Course expectations

 

Respect everyone in class.

Students are responsible for ALL aspects of the course.

Follow all laboratory safety instructions.

Course description 

 

This course satisfies the SFUSD high school graduation requirement and its focus will be becoming a "life-long lerarner".

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:  World of Chemistry. Zumdahl et al.

additional resources:

videos: Khan Academy & Sophia

ebooks: chemwiki @ UCDavis & CK12 chem

prerequisite:  algebra I

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. Student responsibility to monitor the online gradebook.

Class policies 

 

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.

include your name(s) & period on all turned-in 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

  • score = 0 for being absent on day of quiz / test
  • weekly quiz on Monday (Tuesday if Monday = holiday)
  • may use your CW, HW, reading / class notes, calculator, chemistry periodic table, and any handouts with numercial values of various constants.
  • test correction; do corrections on another sheet of paper / attach in front of test; due before school starts on the next school day; get half of the points back.
  • may include recent lab and / or integrate prior related chemistry content. retest at teacher discretion.
  • Final exam is cumulative & multiple choice format

class work / homework

  • include HW score on HW problems:  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. 
  • CW / HW reading / video notes score: 4 points
  • CW will be collected at the end of the period and usually involves group work
  • in-class make-up CW / HW at teacher discretion

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
  • if you're absent, get lab data from a classmate
  • read lab notebook rubric / scoresheet and lab safety rules; sign & attach to your lab notebook
  • to prepare your lab report, use Word (including equation editor) & Excel as appropriate, i.e. no handwritten lab report will be accepted
  • lost of prelab / lab report points for improper sequence of content

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.
