Korff's Chem A HW

This webpage is updated EVERYDAY!!!! I have until 3pm to make daily changes.
After 3pm, then it's final for that day. You have to check the website everyday.

Reminder: If you are absent, it is your responsibility to get notes, talk to the people from your group to get notes, go to the "do now/objective" page to see what you missed, go to the HW to catch up, to come up to me to hand in work, come up to me to give us whatever was due, etc. Do not come up to me and say you can not do a part of the test because you weren't here. You are juniors and it is up to you to keep up with the work when you are absent. I do not chase you for assignments. It is up to you to give it to me as per school policy. For every day you are absent, you have 2 days to make it up. If you do not have it by then, it is a zero!!!!!
Reminder: You have 48 hrs to see me about a grade you have a question about or disagree with. Once the 48 hrs expires, the issue is void. We will not argue about a grade that is old since it is YOUR responsibility to advocate for yourself and do your job to keep up with your grades. It is up to you to keep up with Genesis. Do not nickel and dime me about a point that is old. Grades are discussed BEFORE or AFTER SCHOOL. Make an appointment to let me know you are coming.

March 26, Thursday
*If you were absent and missed the SGO test today, Greenstein will be there at 6:50am.  YOU MUST make up the SGO test.


March 27
, Friday
*If you were absent today, Greenstein gave a lab to the class.  The lab will help boost your grade.  You are only allowed a period and a half to do it.  So you will have 20 minutes during class Monday, but will need to make up the period you missed today at 6:45am Monday.  NO show = you get the grade you get in 20 minutes.  
1. Ch 11 packet should be completed before your newbie teacher starts Wednesday.  Get the packet pages done before Wednesday.  Pace yourself so that you do 5 pages a night until Wednesday. 
2. Color the periodic table lab and label the parts.  You will need this for newbie.
3. When you get back from spring break, your new teacher will give you the last grade of 3rd quarter on Thursday, April 16th. If you would like to pass the last test of Quarter 3, watch the videos listed above and take notes as if you were doing it for me.
4.  Go to Genesis and look at your grades.  Check to see what grade you got on your SGOs.  If you don't stay crispy for the final and quarter 4, take the grade you see and drop it 25 points. That's the grade you'll probably get for the final.  Don't play around with the final.  I told you how to survive for the rest of the year.
