Missing Work/Make-Up Policy:
Students who are absent will be allowed to make up missing assignments if the absence is
excused. Work should be made up upon student return to school. Make-up for test will
be on Tuesdays and Thursdays only from 4:00-5:00 PM.

Students References for Assessments:
    Students will be allowed to use the periodic table for all tests.
    Students will apply significant figures in problem solving.
    Students must memorize polyatomic ions for use in writing formulas.
    Students will be allowed to use a calculator during all class assessments.

Laboratory Reports:
Laboratory write-ups are due on a specific date, generally 2-5 days after completion of
the laboratory investigation. Late reports will be assessed a 15% per day penalty except
in the case of an excused absence or illness. Not all labs will require reports.

                                      Page 9 of 20
Extra Help Days:
Extra help is available any day after school except for meeting days by appointment.
Morning appointments must be made on an individual basis with the teacher.

Grading Scale:
A            93-100
B            85-92
C            77-84
D            70-76
F            69-0

    Daily assignments can be expected and must be submitted by the due date.
    Students are responsible for missed work on the days of absences. Make-up
      assignments due to an excused absent will be accepted no later than 3 days after
      the student returns to class.
    During testing (quiz/test) students are expected not to talk, leave their seat, and
      have unauthorized study materials. Any violation of these rules will result in a
      grade of zero and a phone call home.
    Missing a scheduled make-up lab, quiz or test without notification will result in a
      zero credit.

Students are responsible for being in school each day. You may not have more than five
unexcused absences before credit is denied in this course. Attendance affects your
performance in class.

                 Appendix A: Lab Notebook for Honors Chemistry

   1. The lab notebook provides a permanent record of your work in lab and can be
      used as a reference in college courses. Some colleges require students to submit
      their lab notebooks before giving them credit for the lab component of the course.
      It is also handy to review your lab notebook for the lab question on the AP exam.
   2. If you are working professionally in a lab it would provide legal evidence of the
      conception of an idea and the date of that conception. It can be used in disputes
      about patents, royalties, and legal issues.

   1. All entries must be orderly, legible, and in permanent black or blue ink.
   2. Errors should be crossed out with a single line. You will not be penalized for any
      material neatly crossed out. Do not try to obliterate the mistake. DO NOT USE
      WHITE OUT. Using white out or obliterating entries will result in a loss of
   3. Number all pages in the lab book, consecutively, in the top right corner. Pages
      should NEVER be torn out.
   4. Reserve the first 2 pages for the Table of Contents. The last couple of pages will
      be an Appendix.
   5. Each entry must be dated, i.e., each day you work in your lab notebook should be
      dated. Begin each lab’s work on a separate page. USE YOUR NOTEBOOK
      DURING LAB. Do not wait and write your entries in later.
   6. If you do not have your lab notebook on a lab day, you will not be permitted to
      take part in the lab that day and must make up the lab on your time within the next
      two days.

Content for Each Lab:
  1. Title
  2. Prelab: Take notes during the prelab discussion.
  3. Overview: Summarize the purpose for doing the lab and give a very brief
      explanation of what you are doing.
  4. Personal Account: Describe what you did clearly enough that someone else could
      repeat the experiment. This should be written in narrative form and should be a
      conceptual account of what you did with enough details.
          a. Discussion of equipment: What does the equipment do? How does it
              work? Any difficulties you had using the equipment? Diagrams and
              sketches of the setup are often helpful.
          b. Use of proper chemical and lab terminology: Describe what data you are
              collecting and why you are collecting it.
          c. Qualitative observations: Document changes of color, exo- or
              endothermic, precipitates, etc. Describe the chemistry of these

                                     Page 12 of 20
   5. Data Tables and Figures: Organize your observations and your data in NEAT
      tables. Be sure to label all units and record the correct number of sig figs. Graphs
      should be set up properly. Axes should be labeled, rates calculated, etc.
   6. Calculations: Show at least one sample for all calculations. Write formulas, show
      substitutions with units, and record the answer with correct digits and units.
   7. Discussion: You will usually be asked to answer the questions from the lab sheet.
   8. Evaluation: Compare your results to what is expected (standards), analyze errors
      that could have cause “your” error, and suggest ways you could improve on this
      experimental procedure.
   9. Conclusion: Summarize what you did in the lab (similar to overview) and report

Evaluation Options: Each lab will be assessed using one of these three methods:
   1. Lab Notebook Evaluation
   2. Lab Report
   3. Open-Lab-Book Quiz

                   Appendix B: How to Write a Formal Lab Report

The purpose of a lab report is to present in a clear, concise, and organized manner the
work you did in the laboratory and the results you obtained.

The lab report should include the following sections:
    Introduction
    Methods and Materials
    Results
    Discussion with conclusion

In writing a lab report, always indicate clearly the title of the experiment and then clearly
identify and separate each of the above mentioned sections. Data tables, diagrams, and
graphs should either be done on a computer or neatly taped into the lab report. Although
content is the most important feature of a lab report, neatness is a close second. The
neatness of the overall report is important and neatness in the organization is essential. A
lab report is not intended to be a piece of literature; however, it should be written in good
English. It should be written in the third person and it is preferable that it be written in
the past tense. Your formal lab reports must be typed and double-spaced. The text of a
formal lab should be continuous so do not leave blank paper at the bottom of a page to
start the next section on a new sheet of paper.

The Introduction should state as clearly as possible the nature of the experiment and
why you are doing the experiment. Second, the introduction should give a brief overview
of the method used. Try to assimilate the instructions in the lab manual and express them
in your own words. Frequently you will be asked to include background information you
have read in other articles or books; it is important that the authors of information be
cited when you include their ideas.

In the Methods and Materials you should briefly explain how the experiment was done.
This should be written as a narrative, not as a step-by-step detailed “cookbook”
procedure. Pick out what was essential to the method. This section must be written in
the past tense. Do not list the materials you used. A correctly-written M&M would say,
“the test tubes were filled,” not, “we/he/I filled the test tubes.”

The Results sections should contain the data collected in the lab organized in table form,
a sample of any calculations (including formulas and substitutions), and graphs that
demonstrate relationships between data and variables. Each table and figure must be
numbered and have a title. You should include a narrative paragraph in the results
section that briefly describes each table and figure (do not interpret data or graphs in the
results section). Graphs are either to be done on graph paper or generated by computer.
Tables and figures must be numbered separately of each other.

The Discussion is the most important part of the report because this is where you will:
    Analyze the data: explain how you reached your conclusions
    Compare your results with expected results

                                       Page 14 of 20
         Analyze your experimental error
         Summarize the conclusions (the last paragraph should always summarize what
          you “did” and what you “got”)
