Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement Chemistry 12  (ACHE-12)
 
This is the second half of the AP Chemistry course succeeding Chemistry 11 Enriched. This course is designed to be the equivalent to the general chemistry course taken during the first year in the US college/university and covers about 90% of the same course in a Canadian college/ university. For some students, this course enables them to undertake, as first-year students, second-year work in the chemistry sequence at their institutions or to register in courses in other fields where general chemistry is a prerequisite. The regular Chemistry 12 curriculum is included in this course. Due to the heavy course load, students are expected to attend extra classes beyond the regular schedule. *Students will be qualified to write the AP Chemistry exam in early May.  More details on Advanced Placement Chemistry can be found at: http://media.collegeboard.com/digitalServices/pdf/ap/ap-chemistry-course-and-exam-description.pdf

Advanced Placement Physics 12  (APHY-12)
 
This the second "half" of the AP Physics course (the first half was covered in Physics 11E). The Advanced Placement Physics course is designed to be the equivalent of the general physics course usually taken during the first college or university year. For some students, this course enables them to undertake, as first-year students, second-year work in the physics sequence at their institutions or to register in courses in other fields where first year physics is a prerequisite. This is a one year non-calculus course which provides a systematic introduction to the main principles in both classical and modern physics. The course encompasses a review of mechanics, electricity, and magnetism, waves and optics, heat and thermodynamics, and modern physics. A knowledge of algebra and basic trigonometry is required. In addition to the regular Physics 12 topics, the following topics are covered.  The core topics are as follows. Heat, Kinetic Theory & Thermodynamics; Waves & Optics; Electricity.  More details on Advanced Placement Physics can be found at:  http://media.collegeboard.com/digitalServices/pdf/ap/ap-physics-course-description.pdf
