Dissecting specimens and comparing external and internal structures and describing the distinguishinganatomical and physiological characteristics that pertain to basic metabolic functions and morphogenesis.Comparing anatomical and physiological systems of animals.Grading Scale for BIO 102Your grade in the course is a calculation of the sum of allpoints that you have earned on lecture exams, quizzes,laboratory assignments, lab practical exams, and a finalexam and converting this sum to a percentage score.
