2 Course Requirements The textbook, Biology , is the focus of this course. Students are responsible for the material presented in lecture, the textbook, and the laboratory exercise manual (as listed in the following schedule). Laboratory exercises are coordinated with lecture presentations and intended to illustrate ideas and structures described in lectures. Methods of Evaluation Students must be able to answer questions derived from the course objectives correctly, identify structures, and explain processes presented in the lectures and in the laboratory exercises. Four exams are scheduled during the weeks noted in the schedule (subject to change). Lecture exams will cover only the material presented since the previous exam. Each student will be allowed to drop one of the four in-class exams from his/her overall average (If no exam has been missed, the lowest grade will be dropped from the average). Homework assignments using MasteringBiology must be completed online. Quizzes will be given during lecture periods and the average quiz score will count as an additional exam score. It is the responsibility of the student to attend class and complete all requirements. In cases of excused absences, appropriate documentation must be submitted within a week of such an occurrence. Also, if a test or quizzed is missed due to unforeseen circumstances, the student must contact the professor by phone or email within 24 hours of the occurrence of the circumstance with proof of the circumstance.
