Matsumoto

Course expectations

 

Respect everyone in class.

Students are responsible for ALL aspects of the course.

Follow all laboratory safety instructions.

Course description 

 

The course satisfies the SFUSD high school graduation requirement and should meet the UC admission requirements. The 2019 - 2020 school year is the first year of the implementation of this NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) chemistry course in the school district.

Textbook:  SFUSD NGSS chemistry textbook; online access

additional resources:

Textbook:  World of Chemistry. Zumdahl et al.

videos: Khan Academy & Sophia

ebooks: chemwiki @ UCDavis & CK12 chem

Grades

  A = 90 - 100 % exams = 25 %
  B = 80 - 89 class work / HW = 50
  C = 70 - 79 lab = 25
  D = 40 50 - 69    
  F = < 50 40    
 

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

Class policies 

 

print your name and all group members' names with everyone's group role next to their name on all assignments; otherwise, no points.

all asignments will be followed by CW (or "warm-up / do now" promptly at the beginning of class) on its due date, where share contents (will provide ~ 5 - 15 minutes), update your science NB content; turn-in science NB on a regular basis (usually at the end of the period) and will randomly select one group member's science NB based on group member's role for a score for everyone in the group.

test / quiz

  • may use your science notebook, calculator, chemistry periodic table, and any handouts with numercial values of various constants.
  • may include lab / integrate prior related chemistry content.
  • Final exam is cumulative

class work / homework assignments

  • CW / HW reading notes score is out of 4 points / assignment
  • in general, 2 points / question or problem for a "full" attempt ,while one point for a partial attempt and no points for no attempt. multiple part question or problem is still up to 2 points.

lab assignments

prelab assignments to be written in your science notebook. use the below format / content (unless explicitly stated otherwise)

    • purpose of laboratory investigation
    • list of material / equipment in the lab
    • experimental protocol; e.g. flow chart; ex1; ex2; you will not have access to your textbook during the lab

    lab reports: use Word (or equilvalent) and as appropropriate, use Excel (or equivalent)

    record your laboratory observations / data in your science notebook.

Any exceptions to the policy in the syllabus will require a note (stating your name & description of the situation) signed by me. 

Fill-out survey & signature form.

plan to continue using this course website to give you information about assignments / test, but use google classroom to collect your work; e.g. test & HW

plan to make screencasts for "class notes"

3/28/20

expect "online school / class" begins on Mon, Apr 13 (subject to change); will update course website, when it becomes "official"; expect to use google classroom (link provides sign in information) during this time; if you haven't sign into google classroom, do so before "online class" begins. sorry for any confusion / uncertainty.

3/25/20

school closure extended until May 1; will update course website, when get more information and decide how to proceed

3/18/20:

you may turn in your HW using google classroom, but as the school district states that teachers can not require students to work during the school closure, you can turn in your HW upon your return to school (if it opens) -- this policy is subject to change - sorry for any confusion.

announcement:

henceforth, in lieu of random science NB collection, decide on mutually agreed upon division of work among group members, where students may work alone or as a group, then write that information on a cover sheet.

sequentially attach student work with student name to cover sheet; staple together - turn in assignment.

support each other.

your score = score on your assigned part, not your classmates work.

nonetheless, you are responsible for all content in the assignment and put all content in your science NB ,which can be used during a test.
