3 Ring Binder and Spiral Notebooks for 2nd Semester
3 Ring Binder: Remove all work and assignments from 1st semester except your handouts and the Table of Contents for this section. Keep your dividers. Remove grade sheet or evaluation sheet. Place new assignments from 2nd semester in appropriate sections in chronological order. Each section needs its own Table of Contents as specified in the syllabus.
Spiral Notebook: Keep your spiral notebook for notes and reading logs from 1st semester. Continue with it during 2nd semester. Add a 2nd spiral notebook when needed. AP Bio students need to keep the laboratory spiral notebook and continue this into 2nd semester as well.
Individual or small group tutoring is available for all chemistry students every Tuesday afternoon from 3:00-3:45 pm in room M-104, or by appointment during B lunch from 12:15 to 12:40 pm on other days. Please note that this is a change from the times listed in the syllabus because I am now teaching a "0" period before the normal school day begins. In the event that I have a parent or teacher meeting scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, tutoring will be rescheduled to Wednesday or Thursday after school.
Reading for UNDERSTANDING and SUCCESS!!!
All classes are assigned weekly reading in their textbook, usually one or more chapters per week. READ, READ, and RE-READ for SUCCESS!!!! See the homework section of this site for specific chapter assignments. As they read, sudents should focus on the main objectives or concepts specified in each chapter and/or each section. Pay special attention to section headings, bold faced terms, diagrams, and tables that help illustrate and reinforce these concepts. Students may want to take their own notes on each section or quiz themselves after reading each section. Review questions are often available at the end of each section or chapter.
Welcome to Chemistry at Yucaipa High School. This is our school fusion class website. You will want to visit it frequently for important announcements including due dates for assignments, quizzes, tests, and homework. Check the calendar to see what we will be doing each day or week. Copies of class "computer notes" for each major topic are available in case you want to review notes or make up notes you may have missed. I hope you are looking forward to an exciting and challenging year as we investigate the world of matter, energy, and its interactions. Kaboom!!!
