AP Chemistry is designed to be the equivalent of the general chemistry course offered during the first year of college.
Major emphasis includes the structure of matter, kinetic theory of gases, chemical equilibria, chemical kinetics, acids
and bases, an in-depth study of basic thermodynamics concepts, reaction writing, and extensive laboratory work.
The rigorous and challenging curriculum is designed to prepare the student for the Advanced Placement Chemistry Exam
or for earning dual enrollment credit through Chandler-Gilbert Community College.
Honors Chemistry is a challenging study of inorganic chemistry for the intrinsically motivated student. Major emphasis is
on the experimental method, critical and independent thinking, and enrichment research activities.
Class prerequisites: Successful completion of Biology; placement is based on a predetermined score on a district-approved
test, Geometry B, or teacher recommendation.
