Prof Joy Walker
Learning About Volcanos at Crater Lake
Currently I'm an adjunct professor emeritus for the City Colleges of Chicago. I was a tenured professor for 30+ years at Truman College. I love to learn and share my enthusiasm for learning. I have many interests. I enjoy learning about science, gardening, cooking and baking, linguistics and languages, drawing and painting, and literature. I believe we learn best when we are curious, excited, interested and engaged in our own learning processes.
On zoom by appointment. Request an appointment by email.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement
I support this statement adopted by the Physical Science and Engineering department at Truman College
We are committed to equity, inclusion, diversity and success of students and staff. We retain a fundamental belief that all people belong and deserve fairness, justice, and inclusivity. Our strength comes from our diversity. We celebrate the visible and invisible qualities that make each person unique including, but not limited to, culture, race, gender, age, sexuality, ability, religion, national origin, gender identity and other identities. In the classroom we focus on treating everyone with dignity, respect, kindness, compassion, and civility. We value a community where all individuals from all levels can participate, contribute, and have a voice.
We will use Chemistry: Atoms First 2e by Flowers, Neth Robinson, Theopold and Langley. This book is available free as part of the openstax access project. Visit https://openstax.org/details/books/chemistry-atoms-first-2e?Book%20details to learn more about openstax.org
If the file size of the book is too large try downloading it in these four parts:
You will need to have a copy of the periodic table that you can easily use. For this reason I recommend printing the periodic table or if you have a chemistry textbook then that works too. Periodic Table
For chapters 9 & 12 you will need to have the thermodynamic tables that are in the appendix of all chemistry text books. Thermodynamic Table
You should always have a calculator available. I use a TI-30X IIB in class in case you want to have the same one I use.
