At a Glance:

This semester, students will be learning about life processes, cells and organelles, photosynthesis, cell respiration, DNA, mitosis, evolution, energy, ecology, and classification.

Students are expected to keep a 3" binder with a section for science and bring it to class each day along with their life science textbook and writing supplies.

There are 7 unit tests, and 2 comprehensive exams this semester.

We will use the following grading scale:

Labs / Projects 40%

Tests / Quizzes 35%

Homework / Classwork 25%

Please contact me with any questions or concerns throughout the semester!
