Class Objectives: The primary objective of this class is to
help students obtain that knowledge and those skills that give them the kind of foundation they need for career success.
Students will be graded based on their ability to produce products demonstrating their ability to function as young chemists.
Most of these skills are those that most employers value and that will help them to be successful in the college classroom.
Among these grades will be those for skills, tests, classroom behaviors, and those communication products that reflect their
ability to perform as young chemists.
Homework: One of the most often heard complaints heard
from employers and college professors is that students cannot study and then apply that knowledge. To help my students
overcome this shortcoming they are expected to study and apply assigned portions of the text almost every day. A list
of those assignments is listed below. Students will be given a short quiz every day to determine how well they have taught
themselves knowledge and skills from the text. Students are taught study skills in class. It is
assumed that those students who do poorly on those quizzes lack good study skills and those students will be asked to come
in for remedial help outside of normal school hours. Students with certain learning disabilities will be given
alternative assignments as needed.
Labs: Safety is the primary concern in a chemistry lab. Students who fail to behave
in a safe manner, or who fail to come to lab prepared to be safe, will not be allowed to do lab work. Students will
do labs in a manner that will build skills that will be valuable in a technical career. Students will be assigned to
do preparatory work before labs. Students who come to class having not done the preparatory work will not be allowed
to work in the lab. All students and parents or guardians must sign a safety contract before a student can work in the
lab. When possible, a makeup lab will be scheduled for after school hours. Students will learn to write
lab reports in a style that is valued in college and the workplace.
