• WELCOME • COURSE SYLLABUS FOR BIOLOGY 1B Fall 2010 Cheating, Plagiarism or Keeping a Copy of a Midterm The students are not allowed to keep the midterms. The reason for this is to allow the instructors to use questions from previous exams. It is very difficult to write clear and meaningful multiple choice questions. If you leave the room with your exam, you will be considered cheating. Your GSI will explain what defines plagiarism. But the most common type is copying from the web and not carefully citing the source. A ‘cut and paste” without quotation marks is plagiarism. Also, paraphrasing a work without citations is plagiarism. BE CAREFUL. GOOGLE IS A VALUABLE RESOURCE TO DETECT PLAGARISM. Cheating is not only dishonest, it is stupid. If you are caught you will be reported to the Office of Student Conduct. Their standard procedure for dealing with first-time cheaters is: 1) An “F” in the class; 2). A letter in your file which identifies you as a cheater. This letter, upon request, will be sent to medical and graduate schools, employers, etc.); 3) Many hours of campus service and; 4) Risk of suspension or dismissal. It just isn’t worth it. Please read Warning to Cheaters in the Announcements on our web page. Enrolling in a Class Given at the Same Time as Biology 1B Lectures Since Biology 1B is web cast some students are tempted to enroll in another class given at the same time as our lectures (MWF 8-9 AM) and midterms (Fridays 6-7 PM). Biology 1B Final exam is on Monday, December 13, 7-10 PM. This is the same time as Biology 1A. Do not take Biology 1A or any other class in test group 4. You will not be given the tests at any other time than test day. THERE ARE NO LABS THE WEEK OF AUGUST 30 BUT THERE ARE DISCUSSIONS THAT WEEK. YOU MUST ATTEND DISCUSSION THE WEEK OF AUGUST 30 OR YOU WILL BE DROPPED. THERE ARE NO LABS OR DISCUSSIONS THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 6 DUE TO THE LABOR DAY HOLIDAY. THE LABS AND DISCUSSIONS START THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 13. YOU MUST ATTEND BOTH LAB AND DISCUSSION THAT WEEK OR YOU WILL BE DROPPED. IF YOU DO NOT GET INTO BIOLOGY 1B TRY BIOLOGY 1A. PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS A TWO WEEK DROP DEADLINE. PLEASE READ ENTIRE SYLLABUS BEFORE ASKING THE COORDINATOR QUESTIONS. Please become familiar with the web page ASAP. You will use it extensively in this class. ENROLLING INTO BIOLOGY 1B: Tele-Bears will be shut off on Friday, August 27.

    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.
