Ap chemistry project ideas
Lab experiment #19: effect of concentration on the reaction
When you teach an AP chemistry course and your students are still in school until the first or second week of June, you are faced with a common question and educational dilemma: “What are you going to do with your AP students now that the AP chemistry exam is over?”
Since 2001, I’ve been teaching AP chemistry, and after the test, I’ve done a number of educational activities with my AP chemistry students. We’ve tried out fun labs like tie-dyeing or making ice cream, gone on field trips to chemical plants in the Green Bay area, put on science demonstration shows for the high school’s physical science students, made videos on how to complete basic chemical lab procedures, and made quizzes for NOVA videos. I wanted to do something different this year and do a book study project. I wanted my AP chemistry students’ last month of school to be fun, instructional, enjoyable, and enlightening.
After talking with one of my fellow AP science teachers about a book that his spouse had just finished reading, I decided to do a book review. The Disappearing Spoon, written by Sam Kean, was the title of the novel. I then considered all of the potential possibilities for performing a book review. Could I have all of my students read the same book and then discuss it as a class? Can I only have a few book options for students to read and discuss in small book groups? Can I amass a diverse selection of books and allow each student to have their own specific individual book?
Lab experiment #15: volumetric analysis – ph titration
It took about one explosion a week, according to an experienced chemistry professor, to keep college students’ attention in chemistry lectures. We’d be in huge trouble with a lot of parents and teachers if we kept on at that speed! Don’t worry; there are always plenty of bubbles, fizzes, bangs, and color changes to discover.
If you live anywhere that gets cold in the winter, you’ve probably seen trucks out spreading a mixture of sand and salt on the streets to help de-ice the road after a snowfall. Have you ever been curious about how this works? This simple chemistry project will help you figure out what you’re looking for.
Do you drink tap water that has been filtered? Many ads say that these filters make drinking water cleaner and safer. But what do these filters really do, and is the water still cleaner as a result? Their filling material, activated carbon, provides the cleaning strength. It comes in a range of shapes and sizes, including powder, granules, foams, and blocks. Do you think the type of activated carbon in the filter makes a difference? In this operation, you’ll see if bigger or smaller is better.

Advanced Placement (AP) Chemistry is a college-level course available to high school students. Pre-AP Chemistry is not a class, but rather a series of techniques (for grades K-12) to help students prepare for AP Chemistry or a general chemistry course in college.
The theory of chemistry Projects in grades K–11 and K–12 necessitate the implementation of theoretical principles learned in class. The d-block is used to research transition metals. The formation of alloys is one of the special properties of transition metals. Strong homogeneous solutions of two or more solids are known as alloys. An alloy is made up of two or more components, at least one of which is a metal, and the resulting substance has metallic properties. Alloys are created with the aim of having better properties than pure metals. Steel is stronger than iron, while brass, a copper-zinc alloy, is more resilient than copper and more appealing to the eye than zinc.
Ap chemistry lab 11 – phenolphthalein as a ph indicator
If you’re unfamiliar with the stuff, AP Chemistry can be daunting. There are a lot of strange formulas to recall for superscripts and subscripts, and it requires a lot of arithmetic, which some students dislike. Is AP Chemistry, however, as difficult as it appears?
The percentage of test takers who earn a 3 or higher on an AP exam is a strong measure of how demanding the AP class is. If a large number of students pass, it could indicate that the class isn’t as difficult as it seems.
However, it’s likely that the particular class attracts higher-achieving students who are well-prepared and do well on exams in general. As a result, in addition to score averages, we must also understand student expectations and the content’s actual complexity.
Even if a large percentage of students pass an AP exam, if only a small percentage of them get 5s, it typically means true mastery of the subject is difficult to come by. On most AP tests, getting a 5 involves just answering 60-70 percent of questions correctly, so getting a 5 doesn’t always mean you’ve grasped the content completely.
