    THE LINK FOR THE DAILY ZOOM MEETINGS ARE IN CANVAS ON THE COURSE HOMEPAGE

     

    Hybrid/Virtual Lessons:  This semester all lessons and assignments will be available in Canvas for all students. Students who attend school in person will receive paper worksheets and notes outlines.  These are available in Canvas to print at home for remote learners. If you do not attend school in person and would like paper copies, let me know and I will have copies available for pick up in the office. A link will be provided to a virtual textbook, or you may take a physical textbook home with you.  On days you are not physically present in school, you must log in to my Zoom meeting within 10 minutes of class start time.  We will have zoom for whole class instruction for approximately 30-45 minutes daily, but I will leave the meeting open the entire class period if you have questions.  Students are not required to have the camera on, but are encouraged to do so if possible

  • NEED HELP?

    If you have missed a day or are having trouble understanding anything in class you can try the videos listed below.  Go to youtube, and search for the topic and one of these names: Bozeman Science, Crash Course Chemistry, Tyler DeWitt or Khan Academy.  For example, searching "Crash Course Chemistry electron configurations" will result in a really interesting look at electron configurations and music presented by Hank Green!
