Technical/Software Requirements
In addition to a computer, internet access, and an email account, you will need the following:

  • TI-80 Series Graphing Calculator or TI-30 Series Scientific Calculator

  • PDF Capability (Scanner or Phone/Camera App such as Abbyy FineScanner)
  • School Supplies
    Each topic covered in AP® Chemistry will have chapter outlines and other handouts that you will need to organize in two binders. In addition to the binders, you will need two notebooks - one for recording your lab data and a second one for taking notes as you do your chemistry assignments. Chemistry has a lot of vocabulary and you will need to create flashcards. It's fine to use standard index cards or study-aid software such as Quizlet.

  • Course Binder - One 3" 3-ringed binder and 19 tabs

  • WebAssign Notebook - One spiral or digital notebook such as RocketBook

  • Lab Instructions Binder - One 1 ˝" 3-ringed binder for filing lab instructions
