    TOPIC

     

    INFORMATION

     

    Overview

     

    Biology is the area of science that seeks to understand the living world.  Major units to be covered include ecology, biochemistry, cellular organization, genetics, and classification of life.

     

     

    Materials

     

    The following materials should be brought to class each and every day:

    • One  3-ring binder with dividers and paper
    • 1 subject notebook, 70 pages, college ruled
    • Pencils
    • Pens (blue or black ink)
    • Agenda
    • Index cards (optional)
    • Colored pencils (optional)
    • Box of tissues (optional)

     

     

    Grading

     

    The grading system is a point system, which is based on points earned for tests, quizzes, homework, labs,  and projects. Research Biology will also have research assignments.

     

     

    Notebook Requirements

     

    It is recommended that you divide your binder chronologically or as Units are taught.  There should be a section for class information, then by the Chapter(this will change every 9 weeks) First nine week chapters: 1, 18, 306 (all ecology chapters will be the same section)

     

     

    Homework

     

    Homework assignments will be posted on the board every day.  It is expected that you will record homework assignments in your agenda every day.

     

     

    Homework cont…

     

    Projects, classwork & homework assignments work submitted late will be subject to a reduction in grade.  Work is not accepted after the test on a particular subject!!!

     

    Make-Up Work

     

    If you are absent, you should see me on the day of your return, either before school or after school to find out what notes, assignments, or labs were missed and to arrange a make-up time if necessary.  It is your responsibility to find out what was missed. Ii is best to not wait until Titan Time.

     

     

    Lab Conditions

     

    Since our class is held in a science lab, there is no eating or drinking permitted (including gum and candy).  You may only keep a sealed water bottle at your desk.

     

     

    Behavior

     

     

    • Arrive to class on time, sit down, and begin the bellringer activity.
    • Bring all materials to class every day- binder, textbook, agenda, pencil, and pen.
    • Respect your classmates, teachers, and yourself.
    • Work to your full potential.

     

     

    Extra Help

     

    I am often available for help.  I can meet with you before school or stay after school almost every day if you just ask me ahead of time.  I can also work with you during Titan Time.

    e-mail at least once per day.  To reach me at school by telephone, please call the Main Office at (571) 434-4400.
