Follow the navigation links  (left margin) for specific problems for each chapter's homework assignment. It is very important that the chapter reading and homework are done before coming to class.

Specific due dates for homework will be posted on the classroom whiteboard, but reading must be completed before the class lecture/discussion covering that material

*Laboratories consist of a minimum of 90 minutes of work, by the students manipulating chemicals and/or lab equipment and generating their own data. Lectures will be supplemented by teacher demonstrations that may require note-taking or calculations by the students. Labs may need to be finished on your own time. Lab will be open at least 1 afternoon per week.

First Quarter ends October 13, 2017
