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. While there are criticisms of NGSS (e.g. 1), the course should meet the UC admission requirements. Due to the culumative nature of chemistry, strongly recommend forming a study group (password = 94109G) and get chem tutoring as soon as any problem arises. Textbook: SFUSD NGSS chemistry textbook 
Grades
A =  90  100 %  exams =  30 %  
B =  80  89  class work / HW =  50  
C =  70  79  lab =  20  
D =  50  69  
F =  < 50 
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
extra credit points: attending Calday earns include your name(s) & period on all turnedin material; otherwise, no points. late work 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. Based on the benefits of group work, up to three students may work in a group for classwork, homework, and lab assignments, which shall be randomly assigned by the teacher each grading period. test / quiz
class work / homework
labs
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. Fillout survey & signature form.
