New blended learning options combine the benefits of classroom, laboratory and digital learning. Running AP® Chemistry labs can be a challenge—for students and teachers. They take a lot of time and can be intimidating, and it isn‘t always easy to connect experiments to the AP exam. All of this led us to develop a new way of doing AP Chemistry labs that will save time, increase student engagement and comprehension and lead to better exam scores. There’s no extraneous content; these labs teach exactly what your students need to know.
Our inquiry lab kits with real sample data have been designed and developed to meet the most current AP Chemistry guidelines and investigation requirements and are aligned to the AP Big Ideas, Learning Objectives and Science Practices. Each advanced-inquiry kit includes all the chemicals, specialized equipment and instructions needed for a class of 24 students working in pairs.
Special features include:
Prelab Concept, Technique and Procedure Videos: Students can watch at home to learn so they arrive in lab confident, and thye can rewatch them if they get stuck on a tricky procedure or calculation during a lab—making the time in lab as productive as possible.
Summary Videos: Relate the experiment to the AP exam, these show students sample exam questions based on each specific experiment—providing students with relevant preparation.
Practice on Real Exam Questions: Each lab includes a unique set of online problems that relates the experiment to the exam, and each problem has its own re-teach video—giving your students proper reinforcement when they struggle.
Adaptability: You can choose to run experiments in multiple ways with access to digital procedures and downloadable pdfs that are inquiry-based and include a step-by-step, prescriptive procedure for each lab—so you can adapt the labs to your liking.
A Digital Dashboard: This allows you to track student performance on assessment questions—seeing exactly where your students are at in their progress anytime.
Built-in Student Lab Safety Training: This introductory safety unit has videos and assessments on prelab safety, proper PPE, safety equipment, procedural safety, chemical disposal, hazard recognition and emergency response—ensuring that student safety always comes first.
Quality Materials: Includes all the necessary chemicals, solutions and supplies—our solutions and materials are quality controlled to ensure that labs go right.
Bonus Content (select labs only): We offer carefully curated Open Educational Resources (OER) and virtual reality (VR) simulations— providing engaging supplemental content and improving your students’ experiences.
