This class covers the basic concepts of chemistry as laid out in the NC Essential Standards. We will be moving quickly to cover everything that will be on the NC Final Exam. We will be doing labs at least once a week.
A comprehensive NC Final Exam will count as 25% of the final grade. Summative Assessments 40% Tests Large Projects Formative Assessments 60% Classwork Homework Labs Quizzes Small Projects 100% of 9 weeks grade
In addition to multiple extra in depth assignments, students will be responsible to complete a monthly essay. These essays will be assigned the first week of each month and will be due the last week. These will be done strictly as homework; no class time will be devoted to them. Students will also be required to complete an Honors Research Project. This project will be assigned during the second nine weeks and will count as two test grades. I will give more information on this later.
Homework assignments (Packet, Vocab, and Lab Notebook) all due the day of the test. The day of the test will be mentioned in class multiple times as well as can be found on the Canvas course. I will also try to post the date on my website.
Late work may be turned in at any time until the end of the quarter but will incur a 30 point penalty

AP Chemistry Honors Physics AP Biology AP Environmental Forensic Science
Second level of Chemistry that is equivalent to the first two Chemistry classes in college. Full year course Appropriate score (usually a 4 or 5 depending on your college) on AP test could result in 8 college credits Even if that score is not met students will do much better in the college class as they have already seen and worked with the material once.
