Kinetics is the study of how fast a reaction takes to occur. This is probably not all that intuitive at the moment. The reactions that you see are usually quick and seemingly instantaneous. That is because a household product that takes days or months (or longer) to occur wouldn't be of all that much use. Also, in your science classes, it wouldn't be feasible to have a reaction that takes 4 hours to occur so we can study it (those pesky other classes keep getting in the way).
Not all reactions happen as straight forward as they might appear, with reactants suddenly appearing as products. They go through steps and even then, not all reactions follow the same rules - mathematical treatment.
If you like puzzles, you should enjoy Kinetics.
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.
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.
