AP Chemistry Program
AP Chemistry is designed to be the equivalent of a first year college general chemistry course and follows the College Board’s AP Chemistry Topic Outline. As such, the course is suitable only for high school students who exhibit high levels of commitment, motivation and academic maturity. This course presents a rigorous treatment of the following concepts: the nature of matter, gas laws, thermodynamics, stoichiometry, bonding, chemical kinetics, chemical equilibrium, thermodynamics and more. This course covers the mathematical and theoretical aspects of inorganic and organic chemistry at the college freshman level.
This course requires the successful completion of Biology, Regular Chemistry and Algebra II. Any exceptions must receive prior approval from the teacher. Students are expected to be motivated and spend extra time studying outside of class. The problem-solving strategies obtained during this course will prepare college-bound students for careers in the sciences, medicine, engineering, and other technical areas.
