Vliet ( [email protected] ), 208 Carr Hall, 392-8130. REQUIRED TEXT : Vliet, K.A., 2012. 2011L: A Laboratory Manual for Integrated Principles of Biology II, Second Edition . Hayden-McNeil Publishing, Plymouth, Michigan. 261 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%, A- 86.7, B+ 83.3%, B 80.0%, B- 76.7, C+ 73.3%, C 70.0%, C- 66.7, D+ 63.3%, D 60.0%, D- 56.7, E < 56.7%. There is no A+. 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. 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.
