We're collecting Box Tops for Education! Have your student bring them to their advisory class.

 

  

General information:

We have 4 units this year: 

1. Earth Systems

2. History of Earth: Geology 

3. Weather, Climate and the Atmosphere

4. Space

Homework: Science does not generally give homework, but students must study and learn the new vocabualry and unit outcomes to master new content. Homework may be necessary to complete classwork that was not finished.

Tests and quizzes may be retaken. We will have three quizes and a final for each unit. Students may retake quizes and tests, but need to complete a retake form, study and review notes and get a parent signature. Retakes must be completed within two weeks of the test/quiz unless otherwise prearranged. Evidence of additional study is required to retake a test.

 

Grading will be weighted as follows:

Daily assignments:10%

Labs and projects: 15%

Quizzes: 25%

Unit Tests: 50%
