The following is a color code for each class:

Honors Chemistry (Red Text) --- 4A Chemistry (Blue Text) --- B-Day Chemistry (GreenText)
*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. I am usually available before school, during lunch, and after school (except Mondays and Tuesdays) if a student needs to take a quiz, take a test, do a lab, or ask questions.
Unit Zero is now completed - we are not in unit 1 (click on the page link for "__**Chemistry - Unit 1**__")

NOTE: - I was not aware of the difficulty of this assignment as I borrowed it from another teacher. This was an error on my part that should never happen again. While the concepts are necessary, the difficulty of this set of problems was greater than I wanted them to be. So, your grade will not be harmed if you were not able to complete this assignment. Again, this should never happen again. As a side note: since this was challenging, you should have been seeking me out for some assistance when you are having difficulties. This has been a learning lesson for both of us :-)
