The course syllabus is on this page - daily agendas and links to documents will be found on the Moodle page.
Thanks for stopping by.
The Biology course curriculum is designed to continue the investigation and understanding by the student of the biological sciences begun in earlier grades. The Biology course will focus on the concepts of the cell; the molecular basis of heredity; biological evolution; the interdependence of organisms; matter, energy and organization in living systems; and the adaptive responses of organisms
Something to write with (you’d be surprised how many forget this)
Something to write on
Clothes to be outside (shoes, coat, etc – you can leave a pair in my room)
Science book (occasionally – you will be told when to bring it)
This class will be run as a business and you will act as an employee. You will be paid for the work you do. For instance, a quiz may be worth $70. If you make $61 of the $70 you can do a simple percentage to find out your actual grade (You will become very good at calculating percentages). This is not a 100 point scale. Tests will be worth more $ than homework. For example a test might be worth $73 and a classwork assignment could be worth $11.
Classroom rules and EXPECTATIONS:
There is only one Rule: RESPECT.
Respect yourself, Respect others, Respect property, Respect the learning process. This applies to students and Mr. Ahn equally. Consequences will be determined by a classroom contract created (by the class and Mr. Ahn) at the start of the school year.
I expect students to Learn. I expect students to participate in class. I expect students to act with respect. I expect students to take responsibility for their actions. I expect students to really enjoy this class. I expect to be very impressed with each student and with each class.
Tardy Policy and Mobile Device (cell phone) Policy:
If you are not in the room when the bell rings you are late – The 3rd and subsequent tardies in a semester will be turned into the attendance office. If you use a mobile device in class, you will turn it into the office.
Mr. Ahn’s Schedule:
1st – Earth Science year-long
