Galileo Academy of Science and Technology

AP Chemistry

2018 - 2019

Matsumoto

Expectations

 

Respect everyone in class.

Students are responsible for all aspects of the class.

Students may need to remain after school (or lunch) for exams, labs, prelabs, & test / HW review sessions.

Students are strongly urged to take the AP Chemistry exam.

Follow all laboratory safety rules.

course description
 

This class will prepare you for the AP Chemistry exam (on Thursday morning, May 9). This is a demanding course that is equivalent to a first-year college-level course for science majors.  You may earn college credit and UC awards an extra "grade point" for this course. Due to the culumative nature of chemistry, strongly recommend getting chem tutoring as soon as any problem arises and form a study group (password = 94109G).

excellent preparation for college chemistry,  a “gate keeper “ (12, 3, 4) course,  required in STEM majors.

for non-STEM majors, prepare for the rigors of college; (1, 2, 3)

Textbook: Chemistry; Brown et al.

prerequisites:  chemistry (or consent of instructor) & advanced algebra; recommend calculus. 

Grades
  A = 90 - 100 %  exam = 80 %
  B = 80 - 89.9 lab = 10 %
  C = 70 - 79.9 CW / HW = 10 %
  D = 50 - 69.9    
  F =  < 50    
 

the semester grade and grading period grades are based on the above components and cumulative from the beginning of the semester; thus the semester grade may not be the average of your grading period grades.  

upon student request, semester grade adjustment based on College Boad ap chemistry exam score: 5 = A both semesters; 4 = A one semester; 3 = B one semester; get a grade change form from the counseling office, copy of the course syllabus, & your report card before the end of the 2 nd week of school in the subsequent fall semester.

potential spring semester project.

extra credit points: attending Calday earns 3 points; provide proof of attendance, e.g. schedule / program of events and written summary of your activities; must attend one science related event; turn-in on Monday after Calday.

academic integrity (e.g.1; 2; potential consequence; e.g. 1; 2): Cheating on an exam or plagiarism (e.g. lack of appropriate quote marks / citation in a lab assignment; as such, inlcude in-text citation and a reference list at the end of the lab assignment; ex1, ex2) is unacceptable; potential consequences (teacher discretion):  (i) score = 0 (default), (ii) negative score, (iii) lower semester grade by 1 level, and (iv) semester grade = F.

include your name(s) & period on all turned-in material; otherwise, no points.

Based on the benefits of group work in school and the workplace (general; chem) up to two students may work in a group for their prelab and / or lab report and / or HW assignments (excludes test / quiz).

late work (i.e. homework, prelab, or lab report) due to an absence is due on the day of your return to class and write "absent" on it and write the score on any HW assignments; otherwise, no points.

exams:

  • score = 0 for being absent on exam day
  • make-up test / quiz until it is returned to the class
  • retest (after school; up to ~10% reduction in # points per subsequent retest); record highest score
  • twice weekly quiz at the beginning and end of the week, which may cover prior week and current week content, respectively; may use 1- page / 1 side of notes
  • may include past topics & lab topics
  • may use calculator & "green sheets" (ap exam periodic table / equation/ various appendix from textbook) for test / quiz; may not write on these sheets
  • Final exam is cumulative and multiple choice format
  • unadjusted Final exam score (or exam category score) = semester grade up to C (upon student request)

labs

  • turn-in prelab assignments & lab reports at the beginning of class
  • prelab due on the day of the lab; lab report due date on course website
  • lab report score = 0 if no prelab done or misbehave during lab
  • no make-up labs, but can get lab data from a classmate and to avoid plagirism, cite data source & state absence
  • read lab notebook (NB) rubric / scoresheet and lab safety rules; sign & attach to the end of your lab notebook; otherewise, no lab notebook points
  • to prepare your lab report, use Word (including equation editor) & Excel as appropriate
  • lost of prelab / lab report points for improper sequence of content

class work / home work

  • include HW score on HW:  2 points for trying each problem, 1 point for trying part of a problem, 0 point for no attempt on a problem; any multiple-part problem is still worth 2 points. write your HW score at the top of the assignment; otherwise, your score = 0.
  • bring your textbook / additional HW problems to class on the day of HW collection.

Any exceptions to the policy in the syllabus will require a note (stating your name & description of the situation & item number in the grade book) signed by me.  Fill-out survey & signature form.
