How to get in the kitchen

  • The kitchen is your work zone. Carve out an exact amount of time and a comfortable setting.

  • Outline a specific objective that you would like to accomplish during your practice

  • Don’t say “I’m going to study”.

  • Instead say “I will be able to calculate ΔS from ΔH and I will be able to get 8 out of 10 problems correct”

Thought for food

  • This AP class won’t be like your others. Everything we do will be through the lens of a chef.

  • You will learn about what’s really in your food, why you love it, how we grow it, make it, pack it, store it. Learn why onions make us cry, how does lime “cook” food, how do induction cookers work, is it ok to irradiate food, how do microwaves work, and so much more
