The chapters for this unit are Chapters 1 and 2 in our book.

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.
