Biology 230—p. 1 N. Kapp —Fall 2011 WELCOME TO THE BIOLOGY 230 LABORATORY! Philosophy Laboratory experiments are intended to supplement and reinforce the basic principles you are learning in this class. A second, major purpose is to help you develop your problem-solving skills and manual dexterity with lab techniques. A third purpose is to show your soft skills like general preparedness, honesty and how well you interact with your fellow students. While you are not specifically evaluated on these skills, I do take them in consideration when I am writing letters of recommendation. The basic lab techniques you will learn in this class will be applicable to all biology-related professions including medicine, agriculture, biotechnology, animal behavior, and ecology. Participation and attendance Your direct participation is necessary at all labs. A direct measure of your presence and participation will be assayed at all lab meetings, as well as open labs. When students must be absent because of illness or emergencies they should contact the instructor as soon as possible. A student may be dropped for missing two laboratory periods. Responsibility for making up work missed because of absence rests with the student. Bio 230 only has one lab a week and no make up opportunities exist. The Grade of W You may wish to withdraw from this class. If you withdraw prior to 9-9-11 nothing will appear on your record. If you withdraw between 9-9-11 and 11-15-11, a W will appear on your transcript. You will receive a W for exceeding two absences prior to 11-15-11. Please see your instructor for help in determining your grade before making a decision to withdraw.

    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.
