CHM 6530 1 to 4 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Designed for current or future high school teachers of chemistry. Integrates critical topics through the six big understandings in chemistry (composition of matter, physical properties of matter, chemical changes, rates of reaction, energy in chemical systems, chemical equilibrium) with the process skills necessary for success in science. Reviews data related to student performance on advanced course work such as the AP exam. Offers students an opportunity to address multiple ways to prepare their classrooms for challenges while taking AP courses and prework to an AP course. Although the course work is best suited for educators who teach or have taught advanced College Board AP chemistry exam prep or capstone chemistry courses for high school juniors or seniors, teachers of other grade levels are welcome to participate.
