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. The AP* curriculum is organized into Six Big Ideas. Modules on the Six Big Ideas form the heart of the course. Problems and questions from previously released AP* exams are used to relate the course content to the concepts and principles addressed by the exams. Participants interact with each of these Big Ideas by working through released AP* problems, gathering and sharing resources from the instructor and other participants, and completing assignments that are useful for developing an AP* course syllabus. Participants are also required to consider an experiment that can be performed in a laboratory at their schools or at home and modify the experiment to demonstrate guided-inquiry principals as required by the AP* curriculum.
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.
