Welcome to the Chemistry Classes Web site.
I hope you will use these pages to learn more about my class and my expectations.

Homework: Homework will be given daily and is due at the beginning of the period the day after it was assigned. Homework is worth 5 to 10 points. A periodic quiz consisting of 1 or 2 homework problems from the past week may be given in place of homework.
Tests and quizzes: Quizzes are worth 10 to 25 points and will be given at least once a month. Tests are worth up to 100 points and will be given 2 or 3 times a quarter.
Labs: Labs are worth 10 to 30 points and are graded on safety, participation, and write-up. Reports should be neatly written or typed.
Research projects: To explore other aspects of chemistry, small research projects will be assigned throughout the year.
You must make up missed tests and quizzes the day you return, and you must submit missed homework assignments and labs within two days for every one day you missed. Failure to make up work within these time frames will result in a 0 for that test or assignment.
You can meet with Mr. Dubé before or after school or during most lunch hours in room H113. Do not hesitate to ask for help! It can be very hard to catch up if you fall behind.
Labs are completed weekly. Because of the potential danger of any lab exercise, you expected to follow the highest standards of conduct. Misbehavior can result in dismissal from the lab.
