Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 8th grade science for the 2022-2023 school year. My name is Mr. Nye. Please check out the Google Classroom pages for information about assignments and other important information.
You will need to take notes during class either on a Google Doc or on paper. If you choose to use paper and pencil, you will need a notebook and a writing utensil for science class.
8th Grade Science Overview
Lots of experiments, demonstrations, and hands-on activities
Challenging curriculum primarily consisting mostly of physics and chemistry
Grade is based upon total points (see syllabus for more information).
Learning will be assessed with classwork, quizzes, tests, lab reports (Google Docs), and projects/presentations.
Slideshows and other resources used in class will be posted on Google Classroom.
Study Guides will be provided for major tests.
NO HOMEWORK! You may have to finish an assignment if you were absent or didn't finish in class, but you will be given plenty of class time to complete your assignments assuming if you are on-task. You can have your work checked as many times as needed before submitting. This is especially important for lab reports.
Quiz and Test Re-takes (Quiz- Half the points back if grade improved; Test- Up to 5 points added onto original test grade if grade improved)
Skills Class- 1st half of the year = Metric Review & Energy; 2nd half = PSSA preparation).
