This class was tough.
This course was amazing, I learned so much so quickly! Mrs. Fraser is one of the best teachers I've ever had. The labs are all interesting, and somehow so is the textbook.
I learned how to do chemistry. Honors Chem 1 was great, but really dumbed-down. In AP, we learned what was actually going on. Almost every concept we covered was further probed in labs or simulations, making the course very active and hands-on.

Advice for students:
This course is difficult. The textbook homework is mandatory (she collects it and actually grades it). The worksheets she gives out daily aren't collected or anything, but if you want an A, do them. They help a lot. If you're not doing too well on tests, put time and effort into perfect lab reports and your grade should rise. If you're still not where you want to be, go visit Mrs. Fraser in the mornings or after school and she will really help you figure out the material. Also, choose your lab partners with care, as a bad one can really get in your way.
