This course fulfills the requirement for a Biological Science with a laboratory for General Education requirements.
See Take-Home Message sections within chapters; and, Summaries at the end of each chapter. These pretty much cover all of the objectives for each chapter. Course Criteria (a.k.a., The Rules):
1) Inattention in class and lab is distracting to the other students and to me.
Therefore, for each instance of talking to your neighbor (except in lab as part of normal lab activities), sleeping, using a cell phone or other electronic device (other than taking notes on a laptop), etc., five percentage points
(i.e., ½ letter grade) will be subtracted from your final average. For emergency situations, see me before the class/lab starts that day about an exception to the cell phone policy.
2) Attendance at all lectures and labs is mandatory; I take a very dim view of people not coming to class and/or lab, or leaving lab early. On the third absence from lecture, or the second absence from lab, you will be dropped from the course for non-attendance (excused absences excepted). Leaving lab before the class is dismissed constitutes an absence.
3) Examinations, assignments, quizzes, online quizzes, lab quizzes, etc. (for both lecture and lab) will be taken at the time and on the day scheduled (or unscheduled as the case may be) unless circumstances and I dictate otherwise; you will be notified in advance of any changes to the schedule.
Makeups (lecture and lab) are not permitted. The only exceptions will be absences due to school activities in which case you must notify me in advance in writing as per University rules; we will make alternative arrangements before the regularly scheduled time. The makeup is to be completed within three (3) calendar days of the original date/time unless I grant an extension in writing. Failure to make prior arrangements will result in a score of zero (0) for that activity.
4) Three (3) regular Lecture Exams will be given during the course; these are
worth 100 points each, for a total of 300 points. The Final (4th) Exam
