Background Knowledge Expected
Requires Lots of Research
This class was tough.
AP Chemistry is a very interesting course especially for students willing to go into the chemistry field. It allows people to learn about chemicals and go in depth about the elements and bond structures. I would definitely recommend this course for anyone going into the medical or any sort of engineering field. It will definitely come in handy for college and there are a variety of topics covered.
The highlights of the course were definitely the labs. There is a wide range of labs performed so there is bound to be one that you can enjoy. Also the class was very inquiry based, which is where you design your own lab to solve an issue which is very interesting because it allows for independence. I learned a lot about how to structure ways to problem solve because of the inquiry based labs. Instead of relying on basic procedures I was allowed to formulate my own. I also learned a lot about the molecular level of chemistry. An example would be how the atoms bond or the different types of bonds.

Advice for students:
It is a very difficult course and it is very time consuming. However, it is worth it because it teaches a lot life skills and provides a good background for the chemistry field. Also it is very fun with the amount of activities and labs done.
