The Guide to
Success in Science
In order to be successful in science class this year you must keep up with your homework, projects, and study for your tests. I provide an overview and a study guide for each SOL objective.
I provide for plenty of opportunities to improve your grades. My grades are broken down into percentages as follows;
Tests, Benchmarks, and Projects: 55% of your total grade- This means that you must study hard and complete all projects.
Quizzes, Labs, and classwork assignments: 40% of your total grade- This is a type of daily grade in which you will have many opportunities to prove yourself.
Homework: 5% of your total grade- I will occasionally give written homework assignments, but remember that homework also means to study which will be reflected in test and quiz grades.
Each morning I will have a Bell Ringer Assignment to get you focused for the objective during the class period. When you come in to my class be prepared!
Class Preparation:Have something to write with: I don't care if you use a pencil or pen, but have at least one of these when you enter the room.
Have something to write on: Again, I don't care if you have a notebook, or a binder, but please have your own paper.
Have your planner with you at all times: i will check your planner to make sure you have written your assignments.
