Wilson 14e Chapters for Redesign

I have done my best to correlate the chapters in the Wilson text (14th edition) to the units in the course and exam redesign. These are the chapters that we will read each unit. It's messy, and it's also a work in progress. This is subject to change as is needed.

Chapter 20 does not neatly fit in to any of the units, but acts as something of an overall summary.

(L) means that this chapter will be covered in lecture rather than in reading assignments.

Week assignments are based on a 16 week study period leading up to the AP Exam.
