You must be able to read.
2.) you must be capable of human thought.
It is expected that you will
use the above two talents to fight for a good grade in this course.
(Who knows, you might even LEARN something along the way!)
There are TWO
REALLY NICE problems that I would be delighted
if you could create for me:
1.) I have to explain why I am giving too many A's.
2.) someone decides maybe biology ain't so bad after all, and they want to maybe take ANOTHER biology course (or even better, MAJOR in biology!).
Classroom quizzes - 10% of course gradeExaminations are on 20 February and 20 April. The Final Examination is cumulative. Make-up exams will only be given in extreme circumstances, and only with a note from a physician or the Dean's Office. You are responsible for making an appointment with me to sit for a make-up exam. Due to set-up requirements, laboratory exercises cannot be made up and, if excused, will be dropped from your grade calculation. Unexcused absence from an exam or laboratory assignment will receive no credit (a zero).
2 Classroom examinations - 20% of course grade (10% each)
2 Written papers - 20% of course grade
Comprehensive Final examination - 15% of course grade
Laboratory Assignments - 35% of course grade
