I have a bachelor's of science degree in chemistry with a minor in mathematics, and a master's of science degree in secondary education with a minor in chemistry.  I also currently teach adult education classes for at my local community college.  I have been a certified 8-12 science teacher in Texas for the past 10 years, spending 5 of those years teaching in public school and community college, 3 years teaching at a homeschool co-op and rest of the time teaching online. I am certified to teach and have experience teaching chemistry, biology, earth science, life science, forensic science, astronomy, integrated physics and chemistry in grades 8-12.
Homework Offered
Students may intermittently be given optional, short assignments to complete outside of class meeting times. These assignments will be given to help introduce new topics, practice skills learned, and/or reinforce learning goals. All assignments outside of class will be optional according to parental discretion.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Formative assessments will be given regularly in each class meeting to assess student learning and connections. The grade for this course will be determined by weekly quizzes, a midterm exam and final exam. All quizzes and exams are optional according to parental discretion but will be available to all students.
Grades Offered
All homework, quizzes and exams are optional, per the preferences of each family. If assignments are completed, grades can be recorded in the digital notebook (provided in the course). If requested, a formal grade report will be provided at the conclusion of the course.
Students should complete Chemistry for High School: Part 1 before this course.
Students will be provided with a digital notebook containing handouts, quiz links, grade recording sheet, and a place to take notes.

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
This course will be taught using Nearpod lessons, which allows for the interaction mentioned above.  If your student will be using a tablet or phone, they will need to download the free Nearpod app, which can be found in the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. I will be posting a link to the Nearpod website and a code into the chat box when class starts and students using a computer will be able to access the lesson via the link or by going to the Nearpod website and entering in the code.

The student notebook for this course will be given in the Google Slides format, so a Google account is helpful.  The notebook will be available in another format upon parent request.

Kahoot will be used as a review game a couple of times during this course.
