Rowlett High School
What in the world ISN'T chemistry?
Greetings and Welcome! I am so happy that you can take a moment to visit. I am Binta Thomas, and I am from the "Spice of the Caribbean"- Grenada.
Currently, I teach Chemistry at Rowlett high school, "Go Eagles!" It is such an honor to be a part of this prestigious institution. I feel like I am a member of the family at Rowlett. I am also a Graduate student at the Texas Christian University (TCU), Fort Worth, TX.
This course is designed to be the equivalent of the general chemistry course usually taken during the first college year. For some students, this course enables them to undertake, as freshmen, second-year work in the chemistry sequence at their institution or to register for courses in other fields where general chemistry is a prerequisite. For other students, the AP Chemistry course fulfills the laboratory science requirement and frees time for other courses.
I too have taken Advanced Chemistry courses at the high school and collegiate level so I understand what is expected of college chemistry students and will do my best to prepare each of you for the AP Exam in May.
•AP Chemistry will challenge you to the limits of your academic ability. In the past you may have found classes "too easy", and therefore not stimulating you to do your very best. This will not be the case in AP Chemistry.
•AP Chemistry will teach you to think at higher levels.In AP Chemistry, you will be forced to think and apply concepts to new situations, and even derive your own theories from application. This is excellent preparation for the higher levels of thinking required in college.
•Of course, one of the most obvious benefits to this course is that when you take and pass the national AP Chemistry Exam given in May, you will receive college credit for the course when you enroll at most colleges and universities in the United States. This will save you both time and money.
Documents you may need throughout the rest of year!
