4 What is Chemistry and why study it?
-The science of matter; the branch of the natural sciences dealing with the composition of substances and their properties and reactions - Because understanding chemistry helps you to understand the world around you. Cooking is chemistry. Everything you can touch or taste or smell is a chemical

5 CLASS STRUCTURE: My class is made up 4 main parts:
Classwork/homework 10% Lab Activities 20% Tests/Quizzes 60% Midterm/Final 10% On Labs, ALWAYS ANSWER IN COMPLETE SENTENCES!!! ALWAYS SHOW ALL OF YOUR WORK AND CALCULATIONS!!!!!

6 CLASSWORK: CLASSWORK is worth 20% of your grade
Classwork Includes: bellwork, homework and interactive notes BELLWORK begins daily as soon as you walk through the door and will be on the board as soon as you enter class A normal week will consist of 5 days of Bellwork (20 points a day so 100 points week) that will be due on Friday!!!!! HOMEWORK will be collected the following day after it is assigned. About 3-4 times a week you will be given a worksheet in class The worksheet is intended to be taken seriously and will usually demand a conserable amount of time What you do not finish in class becomes homework!!!!!!!! If you finish the worksheet in class, congratulations, you have no homework!

7 CLASSWORK: (continued)
INTERACTIVE NOTES or, Cornell Notes will taken about 3 days a week Active listening and good note taking is crucial to performing well in my class Cornell Notes are due on the day of the test!!!!! During lecture we will be using doing practice problems on whiteboards, it is your responsibility to purchase a white board marker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

8 LABS, Virtual Labs and Online Activities:
Labs are worth 20% of your grade During labs, you will be working cooperatively with 4-5 other individuals. Every one is expected to do their part. Students will ALWAYS clean up labs if they are to be excused when the bell rings. Dirty lab stations are unacceptable and may result in an unfavorable lab grade. As a group, I encourage all students to assist one another. Cooperative learning is the key to all students learning and succeeding. Labs will be collected either the day or day after they are assigned.

9 LABS Labs are made up of five parts:
Purpose, along with a hypothesis or educated guess Materials: What lab equipment are we using??? Procedure: What process did I take to obtain the desired results or data? Data or Results: What kind of data did I collect??? Temperature? Density? Time? Conclusion Questions: ALWAYS ANSWER CONCLUSION QUESTIONS IN COMPLETE SENTENCES!!!!!!!!!!!

10 TESTS & QUIZZES: TESTS and QUIZZES are worth 50% of your grade
The worst thing you can do in my class is miss a test I will usually give a test later in the week; usually on a Thursday or Friday It is your responsibility to make them up. Failure to do so will greatly impact your grade!!!! Test retakes are on option, please come talk to me if you are interested in retaking a test!!!!!! Tests make ups and retakes can be done online
