I strongly encourage my students to do extra credit work.
Almost any scientific topic is acceptable for extra credit. I especially enjoy it when my students do research on a nutrition related subject (such as a vitamin, mineral, disease that has nutrition implications...).
I will accept a short research paper that includes information on what you learned while doing the research. You must include where you found your information (such as books, or internet sites). If the paper is a summary of an article, you must include a copy of the article.
You must ask for my approval before researching a topic.
Only 2 extra credit assignments will be allowed each marking period. Points will be added into your total points for the quarter.
Throughout the year I will inform you of other extra credit assignments or if you have an idea, feel free to ask me about it!
