This unit deals with a lot of the different types of calculations that we will use in Chemistry this year. We will look into what moles are, how the idea was developed and why it is so crucial to an understanding of Chemistry. This unit is very mathematical so you will need your calculator and periodic chart every day. Another important topic is how to calculate formula weights which is a needed skill for so many topics in Chemistry. There will be several quizzes on them which will count for
points and with chances for extra credit on every quiz.
IT - IsaacsTeach. This is an online series of tutorials and guides to help with AP Chemistry Topics. They are very well done and align to our class quite well.
MR - Mark Rosengarten. This is similar to IsaacsTeach but covers some different topics. These are often more entertaining than the usual science videos.
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.
PH - Resources with this code are from a previous textbook that I used.
A Short note about animations and videos.
There are several sources for a complete library of chemistry videos and animations. For the tutorial videos, I have gone through many of the sources and have chosen two of them that I think are the best. I looked for the ones that were the clearest, and most entertaining.
