This is an advanced placement course designed to prepare the student for the AP Chemistry exam.  The course covers the equivalent of one full year of college level general chemistry.  The course is a rigorous math-based course with a strong laboratory component.  It is intended for students who have demonstrated a willingness to commit considerable time to studying and completing assignments outside of class.

            The course will develop the student’s ability to incorporate mathematical skills in the solution of chemistry problems through the use of textbook problems and laboratory activities.  Significant emphasis will be placed on developing the student’s ability to solve problems through dimensional analysis and estimation.  Students will keep a thorough and accurate lab notebook.
