IB Chemistry II Syllabus
IB Chemistry II 2016-2017
Textbook – Chemistry Course Companion for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. Oxford
This is a first year course that will build on the chemistry studied in Pre-IB chemistry and then will give students a choice of taking the final year of SL or HL chemistry. This class will follow all of the areas of the IB Syllabus. Activities will include problem solving, demonstrations, experiments, laboratory practice, science fair projects (optional), group IV activities and internal assessment.

Student Study Agreement Class Policies
1. You are responsible for: keeping track of your assignments, making up missed work and exams, and obtaining missed handouts and notes.
2. Assignments are late if not presented at the beginning of your chemistry class.
3. Late work will only be accepted one day late and with a loss of credit.
4. Missed labs must be made up or have an alternate assignment done (depending on the lab).
5. Absence from an exam or quiz requires a make-up be administered upon return to class. In most cases makeups will be given IN CLASS the day of your return UNLESS YOU COME AND SEE ME BEFORE 7:25 AM THE DAY YOU RETURN. (Our test day is Tuesday and the makeup will be Wednesday). If you delay the makeup and are in class that day, you will lose 20% per day.
If you attend other classes the day of an exam or quiz but are not in my class (examples of when this might happen include a Doctor or dentist visit), you must take the missed quiz/exam at lunch or after school or take the makeup starting at 80% of the grade earned. You may avoid this by speaking to me beforehand.
- Assignments given at least a week prior to an absence that were due during the absence must be submitted the day of return for full credit.
8. The careless use of equipment or materials in a lab that result in damage or a failed lab study will result in a grade of zero for the activity. Accidents that cannot be foreseen are excluded.
9. Malicious activity such as the deliberate harming of equipment, students, the lab set-ups of other students, etc. will result in a zero for the activity, a conduct referral, and possible permanent removal from the Chemistry class.
10. Plagiarism as well as other forms of cheating will result in a zero for the activity and a referral. All lab write-ups, research projects, extra credit projects, including data analysis and presentations, must be performed independently unless specified. Always cite references.
11. There will be no retakes on tests. This is a college level class and students should be treated accordingly.
Student Study Agreement Class Policies
Classroom standards of conduct
1. It is important to treat all materials and displays in this classroom with respect.
2. Deliberately tampering with another class’ materials will result in a referral.
3. For safety reasons, no food or drink is allowed during a laboratory exercise.
4. During non-lab classes, water bottles are permitted.
5. Unkindness toward others will not be tolerated and is subject to referral.
6. When an adult or another student enters the classroom to speak with the teacher during a lecture or discussion, all students will remain silent. If the conversation is prolonged, students should occupy themselves reading science handouts, notes, or text.
7. All of the regulations delineated by SCHS, including dress codes, are in effect.
8. You are encouraged to ask questions when time permits and to seek clarification during class, before or after school or at lunch.
9. The online gradebook will be used but may not reflect extra credit until the end of the quarter.
Consequences 1. Warning after class – teacher will record incident.
2. Second student conference – parent contact.
3. Further problems – referral.
4. Repeated offenses or problems will be dealt with accordingly including removal from this class.
Grading Policy: Grades include daily class participation, written work including class work, laboratory work and homework assignments, quizzes, tests and projects.
Formative Assessments 40% - Class work, homework, quizzes, labs
Summative Assessments 60% - Tests, labs
Lab work is a required portion of the class and will include experiments from lab manuals, fieldwork, data analysis, and student designed experiments. Students will work in lab groups but are each responsible for completing individual lab reports each week. Students will be required to wear closed toe shoes. All labs will be completed according to the specified format and be graded according to the rubric distributed by the instructor. Any missed labs must be made up within three days.
