Fundamentals of Biochemistry 1 Spring 2018 TTH 3:30-5:00 pm in JES A121A BCH369: 54530 Fundamentals of Biochemistry Instructor: Gail Grabner E-Mail: [email protected] Phone: 512-471-1982 Office: NMS 5.104 Office Hours: MW 1:00-2:00 pm TTH 11:00-Noon Office hours held in NMS 5.106 Overview BCH 369 is designed to provide the basics of protein structure and function, general metabolic pathways, and aspects of molecular biology. Course Goals We will be following a blended learning model including assignments before, during and after class. Most lecture material is included in pre-recorded videos, though there will be some lecturing in class. This model has proven especially helpful in learning this subject and is intended to help you divide the material in more bite-sized pieces. To get the most out of this opportunity, students are expected to participate in all required course activities. My goal for you is to not only learn biochemistry – but to learn HOW to learn – to learn to think critically. Requirements Prerequisites include one of the following (or equivalent) with a minimum grade of C-: Chemistry 310M, 318M, 320M, or 328M. 9 th edition of Campbell, Farrell, and McDougal with OWL access o Includes 14-day grace period Squarecap class response system o Free until 12 th class day Non-graphing calculator for all exams RESPECTFUL PARTICIPATION AND ATTITUDE TOWARD INSTRUCTOR, TEACHING ASSISTANTS, AND CLASSMATES.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
