Mr. Rama Bulusu
AP Chemistry college board exam will be held in May 2018.
The summer assignment is posted below for students taking AP chemistry during year 2017-18. Email me to obtain the google classroom code.
Here is College board chemistry link: http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/apc/public/courses/teachers_corner/2119.html
For the year 2017-18 .. I will post all the materials on Google Classroom. Instructional materials , comments etc. Please make an effort to check for any changes on a timely basis. Please inform your parent/Guardians of the same. Any questions direct it to me through email.
Make sure you have the secure class code to use google classroom.
You can direct your questions about the assignment to email@example.com.

Information related to chemistry exam conducted by collegeboard.
The AP Chemistry course is designed to be the equivalent of the general chemistry course usually taken during the first college year. This course is taken with the idea in mind that students will take the AP Exam to receive college credit or placement at the student’s college of choice. For some students, this course enables them to undertake, in their first year, second-year work in the chemistry sequence at their institution or to register in courses in other fields where general chemistry is a prerequisite. For other students, the AP Chemistry course fulfills the laboratory science requirement and frees time for other courses. Such credit and placement tied to the AP Chemistry exam could lead to students' readiness for and engagement in the study of advanced topics in subsequent college courses and eventually the achievement of a STEM degree and successful career.
The course centers around six big ideas and seven science practices:
|Big Ideas||Science Practices|
|1. Structure of Matter||1. Drawing, explaining, and interpreting representations|
|2. Bonding and Intermolecular Forces||2. Using mathematics and logical routines appropriately|
|3. Chemical Reactions||3. Asking and refining scientific questions|
|4. Kinetics||4. Designing and implementing data collection strategies|
|5. Thermodynamics||5. Analyzing and evaluating data|
|6. Chemical Equilibrium||6. Making predictions and justifying claims with evidence|
| ||7. Connecting chemistry concepts across the big ideas.|
AP FINAL REVIEW: 2 ( NO materials related to metallurgy, stud of non-metals, coordination chemistry)
