CP Chemistry (sometimes called pre-AP chemistry or chemistry 1) is a first-year chemistry course that exceeds the requirements of the Ohio Department of Education for high school chemistry. Topics studied in CP Chemistry include measurement, matter, energy & heat, gases, atomic structure, nuclear chemistry, electronic structure, periodicity & the periodic table, chemical formulas & nomenclature, covalent bonding & molecular geometry, intermolecular forces, solutions, chemical reactions & equations, oxidation & reduction, the mole, stoichiometry, kinetics & equilibrium, and acids & bases. CP Chemistry prepares students to take AP Chemistry and/or the SAT subject test in chemistry.
