Sciences de la vie et de la Terre Syllabus 2012-2013 For 12th S grade
Instructor: Mrs. Lundberg
Room: lab biology
E-mail: [email protected]
PTVH: Friday 11:30-12:15
Textbook: SVT Nathan.
Course Description: Biology is devoted to the study of living things and their processes.
Throughout the year this course provides an opportunity for students to develop scientific
process skills, laboratory techniques, and an understanding of the fundamental principles of
living organisms. Students will explore biological science as a process, cell structure and
function, genetics and heredity, evolution and classification.
 Teach students practical scientific skills, which they can use to investigate, study and explain
the world around them.
 Give students a deeper understanding of the how biology impacts their daily lives.
 To encourage the spirit of scientific investigation and with it the attitudes of accuracy in
thought and work.
Students learning outcome:
 Learn how to do and analyze a graph
 Learn how to analyze a document and use it to answer to a science question
 Learn how to prepare and participate in a debate
 Learn how to use a microscope
 Learn how to use an electrophoresis
 Everything asked for the baccalaureat
Classroom Expectations:
 Students are expected to be in their seat and ready when the bell rings.
 Materials (textbook, pencil, paper, and notebook) must be brought to class each day.
If you do not bring needed materials to class you will be sent to your locker to get them and will
also receive a tardy if you are not in the room when the bell rings.
 The laboratory or room must be clean at the end of the period before leaving.
 Treat everyone with respect.
 Follow the instructions given by teacher or lesson.
 All school rules will be followed as stated in the student handbook.
Keys for Success in Biology
 Have a positive attitude
I am here to help you succeed, so feel free to ask me for help. I am available before and after
school in my room.
 Ask lots of questions. If you are unclear about something from the textbook, lab, or from
discussion, ask.
 Make sure that you understand how the lecture, homework, and labs interrelate.
 Labs and homework are designed to reinforce significant ideas from the text. Make sure that
you see these connections.
 Start studying for tests early. By studying and reviewing each night you are not only helping to
prepare for the test more effectively, you are also more prepared for class each day and any
quizzes that may be given.

Types of Assignments:
Each time, there will be homework for the next week.
Each time, the lesson has to be understood and known. If something is not clear, at the beginning
of the class I will answer at all the questions.
Sequence of Assignments:
Monday between 3:30 and 4:15
Wednesday between 11:30 and 12:15
Friday between 1:50 and 3:15
Monday between 4:15 and 5:45 (for biology specialty)
Basis for Assigning the Course Grade:
Noted homework: coefficient 1
Quiz: coefficient 1
Test: coefficient 3
Make-up Policy:
If a student is absent, when he’ll be back, at the beginning of the class, we will explain to him
what he missed.
But there are 2 cases:
He comes back the same day of the biology class; he will have to complete his notebook for the
next biology class.
He comes back few days before the biology class, he will have to complete his notebook for the
class and try to do the homework.
If a student is not here for a test, he will have to do it when he comes back.
Other classroom considerations:
All tests or quizzes below 10/20 have to be signed by one parent or tutor.
If an exercise is not done, the student has to bring back a note from his tutor.
