Biology

Biology is the study of life and living organisms. Together, we are going to be scientists in this class. This year we are going to explore different topics of biology through reading, laboratory activities, and online activities. A good scientist should always be prepared to learn and be engaged in classroom discussions.

Classwork
There is classwork for every class.
You are expected to complete your classwork during class time for a completion grade. 
If you need extra time, please let me know.
If you are absent, it is your responsibility to complete the classwork ASAP (or else it will be a zero).
 
Homework
I will post homework every Sunday night but won't be due until Friday midnight.
Classwork and notes will help you on your homework.
Homework will be graded for accuracy or completion.
One point will be taken off for each day late. 50% is the lowest grade you can get on a late homework.
Quizzes and tests will be given throughout the unit. Please study for them!
If needed, you will have a chance to corrections for a higher grade.
If you are absent, you will have a chance to do a make-up quiz.
If you don't take them by the end of the term, you will have a zero for that quiz/test.
You will have lab reports after every lab activity we do in class. 
You will sometimes get a project, too.
You will get one week to complete this.
