Announcements for Physical Science 12 Summer 2015

Welcome Summer Semester Students.

For the Summer Semester Students, you can now go to my CONNECT page for instructions needed to register for the online homework.  The textbook may not be available yet at the BC Bookstore.  If you get your book somewhere else and need to buy the CONNECT passcode online, you can do so using the instruction on my CONNECT page at a cost of about $40 or purchase a free trial which you can pay for later if you get into the class.  I do have some textbooks on reserve in the BC Library that you can borrow for up to one hour at a time.

The lab books and Power Point Print Out books are now available at Office Max.  You will need a valid BC ID to buy the lab book at the discount price.  Please see the syllabus. 

You should read completely and carefully the Preclass Info link off of my main webpage, my syllabus for the day labs and the CONNECT links ASAP and begin the class right away.  You should check the web page often for timely and important information related to the class.

The Preliminary Questionnaire will be available in mid June.
