The 2014-2015 school year is here and I have a feeling it is going to be the best year yet! You will find a pdf of my course syllabus below. I will go over this with students in detail during class. Please review this syllabus with your child and sign and return the acknowledgment form. You will also find a pdf of my rubric for scoring student participation grades. These grades are given weekly and are in line with my class expectations.
Please read below for important information that will help you be successful in science class.

Independent Science Project: 2014-2015
Science Fair....Question? Where to start? Great ideas are located in news articles. Look below for some interesting topics. Read and find something that interests you that could be formed into a controlled experiment (that you can do). Remember it must have a real application of how to help mankind - not just a cool experiment (we do those in class:). Students will all be requiredto complete a science fair project appropriate for their grade level if they are in an Advanced Science course. However, they are allowed to pick a path or depending on the topic their teacher will select their path GREEN or GOLD. GREEN path will complete their investigation with a power-point and present to their teacher. GOLD path will complete their investigation with a notebook, tri-board, and present to judges from the community. The GOLD path will require more comittment from the students, but will also provide many great rewards. Please view the checklist/due date PDF below for both paths.
