AP Chemistry

To prepare for AP Chemistry, students should join the FlinnPREP AP Chemistry course found here. Once you get to the website, you will see a place to enter a student linking code. Please enter the code 2wr9d and then sign in as a new user. Once you have done that, you should be able to access your page any time. Before school starts, the expectation is that each student will have completed chapters 1,2,3 & 6 (nomenclature, atomic structure and the periodic table, chemical reactions and stoichiometry, respectively). The goal is to earn 80% or higher. If your score is below 80%, you can review the material and try the quiz again. Each quiz is 20 questions long, and all questions are multiple choice. The remaining quizzes are optional, but they will eventually be a required part of the course. Please direct any questions to Dr. Cedergren at
