Welcome to AP Chemistry. This is a year-long course that studies the interactions of "Stuff!" Pre-requisites include successful completion of Chemistry with a B or better and Integrated Math 2. We will be building off concepts studied in Chemistry so students may wish to refer back to those pages of the website for refreshers. For students wanting to prepare for the first weeks of class, I would strongly suggest memorizing the Common Ion Chart. You will be tested on names and formulas the first week of school. AP Chemistry is a second-year chemistry class that is the equivalent of a first year College Chemistry course. It will be treated like a college course with an expectation of 2-3 hours of outside class time for every 1 hour in class. A good amount of time (about 5-8 hours per week of outside class time) will be completing homework, lab prep/write-ups, reading/questions, etc... In-class time will focus on Laboratory experiments, whether it is the quizzes, performing, and/or discussions, as well as concept discussion/problem solving. Students will be preparing to take the AP Chemistry Exam in May. Successful completion of this class and passing the AP Exam will help students be prepared for college level science work.
