Unit 15 is Chapter 16 our book.    This unit is a look at Thermodynamics.   Back in Chapter 6 we took some of the basics which we called Thermochemistry.  This is a much more detailed look.  As was the case with the previous chapters, it is very mathematical.  Instead of just being concerned with heat, we will now include the topics and ideas of entropy and Free Energy.

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 pate such as PowerPoints etc.

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.
