Biology 1001 is a General Education Course and is designed to address the following General Education Outcomes: An
appreciation of the methods of critical inquiry and a comprehension of how knowledge is acquired and applied.
From your PAWS desktop, you can access the MOODLE link for your section, where the class notes, review
sheets, grades, and other information of note will be posted.
Be sure to check this page regularly, as I will
make announcements this way.
The 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 format for the exams is
generally multiple choice, matching, true/false, labeling pictures/diagrams, etc. 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 (generally a few questions
on each exam from material found only in the reading).
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.
I do not post my completed class notes on MOODLE
, so it is essential that you attend each
class meeting. 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.
There will be four exams taken in this class. Each exam will consist of approximately 60-100 questions
(multiple choice, matching, true/false, concept mapping, picture identification, etc.). You will be able to
calculate your grade in the class at any time and can also access this information in MOODLE.
