Honor's Physical Science

 

Fall 2017

               

Parents and Students-

Students will receive points for a wide variety of assignments and assessments. These will include homework, quizzes, labs, projects, tests and their final exam.  Additionally, student participation and effort may be a part of your overall grade. 

 As a member of the class there are certain expectations and responsibilities for each person.  The expectations include but are not limited to: coming to class prepared, having appropriate materials, taking notes, not disrupting the class, answering/asking questions and working cooperatively in lab groups and turning in all assignments.

Classroom Expectations

  1. Come to class on time; Students should be in their assigned seat when the bell rings prepared to participate.
  2. Respect your own space and everyone else’s space and things.

     This could include such things as:
