  • 2015 AP Chem Workshops

    My ONLINE AP Chemistry Workshops will be offered again in the summer of 2015. There will be NO face-to-face workshop in the summer of 2015.

    The online version of the workshop was delivered twice in 2014 (and for many years previously, face-to-face), and the remote option proved very popular. The course has been accredited by the School Improvement Division of the Georgia Dept. of Education, and attracts 2 PLU’s (Course ID: BA6D02-A8E6).

    I have already learned so much and I have just finished module 4.” – KM, August 2014.
