AP Chemistry: Summer Work 2015


Due dates
Task guidelines
Task Point Breakdown


2014-05-31: You can turn in a hard copy of the commitment form after it is signed, or you can scan it and send an electronic copy.

Due date

All tasks are due by Friday, July 25, 11:59 p.m. PST.

I will grade either of the following:
  • a hard copy of your work. (hard copies are more likely to receive comments and corrections)
  • an electronic copy of your work provided (1) your first or last name is included in the file names; (2) no file is larger than 1 MB; and (3) the formats are cross-platform compatible. (electronic submissions might not receive comments or corrections)

Keep in mind that if you are submitting hard copies, the High School Office actually closes a little bit before 11:59 p.m., so plan ahead! If you send your work by mail, please direct it to the attention of Mr. Klein.

If you need to make special arrangements for submitting your work (for instance, if you know you will be out of town), then make alternate arrangements with me at least two weeks before the deadline.

Task Guidelines

1. Task 1 is the only one that must be typed (which you can do directly in the Word document if you want). If you want to type Tasks 3 and 4 as well, you can also do that directly in the Word document.If you want to print the instructions and do the other tasks by hand, then I recommend printing the PDF version so the margins work out right.

2. To do the work, you will either need a chemistry textbook (just about any will do) or access to the internet. Either way, include a references page for resources you use (books, websites, etc.). It should look the same as a works cited page, but the difference is that you will not actually cite works. The format can be found in the Writing Handbook.

3. Do all of the work yourself (this means, but is not limited to, not sharing answers with other students and not having others complete your work). Do not plagiarize. The definition of plagiarism might be much broader than you realize. Check out the Purdue OWL page on Avoiding Plagiarism or this page on Types of Plagiarism. See the Student/Parent Handbook and AP Authorization Contract if you are curious about the consequences of plagiarism.
