Mr. Jeff Wiktor

Welcome to 8th Grade Science,  Team SPARTANS!

The 2019-20 School year marks my second year at AUGS, but this is my 26th year of teaching 8th graders SCIENCE!

Here is some basic information regarding our class and some things you should be able to expect from your students:


Two Types of Knowledge to be Gained:  Factual and Procedural

The Scientific Method and Practices (Writing Emphasis)

Diversity of Life, Adaptations and Evolution over Time



Binder Contains Daily Work, a Learning Log, Labs and Activities:  Observations, Data collection and Analysis, a Vocabulary List, Notes, and All Assessments!

This is a great way to watch your student’s development and ability to meet standards in science!



Point System:

All activities worth a number of points dependant on amount of work students are required to do or the demonstration of standards attainment.

Students also earn daily points for meeting school and learner expectations in class.

Work not turned in or missing will count as a zero until completed.

10% Scale for letter grades.

Powerschool is great way to see upcoming grades/tests/activities!
