Course Grading and Evaluation
Your grades will be based on a variety of tests, quizzes, projects and assignments. Your lab notebook will be a key factor in the final grade. The grading will be weighted as follows:

Formal 70%

Informal 30%

This course consists of a number of projects and activities. Your degree of effort and involvement, regardless of whether the assignment is individual or group, will be reflected in your grade.
Attendance for this class is mandatory. If you are absent you will be allowed 5 school days from the day you return to turn in any assignments that have been missed. An area will be designated in the classroom for any material handed out in your absence and it will be your responsibility to check for the material upon your return.
The tardy policy will strictly follow the school policy. If you should arrive late go directly to the “tardy log”, sign in and leave your pass on the table next to the log. Your reason for tardiness should be entered on the log and should be specific… not simply, “I was late”.
