IGCSE Chemistry Year 10

Ms. Emine Demir & Ms. Elena Bashkirova

Welcome to the IGCSE year 10 Chemistry web page for Ms. Emine and Ms. Elena

In this class students will study matter and the changes it undergoes, learning the structure of atoms and molecules, elements, compounds, and mixtures. The Periodic Table will be a vital tool. Understanding of why chemical reactions occur and how to control them, what is a mole, & stoichiometry. The instructional approach emphasizes the concepts of chemistry and students will have weekly laboratory experiences.


CLASS EXPECTATIONS

1. Respect yourself, the teacher & others

2. Put forth your best effort at all times

· Always do your own best work.

· Put learning ahead of getting good grades.

· Put quality ahead of just getting it done

3. Be prepared for class each day

4. Follow directions when given

When directions are given, do your best to follow them the first time. If you are confused or have questions, ask. I would rather have you stop class to clarify than be off task while everyone else is working.

6. Preserve a positive learning environment

7. Take responsibility for your actions

Cell Phones should be turned off and invisible during the class period. If I see or hear your phone it will be taken away and given to an administrator, according to cell phone policy outlined in the EMS handbook. Refusal to turn over the cell phone will be treated as insubordinate behavior.

2. No food or drink, except water

3. Arrive to class on time & ready to learn
