Chemistry - Unit 1: Properties and Structure of Matter


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.
