Each Lesson (review & reinforce and quiz) is worth up to 5 points. 
You may choose to do up to 3 of the 5 available lessons. You may only earn up to 15 extra credit points this quarter!

General Information
Science Grades are weighted.
70% is based on quiz and tests

30% = homework/classwork/labs
Any online assignments as well as links to Quzlet sets, and helpful videos and websites can all be found on Google Classroom.
Students... I strongly recommend visiting our Google Classroom site frequently. There are many helpful videos, links and Quizlets to help you understand lessons, review and prepare for quizzes and tests. At times you will also have to use this site for some assignments. Students can download the App or go to and enter their school email and passord to access our class's page.
Students... I would highly recommend downloading these apps:  GMail (for your school email account - turn ON notifications!), Quizlet, Kahoot,  and Google Classroom on your smart phones, ipods, tablets etc... especially if you don't have access to a computer at home. These can be very helpful in reviewing materials covered in class and preparing for quizzes and tests!

· S   Students...Please make sure you have earbuds/headphones at school and available to use in class every day.
