GENERAL CLASSROOM RULES
Respect the speaker. This means who ever is speaking that should be speaking should receive the respect appropriate from everyone. Give the speaker your attention and your respect.
SAFETY - I do not tolerate unsafe actions in class or in the laboratories. You will not be allowed in the lab if you do any unsafe act (horseplay, throwing things, spraying water, or tampering with lab equipment)
Things happen sometimes in the lab, accidents can be prevented. Always report any incidence that occurs.
The grades are based on assignments, labs, tests, and the semester final. Weighting is as follows:
Physics Honors Physics AP Chemistry
Assignments 10% 10% 10%
Labs 25% 25% 25%
Tests 40% 40% 40%
Semester Final 20% 25% 25%
The grading scales for all of my classes are
100 - 90% = A
89.9% - 80% = B
79.9% - 70% = C
69.9% - 60% = D
Below 60% = F
