AP Bridge Courses

Biology AP Bridge

Monday, June 8 - Friday, July 24
Online
Tuition: $100
Open to Carondelet students by invitation only from individual student counselors and Science Department chair.

The Biology Bridge course is a study of life and covers a broad spectrum of topics including the structure and function of cells, biochemistry, genetics, evolution, and the interrelationships between all living things. The survey course builds upon the physics and chemistry principles covered in earlier science classes and will provide a foundation of understanding to enable success in AP Biology. Students must be prepared to engage with material independently and be eager to interact with classmates and faculty in a virtual environment.

The student will access the class on Schoology and complete 4 units of study. Each unit consists of video lessons for background and 2 activities. Four tests will be administered to assess progress through the curriculum. Completion of online assessments must average to 80% for students to move to AP Biology when school starts in August. If students know they are not going to be able to reach that level of mastery, they should request a course transfer to Biology Honors before August 1, 2020 in order to earn a spot in Honors.

Classes are scheduled to run from June 8 - July 24 but if a student wants to begin earlier please reach out to Mr. Buckles.

Prerequisites: Completion of Conceptual Physics and Chemistry and approval of Department Chair.
Textbook: CK-12 Biology Advanced Concepts

→ Registration available in email sent to select students

Chemistry AP Bridge

Monday, June 8 - Friday, July 24
Online
Tuition: $100
Open to Carondelet students by invitation only from individual student counselors and Science Department chair.

Topics for this class include atomic structure, electron arrangement in atoms, properties of gases, liquids and solids, stoichiometry, and acids and bases. This survey course builds upon the physics principles covered in earlier science classes and will provide a foundation of understanding to enable success in AP Chemistry. Students must be prepared to engage with material independently and be eager to interact with classmates and faculty in a virtual environment. Computer simulations are used to obtain, organize and analyze data. Conclusions are developed using both quantitative and qualitative information.

Prerequisites: Completion of Conceptual Physics and approval of Department Chair.
Textbook: recommended as a resource, CK 12: Chemistry for High School

Students will self-study using the Coursera course: Chemistry, offered by the University of Kentucky. Registration is free. Students will complete Weeks 1 through 5 of the content. A Carondelet faculty member will supervise discussion boards to answer questions posted to the weekly units via Schoology. Four tests will be administered online to assess progress through the curriculum. Completion of assessments must average to 80% for students to move to AP Chemistry when school starts in August. If students know they are not going to be able to reach that level of mastery, they should request a course transfer to Chemistry Honors before August 1, 2020 in order to earn a spot in Honors.

Classes are scheduled to run from June 8 - July 24 but if a student wants to begin earlier please reach out to Mr. Buckles.
