Instructor: Dr. S. Jorstad Final Exam For multiple choice questions (each worth 3 points), bubble all correct answers (there may be more than one); there is a 1 point penalty for incorrect answer choices. There are 40 3- point questions (for an apparent total of 120 points), but the exam is worth 200 points; thus, raw exam scores will be multiplied by 1.67. Grades posted to the D2L gradebook will reflect this calculated score, not your raw score. These are questions from the cumulative portion of last Fall’s final exam. Below is a note to myself about other possible questions for the cumulative part. There will also be questions on the lecture topics covered since Exam IV: regulation of eukaryotic gene expression (the last half of Topic 15), plus topics 16-18. Next time add questions on 1) ways to regulate the concentration of a gene product (e.g. an enzyme) in a cell; 2) trace e- in PSN and respiration, flow of e-, what is oxidized/reduced 1. Science a. is a method for generating natural explanations about the natural world. b. requires the direct observation of phenomena that are to be used as evidence. c. would not advance over the centuries without geniuses like Darwin and Watson (of Watson and Crick). d. is neutral on the existence of the supernatural, such as God. e. can be used to prove there is no God. 2.
