    Grading: Homework, Labs, and Quizzes
    • See class handout for individual class policies.  
    • Value Varying depending on the amount of work (10-100 pts)
    • A review sheet/outline/concept map will be assigned for each chapter. This should be completed at least one day prior to the chapter test. 
    • All work is to be compiled in an organized fashion. (probably a 3-ring binder) (40 points per quarter)
    • There are suggested homework problems to key on within the chapter.  These problems are NOT due, but if you do them, you should include in your organized work.  
    • Labs will generally be due two days after the completion of the lab unless otherwise noted.
    • Quizzes may be announced or unannounced.
    • A notebook/participation/deportment grade may be given.
     
    Tests:
    • Will generally be announced one week in advance.
    • Point totals again vary from chapter to chapter (40-100 pts)
    • Multiple choice, essay, true and false, short answer, and other formats are used.
    • Sample ACT and AP Test questions, possible participation in the ACS Chemistry Olympiad… will also be tools used.
    • Remediation will consist of students...
    • Showing completion of the unit pretest
    • Completing designated book problems and all homework
    • Meeting with the instructor within a week of the test to be remediated.
    • Completion of the re-test within a week’s time or by an agreed upon date.
     
    Late Work and Absences:
    • Missed papers may be picked up in the stand in front of the room
    • Late work is not acceptable.
    • Tests/Quizzes/Labs/homework should be made up within the number of days equal to your absence. It is your responsibility to make arrangements to make up this work. Absences are sometimes very difficult to make up.
    • Cheating: Will not be tolerated and will result in an F for the quarter grade.
