Summer AP Chemistry Workshop
UC Riverside, August 7-11, 2000

This page contains information for the workshop participants and gives us a place to add updated materials as they are collected. Check this area for updated information.


Shared Materials
Some review materials are saved as Adobe Acrobat® files. This area will grow as participants send me material to share... such as Michael's Le Chatelier's Lab and Jim's Activity Series Activity (with applications to Mn nodules).
Download Acrobat Software Go to the Adobe Acrobat® website for a free software download if you do not have the plug-in. The initial download time may vary, but after that you'll be able to view and print all of these study materials quickly and easily.
Fuzzy printout? Make sure you're using the print command that appears on the Adobe® menu bar just above the form. Do not print from your browser.

Great Link!
One of my students found a great site that lists all of the old AP Chemistry exams and hasn't yet been discovered and shut down by The College Board. Besides the exams, there are brief tutorials and practice quizzes on many of the topics in AP Chemistry.

Michael's Le Chatelier's Lab (Acrobat)

Lee Marek's video from the 1950's with "Properties of Gases" and "Properties of Liquids" IS still available through his school. Here is the order form in both Adobe Acrobat format as well as Microsoft Word. The videos are not expensive and should be a great addition to your library.
