• Welcome to Mr. Voegler's website,
     
    I am very excited to welcome you all back.  We are going to have a fun and interesting year learning about Earth Science.  In this course we will investigate the scientific concepts, rules and principles which are associated with planet earth as well as other celestial bodies.  Major units of study include; Astronomy, Earth's Landforms, Earthquakes & Volcanoes, Earth's Geological History, Natural Resources and Meteorology.  Welcome to your first High School Regents Science Class.
     
    Class Rules:

    2. Respect the classroom, everyone and everything in it

    Requirements:
        - Binder with Earth Science section

    How to figure out your grade:
     
    Homework- every homework counts towards your homework grade.  I will randomly check homework throughout the quarter. 
     
    Test/Quizzes-  Every test and quiz are counted towards a point system.  At the end of the quarter all of your points are divided by all the possible points.
     
    Labs- Labs are an extremely important part of this course.  It is a NYS Earth Science Regents requirement that at least 1,200 minutes (30 labs) be completed before being allowed to take the regents in June.
     
    Breakdown
     
    Tests/Quizzes/HW-  90%
