- If you are taking AP Chemistry 12 next year, you will keep the textbook “Chemistry the Central Science” by Brown and LeMay and the solutions book to the exercise in the textbook. If you don’t have a copy of the textbook, you can try to find it online or in a public library.
- Your summer assignment will consist of four main things: a) chapter 25 (or ch26, depending on the edition of your textbook) on organic chemistry, b) ch13 on solutions and colligative properties, c) photoelectron spectroscopy (PES) and d) review of previous chapters. See instructions here:
Check back during the summer to see if anything else has been added.
4. Chapter worksheets and answer keys – no peeking at the answers until you have tried all the questions!!
(ch25 WS – oops posted the wrong one! For practice instead, you can do questions from the end of the chapter. Depending on which edition of the textbook you are using, the organic chemistry chapter may be chapter 25 or 26 (I think it is ch26 in the 6th edition and ch25 in the 9th edition). The focus is on writing and naming organic compounds (alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, cyclic compounds, aromatics, and the functional groups)
That said, here is the worksheet for the organic chemistry chapter: ch26 Organic Chemistry Worksheet
