Look down at element number 79 and you will see this:
The chemical symbol Au stands for the element GOLD. Since you are a part of the 2014-2015 AP Chemistry class at GOLDer
College Prep, you will henceforth be known as the Au ers (Golders) Clever, right?!?!
So what does it mean to be an Au er?
You are a part of a team that is COMMITTED to learning and mastering the material typically presented in a first year
