Course DescriptionThis 45-hour equivalent course includes intensive sessions for teachers who are designing an AP® high school chemistry course or teaching existing courses. Initially, participants are introduced to the AP® chemistry course requirements and the format of the AP® chemistry exam through The College Board materials. Modules on five different chemical topics are covered, and participants develop lesson plans on these topics. Problems and questions from previously released AP® exams are used to relate the course content to the concepts and principles addressed by the exams. The heart of the course focuses on the development of nine laboratory experiments by the participants that meet The College Board requirements for recommended laboratories. Participants are required to perform two of the developed experiments in laboratories at their schools. Five of the laboratory experiments are tied to the topical modules. Finally, the teachers are required to develop an AP® course syllabus.
Course OutlineThis online course includes intensive sessions for teachers who are designing an AP® Chemistry course for their high school or planning to take over an existing program.
