    Length of Course: One Year (Lab Science)

    Credit: 1.0 Credit

    Grade Placement: 11, 12 or DC recommendation

    Prerequisites: Honors Chemistry, Integrated Math 2 and teacher recommendation or Chemistry, Integrated Math 2 with DC approval. State Code: 03106A000 Course Description: Enrollment in Advanced Placement Chemistry presupposes an exceptional interest as well as ability in science. The course includes a more extensive treatment of the theoretical aspects of chemistry than encountered in first- year high school chemistry. The course, which covers most of the topics of a first-year college chemistry course, is designed to prepare students to take the AP chemistry exam in the spring. Concepts are developed through the use of lectures, inquiry based learning activities, and suitable laboratory experiments. Note: It is strongly recommended that grade 11 students enroll concurrently in AP Physics 1/College Prep Physics or enroll in AP Physics 1/College Prep Physics in grade 12. AP Chemistry has a summer reading and a summer homework assignment.
