Chapter 7 is about atomic structure.  

We will explore the structure of the atom as well as what parts of the atom are responsible for its different properties.  There is a moderate amount of mathematics in this chapter.  Also in this chapter is a section on the Periodic Chart which serves as the most useful tool that a chemist has.    Resources for the Periodic Chart can be found on another page to the left:  Periodicity and the Chart.

Table Code:  

KA - Khan Academy.  This is an online series of tutorials and guides to help with AP Chemistry Topics. Khan Academy is an initiative to give students tutorials in Chemistry and other disciplines.  These and items from Bozeman Chemistry will be used in class.

BZ - Bozeman Chemistry.   This is similar to Khan Academy but covers some different topics.  Most of the videos have supplementals at the bottom of each page such as PowerPoints etc.

IT - IsaacsTeach Videos.  This is also similar to Khan Academy videos, but with a little clearer presentation.

TT - Teacher Tools.  Teacher Tools is a set of reference materials, worksheets, and self-quizzes to assist in practice.

Q - Quizlet. This will be a link to a Quizlet on the topic.

Animation - A short clip usually under two minutes long.

PPT - This is an abbreviation for PowerPoint.  Some are originals and others are from other sources.

Podcasts - Podcasts are audio lectures on a topic. Practically all of them on this page are going to be original so it is a good way to reinforce a lecture.
