AP Chemistry Summer Assignment


Mr. Cain

Room L-1

You will need two composition notebooks: one for labs and one for homework. Both notebooks should have an accurate table of contents. Please complete the following problems in your HW notebook and submit on the first day of school.

All work must be completed in ink, with no white out. Mistakes should simply be indicated with a simple and single line through the middle of the mistake, with your initials on the right side. Please, do not cut, paste, or staple any material or charts into either notebook. Removal of any pages from the notebooks is strictly prohibited and will invalidate your notebook (that means no credit). Good luck!
The Lab notebook is a lab journal intended as a diary of everything you actually use and observe and calculate in a laboratory experiment. It is recommended that the results sections of completed experiments be photocopied and included in formal lab reports.
