Textbook: Chemistry, by Zumdahl, 9th ed., Cengage, 2014. ISBN-13 978-1-133-61110-3.
Course Description: This first-year chemistry course provides an introduction to many chemistry concepts including the structure of matter, chemical bonding, chemical reactions, equilibrium, acids and bases, and electrochemistry just to name a few. To cover this broad range of topics, the Pre-AP course moves at a faster pace than a regular Chemistry class. In addition to class work, students will conduct laboratory exercises and do research when necessary.
Laboratory Notebook (bound, numbered, and carbon copied)
Scientific Calculator (must have LOG key)
No. 2 lead pencil
Pen (black or blue ink only)
Goggles - must be splash-proof and not have any open holes.
Grades:Grades will be based on percentages:
Grading scale: 90-100% A, 80-89% B, 70-79% C, 60-69% D, 0-59% F
Classroom Rules: (or the top 10 ways to make Mrs. Nunnelee happy)
- Be prepared! Bring materials to class. You should bring your text daily, along with your calculator and materials to take notes.
- If you are going to be/have been absent, it is YOUR responsibility to see me about a make-up assignment. Please do this at the end of the class period. For homework and quizzes, you have as many days to turn in the assignment as you were absent. For tests and labs, there may be outside class time required to make-up missed activities. Extended absences (over 1 week) will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
- Do your homework - the only way to succeed is to practice! Class time is for working, not playing. Chemistry assignments come first in this classroom. Wasting time (playing cards, etc.) will not be tolerated.
- Show respect. Be kind and considerate towards others. This includes not talking while others are talking. (Raise your hand if you have a question and I will call on you.) Respect the classroom and lab by treating books and lab equipment carefully, gently, and with caution. Only use lab equipment that you have been instructed on how to operate.
- Make good use of your time. This includes staying in your seat, with your work out, until the bell rings.
- While attendance is taken, get your materials ready to begin work. Be ready to start as soon as I am finished! You are considered tardy if you enter the doorway after the bell sounds.
- Follow all instructions, especially in the laboratory. Dress appropriately for lab.
- All school rules, including the tardy policy, will be enforced. (See student handbook.)
- Please do not leave the room unless it is absolutely necessary. You MUST have a hall pass.
- Always do your own, absolute best work. Cheating and plagiarism will result in a zero grade.
