AP CHEMISTRY 2011/2012
Classroom Requirements:
 2 inch three-ring binder for this class only
 1 ½ inch three-ring Laboratory binder/portfolio
 Loose leaf paper
 Pencil and pen
 Graphing Calculator
 Box of lab gloves
Provided by School/Required for Class:
 Zumdahl “Chemistry” Textbook
 Zumdahl Study Guide
 Zumdahl Experimental Chemistry
 Attendance and tardies will be dealt with per the LNHS Student Handbook.
Homework assignments must be clearly identified by page number, assigned questions,
and date. Answers must be outlined with a box, excluding theory questions.
Test Corrections/Re-Test:
Re-tests are available on all chapter tests within 5 days of receiving a test grade. An
average of the two grades will be recorded. Students will not be able to re-test unless all
homework assignments, labs, and study guide questions have been completed. Students
only receive 1 re-test per semester. Please choose wisely.
Students are expected to abide by all laboratory safety regulations. Safety glasses,
gloves, and aprons will be required for most lab experiments (provided by the school).
For every day that an assigned lab report is late, the student will lose 10 percent. If a
student is missing more than one lab each quarter, they will receive an “incomplete” until
this deficiency is rectified. Once graded labs are returned, late labs will have a 50 percent
reduction in points.
Laboratory Notebook (Binder)
A laboratory notebook is required to organize students’ graded lab reports. It should not
be brought to class daily, but will be checked and graded at the end of each quarter.
Missed Notes, Homework, Assignments, Labs:
Students are responsible for missed notes, homework, and assignments due to absence.
This make-up work must be completed within (5) school days. Any exemptions will be
dealt with by Administration.
School Rules:
Students are also required to abide by LNHS rules, including but not limited to:
No electronic devices (I-pods, cell-phones, pagers, etc….)
No profanity
On-line Assignments:
Students will be assigned on-line homework through the Quest program provided by the
University of Texas. The student’s link to Quest is:

AP Chemistry – Course Syllabus
Class Profile:
AP Chemistry is a year-long, 90 minute course.
A typical week is organized to provide:
 3-4 days of lecture focused on the key objectives listed in the syllabus, including
teacher demonstrations
 1-2 days of lab activity. Labs may exceed one 90 minute class, depending on the
requirements of the specific lab activity. In addition, some sections/objectives are
more conducive to lab activity than others and will have more lab activity.
AP Chemistry Objectives:
The AP Chemistry course is designed to be the equivalent of the general chemistry
usually taken during the first college year. For some students, this course enables them to
undertake, as freshmen, second-year work in chemistry sequence at their institution or to
register in courses in other fields where general chemistry is a pre-requisite. For other
students, the AP Chemistry course fulfills the laboratory science requirement and frees
time for other courses.
AP Chemistry should meet the objectives of a good general chemistry course. Students
in such a course should attain a depth of understanding of fundamentals and a reasonable
competence in dealing with chemical problems. The course should contribute to the
development of the student’s abilities to think clearly and to express their ideas, orally
and in writing, with clarity and logic. The college course in general chemistry differs
qualitatively from the usual first secondly school course in chemistry with respect to the
kind of laboratory work done by students. Quantitative differences appear in the number
of topics treated, the time spent on the course by students, and the nature and the variety
of experiments done in the laboratory.
The AP Chemistry course is designed to be taken only after the successful completion of
a first course in high school chemistry (Chemistry 1). Surveys of students who take the
AP Chemistry Exam indicate that the probability of achieving a grade of 3 or higher is
significantly greater for students who successfully complete a first course in high school
chemistry prior to undertaking the AP course. Thus, it is STRONGLY recommended
that credit in a first-year chemistry course be a prerequisite for enrollment in an AP
Chemistry class. In addition, the recommended mathematics prerequisites for an AP
Chemistry class is the successful completion of a second-year algebra course.
AP Chemistry Topics:
Structure of Matter
(20 percent)
Atomic theory and atomic structure
Chemical bonding
Nuclear chemistry
States of Matter
(20 percent)
Liquids and solids
(35 – 40 percent)
Reaction types
Descriptive Chemistry

Making observations of chemical reactions
Recording data/Communicating effectively the results
Calculating/interpreting results based on the quantitative data obtained.
Unless otherwise noted, each laboratory will be “hands-on” and will involve:
physical manipulation of equipment and materials in order to
make relevant observations and collect data
use the collected data to form conclusions and verify hypotheses
communicate and compare their results and procedures
(informally to classmates and in a formal, written report to the
Text – “Chemistry” by Zumdahl (6th Edition), ancillaries and supplements
The College Board Science Achievement Tests/Past AP Exams
Video/Internet Resources (APEX, Glencoe, Zumdahl Interactive 6.0)
Additional advanced chemistry texts (Brown et al, Hill et al, Holt Modern
Chemistry, Glencoe Chemistry Matter and Change)
HM Class Prep with HM Testing v6.1
Princeton and Cole AP Chemistry Test Preparation
This course is given in terms of the Zumdahl Chemistry textbook (6th Edition). The
problems at the end of the chapters are very challenging and serve as an excellent tool for
students to use to truly comprehend the material. The problems also indicate the depth of
coverage required for each topic.

Lab: Determining the Specific Heat of an Unknown Metal – the specific heat
capacity of a nail will be experimentally determined by measuring the
temperature change of water and of the nail after it has been heated to
approximately 850 degrees Celsius in a Bunsen burner (45 minutes)
Lab: Thermochemistry and Hess’ Law – three different combinations of acids
and bases are made. All of the reactions are exothermic. The temperature
change of each reaction will be measured and the enthalpy will be calculated.
The reactions are chosen so that subtracting the chemical equation for the second
reaction from that of the first reaction will give the chemical equation for the
third reaction. Consequently, according to Hess’ Law, subtracting enthalpy of
the second equation for the first should lead to the enthalpy of the third;
therefore, verifying Hess’ Law. (90 minutes)
