Periodic Trends Data

Color Coded Periodic Table Example
Your periodic table does NOT have to use the exact same colors BUT you must be able to distinguish between BLOCK, TYPE, and GROUP NAME. Some of the periodic tables I have seen do not do this clearly enough. If your periodic table does NOT look like the picture below, I recommend that you change it to look more like the picture below.

Scheduling Make-Ups and Before/After School Availability
With the new block schedule, it is probable that most of your make-ups can occur during the school day. Check my schedule for when I am on lunch and not conducting a lab period with another class, although it might be possible for you to make up your work while that is going on, I will not guarantee it.

It is YOUR responsibility to set up meetings before, during, or after school and it is YOUR responsibility to keep them. Do not say you will come in at 7:30am or after school and then not show up.

Mr. Castagno
- Mornings: I try to arrive around 7:30am but Parkway traffic dictates my actual arrival time
- Afternoons: I am always available until at least 3:05pm (except 2 Monday's a month) except Friday.
- This schedule changes during hockey season (mid-November to late-February)
