Daven Tubb's L.E.A.P. classes


Assignments and Homework Policy

Students will work on a variety of tasks that range from discussion and reading assignments to hands-on activities,laboratory investigations, and State Science Work Samples. For some students the work will be completed in class, others will find that they need to finish the assignment at home. Students also have the option of revising and editing some assignments that are already graded (lab reports, for example).



Student Folders are graded every two or three weeks. Reading assignmernts, vocabulary, and other worksheets are worth 5 points Lab reports are worth 10 points and projects and work samples are worth 20 points. Students are asked think of their folders as "portfolios" of their best work.

The LEAP Program

The Roosevelt Science Team has put together a sequence of nine-week classes that explore the main branches of science (Life, Earth, and Physical). Students will get an introduction to some basic principles in each area. For instance, a student in a "Life" science class may study cells and learn how to use a microscope. In an "Earth" science class, a student may study rocks and minerals, learn how to use scientific equipment, and how to determine the density of minerals. And in the "Physical" science class, a student may learn about the properties of matter and conduct experiments on objects in motion. These classes are designed to be hands-on, fun, and challenging. So, students, get ready to LEAP into science!
