    You may need to register and log in to answer these questions. Most will be found in

    the chemistry section. You are responsible for finding your own way around the site,

    but it is important to down load the AP chemistry course description. It answers all your

    specific questions about what you need to do and know specifically for the chemistry

    test, including those on this sheet. You may want to refer to this document as we

    proceed throughout the year.

    On or before the first day of class submit, by email, your answers in with your name and

    the assignment title in the upper right hand corner.

    Answer these questions in complete sentences on a separate page.

    1. On what date did you gather the information below?

    2. What is the date of the 2020 AP Chemistry exam (the one many of you will take)?

    3. What are the two major parts to the exam? What percent of your total score does

    each count?

    4. What are the types of problems will you be required to answer in the free response


    5. Specifically where in the exam will you be allowed or not be allowed to use the


    a. Calculator

    b. Periodic table

    c. Sheets with formulas and reduction potentials

    6. Are there any examples of released questions available at the web site? Describe.

    7. Is there anything new specified for this year’s chemistry exam?

    • Memorization of material is not something that will be encouraged or emphasized in this course because

    this is a problem-solving course and it is impossible to memorize everything you will be asked to do. However, memorization of some topics/rules is necessary. This information needs to be second

    nature to you to ensure your success in this course.

    Part 3: Chem language

    When you report to class in August, I want you to be prepared to speak “the language”

    of chemistry. For now that means knowing the names, charges, and formulas of

    common ions and the names and formulas of ionic compounds, covalent compounds,

    and acids. Review the following pages of instructions and complete the work that

    follows. We will have a quiz as soon as the second day of class. Note: In studying, do

    NOT treat this as a one-time quiz. You will need to know these from memory in every

    quiz and test we take throughout the year.


    1) “-ites” have one less oxygen than “-ates” (also “hypo” means even one less, “per”

    means one more)

    2) The prefix “bi” or “hydrogen” indicates that you must add a H atom and increase the

    charge by one (in the positive direction).

    3) Ions made from the halogens (Cl, Br, and I) differ only in the central atom (see

    chlorate and iodate as an example) 4) “thio” means sulfur.

    Nomenclature Review

    Forming binary ionic compounds

    A. In a binary ionic compound the total positive charges must equal the total

    negative charges. Use the “Criss Cross Method”.

    B. Ex. What ionic compound would form when calcium ions combine with

    bromide ions?! Use the steps to the Criss Cross Method:

    1. Write the ions with their charges, cations are always first. Ca+2 Br-1 2.

    Cross over the charges by using the absolute value of each ion’s charge

    as the subscript for the other ion.! Ca1 Br2

    3. Check to make sure the subscripts are in the lowest whole number

    ratio possible. Then write the formula. CaBr2
