In order to complete this assignment, you must pick up the AP chemistry textbook from me in room 124 before you leave school for the summer break.  If during the summer you are having difficulty with the assignment or just need to ask some questions, please feel free to contact me.  My home phone number is (973) 729-7860.  I also recommend that you get together with other students who are taking AP chemistry and work out problems with them.

I will collect the completed assignment the second day that we return to school.  I will take any questions that you have on the assignment and the chapter reading and we will have a quiz on the material the second day of school.

When completing this assignment, make sure that you show all work neatly for math problems and for concept questions, give a complete concise explanation.  Circle any mathematical answers so they can be found quickly.  For the outline, be sure you could use it as a guide for any questions you may have on the first two chapters!

If you have any further questions, please see me. Welcome to AP Chemistry!
