Welcome to 2017-2018 Regular Chemistry!

Hello, students!

Welcome to 2017-2018 Regular Chemistry – this will be a new level of this class for me! What an exciting new challenge for my 25th year of teaching at MHS! I look forward to it!!!

Check back in August to see what we are doing each day, check for upcoming due dates, and download assignments!

For this class, you will need a one inch ring binder, a Science Notebook with graph paper squares, a scientific calculator with an “EE” or “EXP” button (A TI 35 is my personal favorite!), and BOTH pens and pencils.

I look forward to meeting you at the MHS Open House in August! Here’s to a great year ahead!!! ūüôā
