As I explained in class to the students, my assignments will be attached in HAC and not on my webpage here.  This is to help work within copyright laws and to preserve intellectual property of the assignments that myself and the other science teachers create.  If you need a copy of an assignment, please log-in to your account in HAC (on-line gradebook), go to classwork, scroll to your science class and click on the assignment you need.  When you click on the assignment, a window opens up where you will see a pdf file you can download.  
As always, if you are having trouble, please email me with concerns or questions.  If you need help getting a HAC account, email our Registrar Mrs. Kay Springer, and she can help set you up.
