Students must follow the lab rules listed as lab safety rules.

    Class Procedures
    • Classes will normally start with a period for students to ask questions. It is important that students arrive in class prepared to ask any questions they have about their homework, readings, or the previous day's class. If a student is nervous about asking the question, that may slip the teacher a piece of paper with the question, or ask the teacher before class to cover the topic with the entire class 
    • To help the students retain information from the daily lesson, students are encouraged to write a brief sentence or two in their notebook summarizing the topics learned during the daily lesson.
