This course is designed for the student who is interested in further study of chemistry. The advanced Placement course is designed to be the equivalent of a one-year college-level chemistry course. The goal of this course is to prepare the students to score a 4 or 5 on the AP Chemistry exam in May and receive college credit for their efforts.
This is accomplished by having a rigorous study of the chemical topics listed below. We also spend a considerable amount of time in the lab developing laboratory skills, which are becoming more important for success on the AP exam.
