This year, for student/faculty safety, all of our Summer at Springs courses will be conducted online via Zoom. Guided by our talented Indian Springs faculty, courses will consist of a combination of synchronous and asynchronous work, and many will be aimed at readiness for the 2020–21 school year.
The purpose of this course is to provide students with a strong background in chemistry and biochemistry in preparation for AP Biology. There will be a review of chemical bonding, reactions, and equilibrium. The application of the properties of water in living systems will be explored. Students will then investigate the molecular structure of organic molecules and apply the fundamental principles of biochemistry to the study of macromolecules.
