Suggestions for Success in Chemistry class:
Do each assignment on time, and if you are stuck, get help immediately from Mr. Pirolo during his office hours (12:40 PM - 1:50 PM), or in AVID, or from a classmate. Problems on most of my daily chemistry assignments are just like the ones on the tests, so you will learn how to do them. When you are confused, don't put off getting help until right before the test! Come in and get help right away if you are stuck on the homework. Each days lesson usually builds on what we did the day before, so the sooner you ask for help, the better.
Be here every day if possible. You will miss a lot in just one day of chemistry and you will be confused when you return, so come in for help right away if you are absent. Also remember to ask chemistry questions in your AVID tutorials.
