Food Science 12 The course is divided into four units: 1.Unit 1: Food Constituents– 25% (8 Outcomes) 2.Unit 2: Preservation Factors– 35% (10 Outcomes) 3.Unit 3: Food Quality and Commodities– 15% (6 Outcomes) 4.Unit 4: Food Packaging – 5% (3 Outcomes) 5.Exam: 20% *** Textbooks : Students will be issued textbooks. Each student is responsible for bringing their textbook to class and returning it at the end of the semester. In this course there is a significant focus on hands-on-activities and labs. It is very important that students attend classes in order to be prepared for and understand the material covered in the labs and hands on activities. Students who have unexcused absences will not be permitted to participate in labs. Written assignments will be available for students who are not present on the day of the lab or who were not present for the pre-lab work (have unexcused absences). There will be items that may need to completed for homework including studying for tests and completing any assignments. **Copies of class notes and handouts will be available in electronic format on my wiki site.
Assignment Policy: If an assignment is passed in on or before the due date it will be marked and eligible for re-submission. Assignments not passed in on the due date are not eligible for re- submission and must be passed in with a late slip on the due date agreed upon by the teacher and student. When a due date is missed it is the student’s responsibly to fill out a late slip and have the teacher sign it. Assignments that do not include the late slip will not be marked. Assignments that do not meet the second due date will receive a mark of zero. Assignments that have been plagiarized or are not properly cited will receive a mark of zero. The student will have the opportunity to resubmit their assignment. If the assignment is not resubmitted the mark of zero will be kept. This policy is in place to encourage students to read feedback, reflect on their work, and take opportunities to revise and resubmit. I have read and understand the assignment policy. ________________________________ _____________________________________ Student Signature Parent/ Guardian Signature Late Assignment Slip Name: ________________________________ Assignment:_________________________ Reason for missing original deadline: ______________________________________________________ This assignment will be handed in on __________________________ (date), or I will receive a zero for the assignment.
