Advanced Placement Chemistry

Advanced Placement Chemistry


This course is designed to be the equivalent of the general chemistry course usually taken during the first college year. AP Chemistry meets the objectives of a good general college chemistry course. Students in AP Chemistry should attain a depth of understanding of fundamentals and a reasonable competence in dealing with chemical problems. The course should contribute to the development of the students’ abilities to think clearly and to express their ideas, orally and in writing, with clarity and logic. Topics such as the structure of matter, kinetic theory of gases, chemical equilibria, chemical kinetics, and the basic concepts of thermodynamics will be presented in considerable depth. AP Chemistry will provide a laboratory experience equivalent to that of a typical college course. College credit via the AP exam is the primary goal of the course.
