Description

In this AP Chemistry course, you will be working with Thinkwell materials that include all the content you'll need to succeed in the classroom portion of AP Chemistry. You will learn the powerful ideas behind chemistry that will help you score a perfect 5 on the AP Chemistry exam. The class will be managed by a tutor who will be of assistance during the course. The tutor can help you to find your way around in the online course and in case of uncertainties in chemistry topics.

Thinkwell's video lectures cover the comprehensive scope and sequence of topics covered on the AP Chemistry exam. Diagnostic tests that tell you exactly what you need to study.

Automatically graded exercises with immediate feedback allow you to quickly determine which areas you'll need to spend extra time studying. Concise, illustrated review notes help you distill the fundamental ideas, concepts, and formulas you'll need to know in order to succeed on the AP Chemistry exam.

Thinkwell's AP® Chemistry includes all of these features to prepare you for the big exam:

On top of that, you will receive a list of laboratory assignments that will include virtual and hands-on labs which you will elaborate.

The AP Chemistry course provides students with a college-level foundation to support future advanced coursework in chemistry. Students cultivate their understanding of chemistry through inquiry-based investigations, as they explore content such as: atomic structure,
intermolecular forces and bonding, chemical reactions, kinetics, thermodynamics, and equilibrium.

The AP Chemistry course is designed to be the equivalent of the general chemistry course usually taken during the first college year.

 PREREQUISITES
Students should have successfully completed a general high school chemistry course and Algebra II.

Student’s Experience


Kurz mi poskytl pevné základy zejména v oblasti obecné a fyzikální chemie, ze kterých jsem mohl  čerpat a na kterých jsem mohl nadále stavět zejména v prvních dvou ročnících bakalářského studia. Znalosti získané v těchto kurzech bylo možné uplatnit v řadě předmětů a podstatná část učiva na vysoké škole pro mě pak nebyla nová. Případnou nástavbu následně nebylo těžké zařadit do kontextu a měl jsem více času soustředit se na předměty nechemického charakteru. V neposlední řadě byla velice prospěšná výuka v anglickém jazyce, díky které jsem získal znalosti chemické nomenklatury v angličtině nezbytné k porozumění vědeckým článkům při rešerši k literární části bakalářské a diplomové práce.
