Chemistry AP

Pre or Co-requisite: Chemistry 12

Advanced Chemistry explores chemistry topics in greater detail than the regular grade 11 and 12 Chemistry courses. Explorations will occur through lecture, demonstration, problem solving and laboratory experiences. Participation in Chemistry competitions will be encouraged. Students should have attained a high “B” standing in Chemistry 11 (an 80% average is recommended). Students must have taken, or be taking, Chemistry 12 in addition to Advanced Chemistry.

This course prepares students to write the Advanced Placement Chemistry Examination that allows high scoring students to receive credit for first year university chemistry. The AP Chemistry Examination is optional and students will be required to pay a fee to sit the examination.
