Syllabus for Science Seminar


Ms. Sheahan



Our class: We will be taking the Living Environment Regents exam in June. We have a lot to cover this year and it is important that we stay focused on all class work and labs.


Topics:  Scientific Inquiry, Homeostasis, Digestive System, Respiratory System, Circulatory System, Reproductive System, Immune System, Genetics, Evolution, Ecology, Human Impact.


Labs:  All students must have 1200 lab minutes in order to take the Regents exam. These labs must be written up and will stay in my possession. You will have the opportunity to make up missed labs at the end of each marking period. It is your responsibility to make up missing labs!


Absences: Absences must be as few as possible. All missed class work is your responsibility. Previous absence is not an excuse to arrive unprepared. If you are absent more than two days in a row, I will expect you to contact me so I can make sure you don’t fall too far behind.


Required Materials

Three-ringed binder and lined paper. Pens or pencils and erasers. It is your responsibility to bring your notebook and a pen/pencil everyday! All notes will be kept in your notebook.
