Demo Version of AP Chemistry App
It is now possible to open a Demo version of my AP Chemistry Quiz & Cards App.
You need to be using an iPhone or iPad iOS 14.0 or above.
If on a Desktop,simply point the camera of your device at the AppClip code to start.
If browsing on your phone, press and hold on the Code and you will be given option to Open Demo.
The Demo version is limited to 10 Mb, so restricted to only one Lesson of Notes, 5 Cards and about 10 MC Questions.
It automatically deletes from your device after a period of inactivity. There will be the option to download full version of the App offered.

Wherever possible, I will keep a copy of the relevant document on this website but you should use the 'Web Link' as your reference. I will also provide a link to the core 'Web Site' to enable you to investigate further to help decide on Validity & Reliability.
The first Video demonstrates a simple 'kitchen' experiment devised by the RSC for the 2013 Global Experiment. It could be 'upgraded' by using more accurate Lab equipment and would be an interesting Planning challenge. The second Video is an excellent reminder of how to set up and perform a Titration.
Other Useful Documents
Researching Chemistry was introduced as part of the Revised Higher a few years ago, though only as an Internal Assessment. A number of the guides produced by LTS and SSERC are still valid but may be 'out of date' in terms of latest SQA regulations. Refer always to the latest Candidate Guides.
The SSERC Vitamin C document is 'work in progress' and has sections that refer to Biofuels (one of the other options for Researching Chemistry) and even refers to Physics (which I believe is a minor branch of Science sometimes taught in some Scottish Schools). However, much of the information is still very useful and I will update the document as and when possible.

New App Launched Jan 2022
I have launched my new App. It includes a full set of AP Chemistry Notes as well as 120+ FlashCards with AP level questions, tips and advice. In addition, there are 600+ MC Questions arranged by AP Unit.
For copyright reasons, none of the questions can come from actual AP Exams but they have been carefully chosen and written to match the content and level of AP Chemistry.
They would be equally suitable for A-Level, IB , AdvH , OCR etc. but would not cover all the content of these courses.
This will be Physical & Inorganic Chemistry with very little Organic.
