2 Index Cards PLEASE PRINT NEATLY 1. Name you go by. 2. Parents/guardians name. 3. School you came from 4. Tell me one interesting thing about you, that I would only know if you told me.

3 Respond to the following in at least 3 sentences. What do you think it means? How does this convey my expectations of you in this course? “No one can make a real masterpiece of life until he/she sees something indefinitely greater in his/her vocation other than bread, butter, and shelter.”

4 Integrated Science This course is designed to allow you to apply scientific principles to practical solutions. You will be given the opportunity to gain understanding of how the world around you works. Major topics covered: Scientific Inquiry and Nuclear Forces Scientific Inquiry and Nuclear Forces Waves and Energy Transfer Waves and Energy Transfer Astronomy Astronomy Ecology Ecology

5 Class Materials:  3 ring binder (1 ½ inches or larger)  A MUST!  Loose notebook paper  Blue or black pen & several pencils  Highlighters  Scientific calculator (YOU MUST HAVE A CALCULATOR!)  Index cards  Colored Pencils  Recommended- An agenda to write down assignments

6 Binders  You will be required to keep a binder to hold all notes handouts, tests, quizzes, labs and bell work.  Your binder will be separated into 4 sections (notes, formative assessments, summative assessments, and bell work.)  Each section of your binder will contain an assignment sheet, which I will provide, to keep all your papers organized.  I only give out handouts once!  Your binder will be graded periodically throughout the semester by binder quizzes.  You will need your binder in class EVERYDAY!  If you do not have your binder when it is graded you will receive a 0 on that binder grade…no late binders accepted!  Your binder will be collected and graded at the end of the semester, so don’t lose it! No binder = No grade!

7 Grading System  You will be graded on a point system (classwork, homework, labs, quizzes & tests)  Formative Assessments~quizzes, classwork & homework~40%  Summative Assessments~labs & tests~60%  The Final Exam is 20% of Final Grade. Each Marking period is worth 40%, making up 80% of final grade.

8 Grading Scale = A = C = A = C = A = C = A = C = A = C = B = D = B = D = B = D = B- 70 = D 69 or below = F 69 or below = F

9 Attendance Policy: We are preparing you for the workforce therefore…  you are expected to be in class & on time everyday!  block scheduling ~ everyday missed is counted as 2 days  written documentation required upon returning to school after an absence is to be given to Mrs. Bailock in the high school office within three days of your absence.  A letter to parents/guardians will be sent at ten (10) and fifteen (15) cumulative daily absences per semester.

10 Make-up Work  you are required to make up work within the amount of days absent (Example – 1 missed day = 1 day to make up work)  If you miss a test, quiz or lab you are responsible for scheduling a time to make it up within the number of days absent  If a student is absent it is the student’s responsibility to get the work missed from their study buddy that was assigned in the beginning of the year. The study buddy collects all papers and takes notes for their buddy. They should also look at the class website for information they missed.  Any missed work due to cutting class or failure to make up work will result in a grade of O for each assignment missed!

11 Always be…  prompt- 3 lates = detention  prepared- physically and mentally (everyone has bad days so…)  polite & respectful
