Prerequisites: Chem Study
Taught at the college level, this course covers topics included in the AP Chemistry Curriculum. Students learn essential lab techniques necessary for college science. They work independently, in small groups, and with lab partners. Lab work constitutes about 30 percent of the course. Topics covered include an in-depth study of equilibrium, thermodynamics, kinetics and bonding, quantum mechanics, acid base chemistry, and electrochemistry. College-level lab experiments involve acid-base titrations, qualitative analysis, gravimetric analysis, redox titrations, spectrophotometry, and other techniques.
