Unit 1 is an introduction into Chemistry. It covers Chapters 1 and 2 from our text.
We will look into how Chemistry is organized and learn some general ideas that will be used all year. A key part of this unit is the Scientific Method. We will also cover some important laws that are central to Chemistry.
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.
