Pre-A.P. Chemistry is to prepare for high school A.P. Chemistry and/or general college chemistry. Topics to be studied include atomic structure, periodicity, basic nomenclature, reaction classifications, stoichiometry, intro to thermodynamics, reaction kinetics, acids, and nuclear chemistry.
The main differences between Pre-A.P. Chem and the General Chem courses are the depth of topic study and mathematical manipulations. You are expected to read, take Cornell notes, and work the problems.
