Expect email replies to short messages within 48 hrs if BIOL13100 is in your email subject line. @ontactin, you : Assignments will be delivered by Blackboard, and occasionally by email. You are required to have an active, working email account. In the event of a major campus emergency, course requirements, deadlines and grading percentages are subject to changes that may be necessitated by a revised semester calendar or other circumstances beyond the instructor’s control. For example, a class meeting may be conducted remotely using Blackboard tools in the case of a weather emergency. Any information about changes in this course will be sent to your Purdue email. You are responsible for making sure your inbox is not filled up and can accept mail and attachments from me or TAs. You must keep your university records up to date, with messages forwarded to your current email address if you do not use your Lpurdue.edu account. @our?e =ormat : 3- 50 min lectures MWF 10:30-11:20 am in Lilly 1-105. @#AB7C /[email protected]#FG Principles of development of plants and animals and the relationship between the structure and function of selected systems of these organisms. The underlying cellular and molecular basis for these processes will be emphasized. In particular, the transport of molecules and small ions through biological membranes will be studied. This will require an understanding of membrane structure, diffusion, electrical potentials and other physical and chemical principles. In addition to the specific topics covered, homework assignments will ask you to connect what you learn to both current and historical research endeavors, to prepare you for further study in the Department of Biological Sciences. BIOL 13100 is the second course in the Biological Sciences Core sequence, and most students are biology majors. Well-prepared students from other areas are welcome, assuming that they plan to take the second year of the core (BIOL 27000 and 28000). BIOL 12100 and 13100 are not intended as a terminal two-semester sequence. @#AB7C HC!7ITCG Get lecture materials and keep up with assignments on Blackboard. PBCBCQAI7ITC7G There are no pre-requisites but you should at least be enrolled in your math and chemistry courses. If your math or chemistry background is weak, plan to spend extra time on your own to make up for deficiencies before you do the course assignments.

What students are saying

    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.
