BSC 2011L - Integrated Principles of Biology II L ABORATORY S YLLABUS Spring 2010 LOCATION OF LABORATORIES : B-11 and B-22 Bartram Hall BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES OFFICE: 220 Bartram Hall, 392-1175 COORDINATOR: Dr. Kent A. Vliet ( [email protected] ), 208 Carr Hall, 392-8130. REQUIRED TEXT : Vliet, K.A., 2011. 2011L: A Laboratory Manual for Integrated Principles of Biology II, First Edition . Hayden-McNeil Publishing, Plymouth, Michigan. 243 pp. RECOMMENDED TEXT : Van De Graaf, Kent M., and Crawley, John L. 2005. Photographic Atlas for the Biology Laboratory, 6 th edition . Morton Publishing Company, Englewood, Colorado. 280 pp. HOME PAGE : www.bsc.ufl.edu/2011L.html E-LEARNING : https://lss.at.ufl.edu/ LAB SUPPLIES : Dissecting kit (small probe and seeker, fine dissecting scissors, fine point forceps, scalpel with replaceable blade, teasing needles). The Campus Shop, the Florida Bookstore, and University Book and Supply should carry good kits with these items. All of these supplies must be furnished by the student . They will not be available in lab. GRADING : Your BSC 2011L grade will be based on raw scores from quizzes, practicals, data sheets and prelabs. Specific assignments are detailed in a point breakdown sheet provided with this syllabus. Quizzes generally cover material from the previous lab exercise as well as assigned readings for the present lab. Final letter grade will be assigned based on percentage of the total points earned, using the following cutoffs: A 90.0%, B+ 85.0%, B 80.0%, C+ 75.0%, C 70.0%, D+ 65.0%, D 60.0%, E < 60%. These cut-offs may be lowered at the discretion of instructors, but they will not be increased. Scores will not be rounded (i.e., 89.9% is not 90%). Current UF grading policies for assigning grade points can be found at: http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/catalog/policies/regulationgrades.html . READING ASSIGNMENTS : You should review fully each laboratory assignment prior to the laboratory period. In most cases you will be unable to complete the observations and experiments fully and efficiently during the lab period unless you know exactly what is to be done before you walk into the laboratory. Reading assignments are included in this syllabus. Weekly quizzes and practicals are based partially on the reading assignments. NIGHT LABS : Students registered in period 11-E2 lab sections may be required to attend one Saturday morning (9:35 a.m. – 12:35 p.m.) lab session during the semester. ACCOMMODATIONS : Students requesting classroom accommodation must first register with the Dean of Students Office. The Dean of Students Office will provide documentation to the student who must then provide this documentation to the Instructor when requesting accommodation. BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES PROGRAM POLICY ON ACADEMIC INTEGRITY All students are expected to do their own work. The Biological Sciences Program upholds the Academic Honesty Guidelines of the University of Florida. The taking of information by means of copying homework assignments, working together with another individual(s) on such assignments, or looking or attempting to look at another student's paper during an examination is considered dishonest.

    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.
