COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Equivalent to a first-year college course in chemistry, AP® Chemistry demonstrates how knowledge of chemicals and chemical reactions can help students better understand the world around them. Students cultivate their understanding of chemistry through hands on inquiry-based labs, as they explore topics such as: atomic structure, intermolecular forces and bonding, chemical reactions, kinetics, thermodynamics, and equilibrium. A total of 16 laboratories will be completed, allowing students to master steps to perform a successful investigation.

This course requires a study commitment, outside of instruction time, of approximately 7 hours per week.
