Advanced Biology (Human Anatomy and Physiology)
Each student will be assigned a textbook, "Human Anatomy and Physiology". They are expected to treat this textbook in a careful matter so that we can keep using them the following year. The majority of our studies, homework, and tests will be from this textbook. Points are earned for correct answers on questions from our textbook, worksheets, quizzes, and tests. Homework and tests/quizzes are weighted equally. The semester exam is worth one-fifth of the semester grade.
Homework policy. All homework is due the following school day at the start of class unless otherwise noted. Any homework that does not get turned in may be turned in the next school day at the start of class for 1/2 credit. After that, the assignment will be given no credit.
Cell phone use: Students have two options regarding cell phones when entering my classroom...
1. They may place their cell phone in the white, plastic bin by the classroom door.
2. They may keep it in their pocket, where it is not seen.
I do not allow cell phone use in class. I understand there are times (weather-related issues/game cancellations) where students need to contact their parents/guardians to notify them. Under these and other serious circumstances, I may give permission to let them use their phones, but this will be a case-by-case situation.
If a student has a cell phone out of their pocket in my classroom without permission, I will bring the cell phone (turned off) down to the office and turn it over to them.

Use this as an area to quickly remind students/parents of tests/quizzes or major reports or assignments due. Could also use as field trip/permission slip reminders, etc...
