This course follows the recommended course outline published by the College Board. Chemistry II AP is a college-level course taken at the high school setting. The college-level approach differs significantly from the first course in chemistry in the textbook used, range and depth of topic covered, and the kinds of laboratory work done by students as well as the time and effort required for a successful experience at the AP level. Lectures and investigations will involve a higher level of mathematical application. Emphasis will be placed on development and use of critical thinking skills. Students are encouraged to take College Board's Advanced Placement Exam in Chemistry.
