We will use GLENCOE Focus on Physical Science Textbook & Workbook Available Online Secret Code: EAB750EA95 Textbook Checkout will be: Sept. 10 (Periods 1,2, and 4) Sept. 11 (Period 3)
When do we cut things up??? NOOOOO – wrong science. This is Physical Science Physics Chemistry Astronomy See class policies
Daily Warm-ups (Can write these in your planner) Classwork: Stuff we do in class Homework: What you don’t finish/any workbook/project work Binder Logs/Checks (End of Chapter/Unit) Quizzes/Tests (will be announced) Projects: Science Fair (Fall)/Science Career (Spring)
Keep a 3-ring binder for your work. Have a section for current binder log and binder material. Have a section for graded work. Keep items in chronological order. Will clear out every quarter. You will see the binder log every day on the screen and website so you can keep track of what to keep and what to turn in!
Learn the difference! -------------------------------------- Late work 50% deduct until end of chapter/unit. 100% deduct after unit. -------------------------------------- Make-up work must be done in a timely manner! One-day absent, one-day make-up rule (length of absence). Excused absences/field trips/shadow days/etc. (See Class Policies) Attendance means something! Those who attend and participate every day tend to do well in class!!
