Chapter Quizzes: Throughout each chapter we will have numerous quizzes. These will
serve as a guide to help you prepare for your unit exams. Quizzes may not be made
up if you are unexcused (tardy or absent). All missed quizzes due to an excused
absence must be completed upon the day of return.

Assignments: Homework will consist of reading assignments and completing labs. You will
have class assignments designed to help you develop a greater understanding of the material.
Study Tips: Your textbook provides Check Your Progress questions after each section. At
the end of each chapter you will find a chapter summary and assessment questions. Answers
to questions are found in the back of your textbook.

Late Work / Makeup Policy: Unexcused absences will always result in a

zero. All exams and lab work must be made up within three days of your
return due to an excused absence. You may make up labs during tutoring
or Advisory. No late work is accepted per OTC policy.

Lab Work: All students will complete a lab safety unit, quiz and agreement form. Some
labs require goggles and closed-toe shoes. The state of Missouri requires the
completion of at least 10 of the 13 OTC labs to earn college science credit.

CANVAS: Our class uses an online learning management system called

CANVAS to access course materials. We will use technology during class.
You may use your assigned Chromebook to access the required material.
