Chang Chemistry: How much to complete for credit?


Recommended Posts

Hi! My son used Chang's Chemistry (9th edition) this year for AP Chem through ChemAdvantage. The class covered up through chapter 19 (electrochem) and also chapter 24 on organic chemistry. Excellent book, in my son's opinion. The class was great for both learning and AP exam prep. I have no idea how I would approach this book for a standard high school class. Have you thought of using the DIVE cd to give you a framework and then adjust the chapters to match? If you have time to do 2 years of chem, I would suggest a high school level text for the first year, and then use Chang for AP. Hope this helps a bit!

Blessings,

April

I found a syllabus for an AP chem class that uses this book. Go to http://www.chemistrygeek.com/chem2.htm and scroll down to "syllabus" under the heading Study Aids. It looks like this teacher uses 20 of the chapters (out of order, even).

 

Thank you. That may be above his level, but is some good information on the site.

I'm not sure if he'll want to do a full two year course. We're planning an integrated course so the text would be spread out over 3 years anyway. I'll look into the DIVE Cds, thanks.
