    Course Objective

    AP Chemistry is a rigorous second-year chemistry course that is equivalent to one year of general college chemistry. AP Chemistry expands on topics from pre-AP Chemistry such as stoichiometry, reactions, solutions, and acids and bases; it also covers new topics such as equilibrium, thermodynamics, kinetics, and electrochemistry.

    The course centers around four big ideas and six science practices:

    1. Scale, Proportion, and Quantity 1. Models and Representations
    2. Structure and Properties 2. Question and Method
    3. Transformations 3. Representing Data and Phenomena
    4. Energy 4. Model Analysis
      5. Mathmatical Routines
      6. Argumentation
