AP CHEM TEST PREP (2020)

Know the REFERENCE TABLE and the NEED TO KNOW summary!

PART 1:

60 multiple-choice questions

90 min, NO calculator

PART 2:

7 free-response questions

105 min, calculator

"What's probably NOT on the AP chem exam?"

  • Nuclear chemistry
  • Exceptions to electron configuration (e.g. Cu and Cr)
  • Quantum numbers (n, l, ml, ms)
  • Phase diagrams (P vs T graph)
  • Molality (∆T = iKm)
  • Crystal structures
  • Trigonal bipyramidal (sp3d) and octahedral (sp3d2) hybridizations
  • Molecular orbitals
  • Lewis acids and bases
  • Arrhenius equations, ln (k1/k2) = (-Ea/R)(1/T1 - 1/T2)
  • Polyprotic acid titrations
  • Organic nomenclature

TIPS

  • Say "thermodynamically favorable" instead of "spontaneous"
  • Say "reaction proceeds" instead of "shifts"
  • Say "more polarizable electrons" to describe stronger dispersion forces
  • Say "higher effective nuclear charge" when discussing an element with more protons
  • Say "Coulombic attraction" when explaining greater lattice energy

REVIEW ASSIGNMENT

You will be assigned one free-response question to teach the class, showing all work, no notes. (The question will be projected on the screen, and everyone will have a copy in front of them.) This counts as one test grade

    1. Teach us for 20 minutes or less.
    2. Tell us the topics covered by your problem.
    3. Write on the board examples of correct answers.
    4. Tell us the point values for each part.
    5. Have good eye contact & be audible.
    6. Be a good participant during other students' problems.

GRADING:

  • 100 = Show up & have 6/6 of the above
  • 96 = Show up & have 5/6 of the above
  • 92 = Show up & have 4/6 of the above
  • 88 = Show up & have 3/6 of the above
  • 84 = Show up & have 2/6 of the above
  • 80 = Show up & have 1/6 of the above
  • 76 = Show up & have 0/6 of the above
