From your PAWS desktop, you can access MOODLE for your section, where the class notes, review
sheets, grades, and other information will be posted.
Be sure to check this page regularly, as I will make
announcements this way.
Your grade in BIOL 2153 will be based on quizzes, homework assignments, regular exams, and a final
If you miss a quiz or an exam, there will NOT BE any make-ups offered since you are allowed to
drop your lowest quiz score and also your lowest exam score (excluding the final exam).
The quizzes and exams will be based on the topics discussed in lecture and on the assigned readings.
Questions will not be word-for-word from the text or notes, so be sure you understand the concepts.
The lecture is designed to follow and complement the book chapters, and some of the lecture material
may not be in the text.
Also, all material in the assigned reading, even if it was not discussed in class,
may appear on the exams.
The class notes we take during each lecture are designed to be an aid to note
taking, not a substitute for listening to the lecture.
You will be responsible for all of the information
discussed in class, even if it is not outlined in the class notes.
It is essential that you attend each class
If you miss a class, I suggest that you get the notes from a classmate and discuss any questions
that you may have about the material with me afterwards.
