    ANNOUNCEMENT: [08/23] "Week 3"!
    Week 3 begins tomorrow covering Unit 5 (Kinetics) and Unit 6 (Thermodynamics)! Material from Unit 6 will be delayed until Tuesday, but if you have additional time, take a look at the Kahoot Quiz covering Units 1-4! If requests are received, we do plan to reschedule the quizzing session for another time.
     
    [08/20] Kahoot (Units 1-4) Live Quizzing Session
     
    This Friday at 6PM EST Thomas and I will be hosting a Kahoot quiz session with several questions (nearly 40) spanning Units 1-4. Access the Kahoot game through this link: https://create.kahoot.it/details/jumpstart-ap-chemistry-unit-1-4/3fe63856-5d7d-43ce-a32d-cc162710bb76
    We'll also be providing explanations for problems through the FL Helyx Discord Voice Channel. If you are not already a member of the FL Helyx Discord, please submit an application through this link as soon as possible: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf5IcdgflqNW8yeMX5TjJdQX3rItJsUQTFfSp4MdYF6yzZXuw/viewform If you're unable to make the session, don't worry! The Kahoot will be made public for anyone who would like to practice. See you there!
     
    [08/17] Live Quizzing Session THIS Friday (08/21)
    As this week is an "extension week", it seems perfect for a live quiz review session! Stay tuned for more details on this event (covering material from Week 1 and 2)! We understand that time zone and scheduling conflicts might make it difficult to attend, but don't worry, the quiz link (Kahoot) will be posted after the live quizzing event. If you have any input on what time (EST) you would like to have the event, feel free to DM or email me.
     
    [08/17] Week 1 & 2 Extension
    Hi all! Normally this would be the start of Week 3, but after discussing with the rest of the Jumpstart Team, we have decided that the LMS's many technical issues, resulting in course material retrieval and upload delays, have earned an additional week for any students who need to catch up and any staff members who need to further troubleshoot the platform. So, week 3 for all Jumpstart Courses officially begins next week! Thank you for your patience, feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. 

    [08/10] Week 2: Units 3 & 4

    We are entering Week 2 of Jumpstart AP Chemistry! This week we will be covering Units 3 and 4 of the AP Chemistry Curriculum. Thomas and I have redesigned the course and moving forward content will be presented primarily through in-text lessons while examples and short reviews will be done through video. Online practice sets will still be available, but due to technical issues with the quizzes in Unit 1, we are no longer using the LMS's quiz function. If you're experiencing any formatting issues with in-text lessons, please download the .PDF attached to each in-text lesson. The three videos I had been trying to upload ( "3.1", "4.1-4.2 & 4.5", and "4.9") are delayed due to technical issues, but should be available later today; I've fully updated the in-text lessons and online practice sets and Thomas has uploaded his videos though. Apologies for any inconvenience! Units 5 and 6 will begin next week. Good luck and try to have some fun :D

    [08/06] Regarding Quizzes

    Hi all! Hope you and yours are well. We have received a few reports that quizzes in Unit 1 mark incorrect answers, report false scores, etc. These technical issues arise from the LMS and are still being resolved. If you would like to confirm anything about the quiz questions (that the "wonky" grading may have made unclear), feel free to reach out to either instructor. For Unit 2, we have eliminated the use of quizzes. 

    [08/03] Welcome to Week 1 of Helyx Florida's AP Chemistry Jumpstart Program!

    Taught by peers and led by peers! As of 8:00AM EST, Units 1 and 2 have been updated with all the most recent course curricula. In this first week, we will be covering the foundations of AP Chemistry, but remember, this should NOT be your exclusive source of information; this is an accelerated zero-academic-credit 4-week course. If you have an questions or concerns any time during the program, feel free to contact myself (Julianna) or Thomas (Discord, office hours, or email information on the course syllabus); we will respond within 48 hours of your inquiry. Good luck! (P.S. during the week, you may see updates in the Unit 3 and Unit 4 sections. These units will not be fully updated until 8:00AM EST August 10, 2020)
