    Chemistry 1 Course Syllabus

    Mr. Moles

    Contact information Seminar room 121 phone extension 933-7874

    th Plan: 4 block in Rm 121


     Course Information

1.) Textbook Prentice Hall Chemistry

    2.) Needed supplies for class &

    i. Scientific calculator (must have scientific notation and log capabilities!)

    ii. A binder to keep daily materials in, notebook, and a flash drive comes in handy.

    3.) Description of the course Students study the interaction between matter and energy. These

    interactions result in the chemical reactions that cause the composition of matter to change. Extensive

    laboratory experiences will involve the student in the process of science by applying concepts in concrete

    situations solving scientific problems, improving scientific literacy, and developing an understanding of

    important chemistry related concepts.

    4.) Grading scale Students are evaluated through their performance on quizzes, daily homework and

    labs, and exams

    Grades are determined by Percentages that indicate Grading scale

     85% categories below + 15% Final Exam A = 89.5% & up

    45 % tests & projects B = 79.5-89.4%

    20% labs C = 69.5-79.4%

    20% homework D = 59.5-69.4%

    15% quizzes F = 59.4 & below

    5.) Late Workusually you will lose 20% of the graded credit per day late. Assignments that are 1-3

    weeks late will receive at most ? credit and assignment that are over 3 weeks past due or after

    completion of a unit will result in ZERO CREDIT.

    6.) Absences Make up work can be obtained in room 121 during class or seminar.

    Excused Absence Work will need to be made up by the following week, unless other arrangements have been made. If no attempt is made to get work in by the allotted time the above rules for late work will apply! (can have a total of 9 per semester to receive credit, excluding school activities.)

    Unexcused No credit will be given!! But you will be expected to do work to catch up. (can have a total of 5 per semester to receive credit) absence ndrdththTardy Policy Verbal warning for 2, 20 minutes detention for 3, Saturday school for 4, ISS for 5 &


    7.) Classroom behavior While in Chemistry, you will be asked to follow class rules to ensure the safety

    of all, as well as to show respect to your fellow classmates. To put it briefly,

    Cell phone will be taken away & detention or office referral given No Cell phones

    Use of Inappropriate language 30 min Detention (or alternative) or office referral

    Class or teacher disruptions 1) warning, 2) removal from class, 3) office referral

    Inappropriate clothing Office referral

    Horseplay & inappropriate use of chemicals 1) warning, 2) removal from class (depending on circumstances)
