Text

Biology by Miller & Levine (2002). Chapters to be covered include but are not limited to 1 through 18, and 35 through 40. The text book is available on-line and directions on how to register will be provided to you via hard copy and/or on my website. The textbooks will be kept in the classroom. If you need a hard copy, one can be signed out to you. The cost to replace lost textbooks is $75.00.

Supplies

  • three-ring binder (at least 1.5 inches thick) with white lined paper
  • writing utensils: #2 pencils, black or blue pens
  • colored pencils/markers/crayons
  • basic functioning calculator
  • access to a computer

Daily: You will arrive in class prepared. The previous day’s assignment will be collected at the beginning of class (for full credit). Class-work and homework assignments that are not “graded” will be collected and “checked off” for completion. These assignments count as 20% of your term grade! This “participation grade” is added at the midterm and end of each term. Late assignments will be accepted for partial credit.
