Contact me · Chemistry Links · AP InformationWelcome to Mr. Dubé's Web site. I hope you will use this site to learn more about your class, my expectations, and chemistry in the world around you.
Homework will be given daily, is due at the beginning of the period the school day after it was assigned, and will be worth 5 to 10 points. A periodic quiz consisting of 1 or 2 homework problems from the past week may be given in lieu of collecting homework.
Tests and quizzes will be used to check your understanding of concepts, procedures, and information. Quizzes will be worth 10 to 25 points and will be given at least once a month. Tests will be worth up to 100 points and will be given 2 or 3 times a quarter.
Labs will be worth 10 to 30 points and will be graded on safety, participation, and write-up. I expect neat handwritten or typed reports. I'll also assign small research projects throughout the semester.
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.
I can meet with you before or after school. I will also be in my room (H113) during most lunch hours. Please do not hesitate to stop in if you need extra help -- do not wait! Chemistry is a building subject, and it is very hard to catch up once you fall behind.
Chemistry with Dubé is like medicine with a spoonful of C12H22O11!
