Hey Everyone!! (I miss seeing your faces!)
Here is the info from College Board about AP Chemistry:
Free resources will be available through exam day to help you get ready. While we encourage you to wait until closer to the test to decide, any student registered for an exam can cancel at no charge.
For the the 2019-20 exam administration only:
- We’re developing secure 45-minute online free-response exams for each course.
- The exam content will focus on what most schools were able to complete by early March.
- You’ll be able to take your exams on any device you have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. You’ll also have the option to write your responses by hand and submit a photo.
- Colleges support this solution and are committed to ensuring that AP students receive the credit they have worked to earn. For decades, colleges have accepted a shortened AP Exam for college credit when groups of students have experienced emergencies.
- We know that not all students have access to the internet or a device. We’re working on solutions to help students get what they need to show their best work. If you need mobile tools or connectivity or know someone who does, you can reach us directly to let us know.
The exams will be secure. We’re using a variety of digital security tools, including plagiarism detection software.
Free AP Review Classes
Beginning on Wednesday, March 25, you can attend free, live AP review courses, delivered by AP teachers from across the country. These courses:
- Are optional, mobile-friendly, and can be used alongside any work your teacher may give you.
- Will be available on-demand, so you can access them any time.
- Will focus on reviewing the skills and concepts from the first 75% of the course. There will also be some supplementary lessons including topics from the final 25% of the course.
To access the live classes and recordings, visit the AP YouTube channel. We’ll be adding more courses soon.
Here is the link for the times for the live review sessions:
Message from me:)
Because they have cut units 8 and 9 from the AP test, there is be no Acids/ Bases/ Buffers/ Titrations/ Entropy/ Free Energy/ Electrochemistry.
Basically everything we have learned since Ksp and everything I was going to teach when we got back has been cut out of the exam. Also becuase of that, I
will not be putting the last test that we took before break in to the gradebook. I will grade it and we will go over it when school starts back up again.
When we get back I will also finish teaching the material that is not on the ap test (for dual credit and future Chem knoweldge).
Until we get back I will be posting practice Free Response Questions that you should try to review for the test. I am not sure when the test is going to
happen yet, Supposedly they will let us know on April 3rd.
I would laso strongly suggest getting an AP Review book and gonig over the mateiral up to Acids and Bases. Just review the concepts and the free response
Materials that I would like you to practice and videso that I think will help will be posted in google classroom.
