Prerequisites: B- average in Honors Chemistry I and Honors Algebra II or A- average in Chemistry I and Algebra II; enrollment in Pre-Calculus/Trigonometry or have taken it previously.
This is a college-level, accelerated chemistry course. Students in this course must be self-driven and be able to commit a fair amount of time outside of class in self-study. The emphasis in this course is on problem-solving as students are continually challenged. Topics covered include kinetics, equilibrium, thermochemistry, electrochemistry, buffers, intramolecular and intermolecular bonding, stoichiometry, and solution chemistry. The laboratory is utilized to reinforce concepts. All students will take the AP Exam in May. This course is ideal for students who wish to enter the STEM or medical fields as a career.
