Welcome to Miss Edwards' Biology I Class.
Biology I is a Core 40 class that must be passed to graduate. Grades are determined by total points with each chapter test doubled. Each 9-weeks, grades are given for a complete, neat, and organized notebook and for "performance plus" (an assessment of the student's conduct and effort). Homework is given regularly, usually followed by a small quiz on the day it is due. At least one or more labs or writing assignments are given each chapter. Late work is accepted but only given half credit. Extra credit is available and standard for each chapter. Apex Virtual learning on internet will be used as a supplementary resource on each chapter . Apex is optional but can help their grade if completed. The students are given class information and guidelines on the first day of class and should be kept in the first 5 pages of their notebook.
