AP Chemistry - Daegu High School 2013-14


NOTE: This website "CONTINUALLY" has problems, so I suggest that you use the DHS sharepoint site as much as possible: http://extranet.dghs.pac.dodea.edu/classroom/pearson/default.aspx The sharepoint site does require a usename and password, which is why I am posting documents and links here as well.

SUMMER PACKET for AP Chemistry

The only way to complete all the topics in this course is to move at a very rapid pace. I hope to complete instruction on all AP Chemistry content material early enough so that we have several weeks to review for the AP exam. Therefore, it is critical for all students to complete the Summer Assignments and be ready to start the AP Chemistry curriculum. (Not graded)

You must complete the summer assignment that follows. We will have a test on this material on the second day of class. In order for us to save some valuable time later in the course, everyone needs to be ready to go. Carefully read the information on the summer packet on the pages that follow. (NOTE: The assignments will NOT be graded, the TEST will)
