AP CHEMISTRY

Summer AssignmentUnit 0 (160-points)


Instructor: Enyonam Akondo
Summer Contact: enyonamakondo@cusd.com
Intent of Assignment:

Establish basic expectations of AP level chemistry in terms of student work and text.
Reintroduce and Refine some of the basic concepts and skills learned in chemistry.
Demonstrate student commitment and work ethic.
Allows for more class time for more difficult and less familiar concepts to be covered during the
school year.

Assignment Due Date:


Assignments must be completed and turned in by August 29, 2015.

Resources:
Chemistry 7th Edition (Zumdahl & Zumdahl)LMC
Lab Experiments for AP Chemistry, 1st Edition (Dr. Sally Vonderbrink)LMC
http://socratic.org/chemistry
225 Chemistry Topics on file
Five Steps to a 5 Review ManualLMC
AP Chemistry Crash Course (Adrian Dingle)Optional, but strongly recommended

Assignment Requirements
1. ALL calculation-based question must be supported by mathematical setup. Units must be included in
work and answer. Sloppy work will result in deduction of points. I must be able to clearly understand your
work.
2. Work must be completed in PENCIL only.
3. Complete each section/segment of questions on separate sheets of paper, and be sure to include a section title
(Pg.#, Question title, and problems).
