(Revised 7/24/05) *An outline of lecture material intended for the first half of Foundations of Biological Sciences - I. This Study Guide covers the first portion of BioSci-150. Based on lecture notes from the last time the course was offered, it is available online on D2L (to registered students; instructions for use will be provided). The outline focuses on important concepts in the course and should guide you through the more comprehensive coverage in the Biological Science textbook by Scott Freeman. While some of material may not be covered in class, and some material covered in class may not appear in the Guide, each guide summarizes the essential information and references illustrations in the textbook. Important terms/concepts are highlighted. Each section ends with challenge questions and sample multiple choice test questions (answers to the latter are provided on D2L in time for exams). Here are some ideas on how to organize and large amounts of information presented in an introductory biology course and textbook: . Read the assigned pages for a topic before each lecture. Focus on major concepts and jot down anything you find especially interesting. Save major note-taking and highlighting for later! . Look at this Guide after reading the assigned text pages and re-read the text if you have time. Do not use a high lighter yet! 3. Since the PowerPoint presentations for this lecture are made available in advance, consider printing them @ 3 per page (as shown at the right). This will leave ample space to the right of each slide for you to take notes in class. 4. After class, use the material covered in this Guide to recapture what was discussed during the lecture. Fill in gaps and add to your notes as appropriate. If you recorded the lectures, now is the time to review your tapes. 5. Look up information covered in lecture and in the Guide (also, related information) in the appropriate pages in the text. If you are going to, now is the time to use your high lighter. Add any comments to your lecture notes that you think will help you understand the material presented. 6. Write questions you have about lecture/lecture outline/text material on your note pages. Then, get the answers from the instructor, the text, outside reading, etc. 7. Best advice: form study groups ; go over lecture materials. Meet often to study for exams. * Lecture Notes for the second half of the class should also posted on D2L.
