Welcome to Mr. Pearson's Science Classes at Daegu High School

Mr. Pearson's email - james.pearson@pac.dodea.edu, james.discgolf@gmail.com

Please note that this is NOT my primary website. This site is set up for those students who are having difficulites accessing the DHS "Share Point" site (password issues...) For a daily breakdown of homework and assignments, please visit: http://extranet.dghs.pac.dodea.edu/classroom/pearson/default.aspx

I highly recommend that students DO NOT fall behind in chemistry or physics as what we are learning today WILL be used to learn the content tomorrow. Below are some general documents and useful web sites:

Chemistry Questionnaire from a previous school year: June 2010 -

*Remember- Students are responsible for ALL classwork, homework, labs, notes, quizes, and tests. Regardless if a student is absent, late, at the nurse, on a fieldtrip, or for any other reason... students are still responsible for all work during the time/days that they missed class. Homework is due at the BEGINNING of class and will be graded on effort and completeness. I will accept any late assignments for 1/2 credit if it is turned in within ONE week of being late - after ONE weeks, I will not accept it. I am usually available before school, during lunch, and after school (except Tuesdays & Wednesdays) if a student needs to take a quiz, take a text, do a lab, or ask questions. If another time is needed, it is the student's responsibility to arrange a time.
YOUR education is YOUR responsibility**, I am here to assist you, but you have to put forth the effort :-)
