Andrew Mayancsik, Science
Andrew grew up in Upland, CA in Southern California and graduated from Humboldt State University in 2009, before receiving his teaching credential in 2010. He has always had a passion for teaching and is a great addition to the FRHS Science department!  Andrew loves science, technology and "anything that would be considered nerdy."  He is currently working on the budding robotics class and other technologies like 3D printing and programming.


Welcome from Mr. Mayancsik:

Wil Keepers, Science
Wil Keepers grew up on a small cattle and hay farm in Pleasant Hill, Oregon, then attended Blue Mountain Community College and graduated from the University of Idaho.  He served in the Navy as an Arabic Cryptologic Linguist, and has been a science teacher since 2003.  He enjoys the outdoors, writing, cooking, and reading.  He and his wife Season have three daughters, Taylor, (21) Sierra, (19) and Savannah (13), who attends FRHS!


Welcome from Mr. Keeper:
I am so glad to be back in the classroom, and even with all the differences from previous years, feel fortunate to be able to be teaching your students again.  I teach half the science curriculum, with Mr. Mayansik teaching the other half. 

My half includes:
8th Grade Science:  An introductory overview of the world of Chemistry, Physics, and Astronomy
10th Grade Chemistry:  A look at the major concepts of chemistry including Periodic Properties, Naming Rules, Balancing Equations, Stoichiometry, Gas Laws, Thermodynamics, and Organic Chemistry
11th/12th Grade Anatomy:  A look at the twelve human body systems, and how they all work together to provide homeostasis
9th-12th Grade Physical Science:  (Alternating years) A high school overview of the basics of Geology, Astronomy, Meteorology, Chemistry and Physics
11th/12th Grade Advanced Chemistry: (Alternating years) An in-depth look at chemistry, including all of the topics of chemistry plus focus on advanced topics in Stoichiometry, Gas Laws, Thermodynamics, Acid/Base Laws, Red-Ox, Organic Chemistry, and Biochemistry

Grading Policies for all Classes:
All my sciences classes are divided into three categories, homework (30%), labs and activities (30%), and tests and quizzes (40%).  All homework and labs are given a due date when passed out, and if turned in late but before the chapter test can still earn 75%, if turned in after that chapter test, can earn up to 50%.  
Classroom Rules:
Rule of Respect:  Treat yourself, your class mates and your teacher with respect and dignity.
Be Prepared:  Part of respecting yourself is being ready when you come to class to learn and participate
Be Safe:  Please do not bring food or drink to the science lab (except for water in a closeable container).  Please listen to direction and be attentive during labs and activities
