Additional materials for the AP teacher....
Here is a list of 90 lectures for a typical AP Chemistry class. I have used brief descriptions for each lecture
For a much more detailed document review the AP LectureGuide. This document consists of chapters which roughly follow the textbook by Brown, Lemay and Bursten. Each chapter is made up of a list of objectives. Each objective has a corresponding activity/question/problem students are to do to learn the concept. Each chapter contains problem sets for the students to do to learn the material. Information is also provided as to how many lectures to spend on the material and what material to cover during each lecture. This document is only the student version of the lectureguide. The teaching partner's (AP teacher) version contains answers to every activity and all the problem sets. The teaching partner's version, along with all of the student materials and a collection of animations (Chemistry Animations) are available from;
At Oklahoma State University I teach introductory chemistry. The following are Web sites for course which cover the same content covered in an AP chemistry course. Understand these are two years old and have not been updated recently. I have been teaching a diiferent sequence lately. However, there are still useful features of these web site. In particular there are examinations, problem sets and lecture notes which you may find useful.
The following experiments are from the laboratory component of my AP course.
