Evaluation of Student Performance and Grading:
Evaluation of student's work is based upon laboratory reports, unit exams, quizzes, homework, and notebook.  Note : Students will be withdrawn from the class or receive an "F" if they are absent from class a total of 20% of the scheduled classes in accordance to the college attendance policy.  

It is strongly encouraged to check each student's progress through school Tools.  This is updated every two to three days.  I am available for help every day thru the day including guided study hall and after school.
