Welcome to APES!
Keep up with your assignments this semester! We will be very busy with preparations for the AP exam and your regular classwork and labs. To help you keep up, we will be following the syllabus and there will be no late work accepted. If you keep up, you won't find yourself buried under an avalanche of late work!
FORMATTING HOMEWORK: Remember to use the required format for homework that you submit on-line. On-line home work files need to have your complete name and the assignment in the document title. This is important because I download the assignments to a file on my computer for grading. I love to read your comments, but neither your names or comments are downloaded with the file. If you want credit for your work, title your files with your name and the assignment. An example: Barbara_Scott_unit6SGQ1.docx
Also, remember to include the questions with your answers FOR ALL HOMEWORK. You can cut and paste them in if you type your work. This will help you to write more complete answers! Many of you are still skipping large sections of the questions which is resulting in lower scores!
SUBMITTING HOMEWORK: All assigned homework is due and must be turned in at the beginning of class, in class, unless submitted on this web site. DO NOT EMAIL YOUR HOMEWORK! EMAILED ASSIGNMENTS ARE DELETED. The on-line drop box is an extra (and generous) option to allow extra time and an alternative way to submit selected assignments that I will STOP PROVIDING if students continue to email homework or claim to have sent their homework to my email as an excuse.
The first AP Readiness session is Saturday, September, 24. You must register online. The website for registration will be available after August 22nd, and can be found at www.uclaapr.org.Check the AP Readiness folder on the right after September 7th for topics and bus times !
Bring your textbook and supplies to class!
Please remember to bring your covered textbook, agenda, supplies and completed homework to class every day. There will be random book and bookcover checks in every class - so be prepared!
