The AP Chemistry Preparation Course is designed to help high school students prepare for the Advanced Placement (AP) Chemistry exam. The course covers all of the topics outlined in the AP Chemistry curriculum, including atomic structure, chemical bonding, states of matter, solutions, acids and bases, chemical reactions, and thermochemistry.
Throughout the course, students will engage in a variety of learning activities such as lectures, discussions, lab experiments, and problem-solving exercises. These activities will help students build a strong understanding of the fundamental concepts in chemistry, as well as develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
In addition to the course content, students will also receive comprehensive test preparation resources, including practice exams and review materials. These resources will help students feel confident and prepared for the AP Chemistry exam.
After completing the course, students are expected to reach the following goals:
- Understand the core scientific principles and concepts of chemistry including structure and state of matter, intermolecular forces, and reactions.
- Familiarity with the format and content of the AP Chemistry exam
- Strategies and techniques for effectively answering multiple-choice questions
- Practice with sample exam questions and materials
- Improved critical thinking and problem-solving skills
