This course is designed to be the equivalent of the general chemistry course usually taken during the first college year. A college text is used and emphasis placed on chemical calculations, mathematical formulation of principles and rigorous laboratory work. Six areas of chemistry will be emphasized: Atomic Theory, Chemical Bonding and Intermolecular Forces, Chemical Reactions, Equilibrium, and Kinetics. The Advanced Placement Test designed by Educational Testing Service will be taken by the students in May. Successfully passing the Advanced Placement exam may result in earned college credit for the individual student.
