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.
