AP Chemistry Post-Exam Activity: Coordination Compounds & Complex Ions

I published an article about an independent study unit I use with my AP Chemistry class two years ago, . In the time since it was published, I have expanded the unit quite a bit and written some new assignments to go along with it. I use this unit every year as a post AP activity and am very fond of it. I thought some of my readers might enjoy seeing how it has changed and get access to the new assignments I have developed for it.

Coordination Compounds: Independent Study

An independent study on the chemistry topic of coordination compounds and complex ions suitable for AP Chemistry and first-year college chemistry students is presented. This student activity accompanies the article "A guided group inquiry lesson on coordination compounds and complex ions" and is suitable for use by the student to guide their activity.

Complex Ions Lab

This laboratory exercise accompanies the article "". The laboratory serves as part of an extended exercise on the chemistry topic of coordination compounds and complex ions. The entire lesson as described in the article also exposes students to how chemical research is conducted and the conflicts and uncertainties that lead to new theories and discoveries.
