

Joint Critical Thinking Project via Modeling Linear Functions Using Temperature Conversion Scales

Abstract:  At FSCJ exercises are being developed to demonstrate critical thinking ability of the students. This project is a joint effort to compare students in both College Algebra and Chemistry classes. The functional relationship between the Fahrenheit and Celsius Temperature scales are derived using the corresponding boiling and freezing points of water. In this project students each create a unique Temperature scale using the student’s body weight and the student’s age as the boiling and freezing points of water respectively. This “student” scale is then compared to the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales. The resulting functions are graphed and compared. We will illustrate this on the webpage:

Complete Description: At FSCJ exercises are being developed to demonstrate critical thinking ability of the students in all of the general education classes. Cognitive scientists define “critical thinking” as mental activity associated with these types of thinking: a. applying reasoning; b. making decisions; c. problem solving. This critical thinking project is a joint effort to compare students in both College Algebra and Chemistry classes.

During the first weeks of a beginning or first semester of college chemistry classes temperature scales are introduced as part of measurement (Module 2ii-Chapter 2 Corwin text). America still lives with the out dated Fahrenheit scale while most of the world uses the Celsius scale developed as the centigrade scale in the metric system of measurement. Most textbooks demonstrate a graphic comparing three thermometers: Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvin. Then conversion formulas are shown to calculate the corresponding temperature on one thermometer from a temperature on another thermometer.

During the first weeks in a College Algebra Class linear equations are introduced. Graphing linear data, the students sees the
y=mx+b relationship. At an AMA summer math workshop at Duke University, the participants were developing discovering learning projects to introduce college algebra topics. The first project had a bank sign flashing current temperatures, Fahrenheit and Celsius. Five data points were given for the temperatures at five different times of day. Graphing the data the student discovers that converting one temperature to another is a linear function: F = 1.8C + 32 or C=0.556(F-32). It was pointed out by the presenters that every science student from the fifth or sixth grades and above has seen the conversion formulas in one form or another.

One of the best web sites discussing temperature conversions is:  

In addition to the standard textbook formulas, this site has several alternative formulas, one using the +40/-40 process which is by far the best formula for non-mathematical students to use because the conversion from F to C and C to F uses the same order of operation: Add, multiple, then subtract.

The functional relationship between the Fahrenheit and Celsius Temperature scales are derived using the corresponding boiling and freezing points of water. However, to make the college algebra project more interesting, the presenters developed a web site so that the each student creates a unique Temperature scale using the student’s body weight and the student’s age as the boiling and freezing points of water respectively. This “student” scale is then compared to the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales. The resulting functions are graphed and compared. Each student’s linear equation is a unique formula to convert Student to Fahrenheit and Student to Celsius.

If you Google “temperature conversions” you find about 68 millions web pages. However, the unique webpage developed by the presenters which generates the data points is:

The actual project handout follows on the next several pages:

(CHM 1025C: Critical Thinking Exercise-MEASURING TEMPERATURES

By definition:
Learning -  the acquisition of knowledge or skill.

Teaching – the action  of a person who is showing or helping a person to learn.

Cognitive scientist define “critical thinking” as mental activity associated with these types of thinking:
a. applying reasoning
b. making decisions
c. problem solving

In the CHM 1025C Corwin textbook used at Florida State College @ Jacksonville , critical thinking is introduced within the context of chemical principles. In CHM 1025C and the Corwin text critical thinking  is undertaken specifically in the chapter vignette and end-of-chapter self-tests, and generally in unit analysis problem solving.

At FSCJ we have been addressing “Institutional Effectiveness”(I.E)  across the curriculum. The faculty is developing district wide exercises to assess learning outcomes. For chemistry (CHM 1025C) the science council/cluster feels we need to pursue under our course goals and objectives the following outcomes:

FSCJ CHM 1025C/CHM 2045C Official Learning Outcomes:

  1. Explain and apply major concepts in general chemistry


  2. Demonstrate knowledge of scientific method


  3. Interpret scientific models such as formulas, graphs, tables and schematics, draw inferences from them and recognize their limitations.


  4. Demonstrate problem solving methods in situations that are encountered outside of the classroom


 The following exercise addresses all four of the above, especially #3:




Read section 2.9: Temperature

The above images demonstrate equivalent temperatures on the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales with ice water and boiling water. The third thermometer compares to Kelvin Temperatures to Fahrenheit and Celsius temperatures.

Go to the temperature conversion web site:

  1. Setup the Student’s theoretical temperature scale with the following parameters:
  2.  The Freezing Point of water is Your Age or Your Desired Age.  (Prof Taylor 50oT)(Ms Sweet 30oS)
  3.   The Boiling Point of water is your body weight or desired body weight (Prof Taylor 250oT)(Sweet 120oS)
  4.  Fill in the table below/next page with your parameters to make oX (Student): (Professor Taylor’s normal body temperature is the normal 98.6 oF, Professor Bessman 96.8 oF, and Professor Sweet 97.3 oF.
  5.  If your normal body temperature is not 98.6 then fill in your Fahrenheit temperature and calculate the blanks across the line of the table.)) at least 5 data points from +250oF to -150oF





Table of Equivalent Temperatures:

Temp. oC

Temp. K

Temp. oT

Temp. oS

Temp. oX




































































































































































  1. Using a rectangular piece of graph paper, set up a graph plotting Fahrenheit versus Celsius so that vertical axis is Fahrenheit ranging from 250 down to -150 and the horizontal axis is -100 on the left and 125 on the right.
        a. Describe the line or curve generated by this data:

                 b. If the plot is a line, then what is the slope of the line and the Y intercept and the X intercept.

                 c.  Write the equation for the line.(Do you remember the equation of a straight line from

                d. If the plot is a curve, can you write the equation of the curve?

  1.  Now plot Celsius versus Kelvin on a rectangular coordinate graph. If Kelvin is the y axis and Celsius is the x axis,
  1. what is the y axis intercept? What is the slope of the line?


  1. Is there an easier way to find the slope of the line by looking at the data?


  1. At what temperature Celsius would kelvin equal zero?


In the Corwin  textbook on page 50-53 we refer to temperature on the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales as degree F (oF) and degree C (oC), but in kelvin temperature, temperatures are referred as kelvin units? . Why?

8. Now plot Celsius versus Student and Fahrenheit versus Student using separate graphs. On the oC vs oF graph, examining the data do you notice that: -40 oF = -40 oC. On your two Student graph plots is there a temperature where    oS = oC    or   oS = oF?






9. Algebraically is there away to determine if there is a temperature on the Taylor Scale, the Sweet Scale, or the Student Scale when that temperature equals a temperature on either the Celsius or Fahrenheit scale?


7/10. Fahrenheit, Celsius, Taylor, and Sweet temperatures are listed in degrees, while Kevin and also Rankin temperatures are given in straight units not degrees. Why does Rankin not have the degree sign o?
