AP Chemistry

Summer Assignment.
Congratulations on your decision to take Advanced Placement Chemistry! This class has the potential to be one of the most
fun & rewarding classes that you will take in high school. However, please be advised that many people have found AP
Chemistry to be a particularly challenging course with a particularly challenging exam, even when compared with other AP
courses and AP exams.
For all students choosing to enroll in the Advanced Placement Chemistry course, a solid Chemistry I
background is assumed. (The Howard County Program of Studies states a B or better in Chemistry I) Advanced
Placement Chemistry IS a college level chemistry course, covering most topics which would be covered in TWO
semesters of college level chemistry. To accomplish such a formidable task, we need to HIT THE GROUND
RUNNING!! Thus, each AP Chemistry student is asked to complete the following assignments in preparation for
DAY 1 of the 2010-2011 school year

Visit the Student and Parent's College Board AP Chemistry Web Site including the AP Chemistry Course
