Elective: for Grades 10-12
The AP Chemistry course is aligned with the College Board AP standards. This course is designed to be the equivalent of a college introductory chemistry course, usually taken by chemistry majors during their first year. It aims to provide students with the conceptual framework, factual knowledge, and analytical skills necessary to deal with the rapidly changing science of chemistry. Topics such as the structure of matter, kinetic theory of gases, chemical equilibria, chemical kinetics and the basic concepts of thermodynamics are being presented in considerable depth. The topics of this course are reinforced with a strong emphasis on laboratory experiences.
