Lecture 2. August 31, 2009 Homework assignments for the week: LG 1 & 2; Ch 3 # 2, 4, 7 know structures of all 20 amino acids for Quiz 1 do entire PyMOL tutorial, LG pp 300-309 follow instructions exactly; we suggest that do the entire tutorial twice (!) 2. Buy the text and Lecture Guide. If Kraftees is out of Lecture Guides, you must tell them to order one for you. They will not order one unless you ask. 3. No review session this week. And the only office hours are the prof's, on Thursday 10AM - noon. Regular office hours and reviews start next week. 4. Biology "Open House" this Wed 9/2 in Stimson Hall 2 nd floor from 4 - 5:30PM. Get some pizza, meet some faculty, meet reps from Bio-related student organizations. 5. The grading system for this class: thanks ! to the students who came on Friday to figure this out! A. Quizzes are worth 25%, Midterm 35%, and Final 40%. Each exam is normalized by dividing by the mean. There are different versions of each quiz, and there is a make-up for the midterm and for the final, but the normalized scores can be compared. We intend for the median course grade to be a B+. If you got the mean on every test, you would get a B+ in the course. B. There will be a total of 10 quizzes during the semester. Each student should plan to take 9 . In other words, a student can miss one of the first 9 quizzes for ANY REASON (and no need to explain why!), then take the very last quiz, and still have 9 quizzes taken. Or, take all of the first 9 quizzes, and then do not take the very last one. Out of these 9 quizzes, the one lowest quiz grade will dropped (lowest score or one more missed quiz). C. A total of 9 quizzes can be taken ( 8 counted toward your grade) from among the 10 quizzes that will be offered . If you took fewer than 9 for any reason, then you would be eligible to take the "make-up quiz" on Wed 12/2 . (The subject matter of that make-up quiz will be the lectures of that week of the course, not the particular quiz that you missed). Thus, no student can take more than 9 quizzes, and 8 quizzes count toward the grade. D. If you miss more than two quizzes, see Prof. F. DO NOT see Prof. F. to explain why you missed any given quiz or even up to two quizzes (You could still take the
