The SIX BIG IDEAS OF THE AP EXAM by TOPIC does not belong in this column, but here they are:

Big Idea 1: ATOMS- The chemical elements are fundamental building materials of
matter, and all matter can be understood in terms of arrangements of 
atoms. These atoms retain their identity in chemical reactions.                                                                                                                                                      Big Idea 2: PROPERTIES OF MATTER- Chemical and physical properties of materials can be explained by the structure and the arrangement of atoms, ions, or molecules and
 the forces between them.                      Big Idea 3: CHEMICAL REACTIONS- Changes in matter involve the rearrangement and/or reorganization of atoms and/or the transfer of electrons.                                                                                                      Big Idea 4: KINETICS- Rates of chemical reactions are determined by details of the
molecular collisions.    Big Idea 5: THERMODYNAMICS- The laws of thermodynamics describe the essential role of energy
 and explain and predict the direction of changes in matter.                                                                                  Big Idea 6: EQUILIBRIUM- Any bond or intermolecular attraction that can be formed can be broken. These two processes are in a dynamic competition, sensitive to 
initial conditions and external perturbations.
