This course is organized to be the equivalent of a first year college chemistry course. This course has two major goals. 1) To prepare you to take and pass the AP Chemistry exam in May. 2) To develop a lab notebook of sufficient quality and sophistication to receive college chemistry lab credit.
Like all college courses, this course will require a significant commitment of time and effort both in the class and outside of the class. This is NOT a typical high school course. To be successful, we will need to integrate and apply a huge amount of information. We have to move at a rapid pace to cover all of the required AP topics. It is absolutely essential that you do not fall behind.
Chemistry concepts build on each other. The best way to succeed is to put forth consistent and regular effort. Trying to “cram” the information just before the test will result in failure. All of the assignments are designed to help you understand and apply the critical concepts. I am available almost every day for extra help.
