Course Description: In 7th grade science students will study a variety of topics that include chemistry, physical and earth science; however, most of their time will be spent on biological concepts in preparation for 9th grade Biology.

Plagiarism is defined as “the use of any other person’s work as one’s own and the unacknowledged use of that work in one’s own work.” All work must be the student’s own work. Any plagiarized work will result in a grade of zero along with a parent-teacher-administrator conference.
A student will be responsible for obtaining and completing the make-up work in a satisfactory manner and within the time allocated to each assignment.
Missing Work/Late Work:
Assignments given in this class are not optional. Assignments will be written on the board, and students will be asked to write the assignment down in their agendas. If you do not do the assignment you will receive a zero for the assignment, until the assignment is turned in. Late work will be accepted at 10 points off per day.
