2 Course description Biology 325H is the second course in a two-semester honors sequence that integrates a sophisticated survey of introductory biology with a rigorous analysis of upper-division genetics. The purpose of this course sequence is to provide incoming UT freshmen with an accelerated pathway for getting into upper- division biology coursework. Registration is restricted to students who have completed Biology 315H with a grade of C or better. Successful completion of Biology 325H meets the prerequisite for virtually all of UT’s other upper-division biology classes. Exams and grading There will be a total of 400 points awarded for classwork. The general breakdown will be: Final examination 160 Midterm exams (2) 200 In-class exercises 40 400 There will be three scheduled midterm examinations. Each midterm will primarily test the material covered since the previous exam. Midterms will have a maximum score of 100 points, and only the two best scores will be counted towards the final grade, i.e. the lowest of your three midterm exam grades will be dropped. There will be no makeup of midterm exams; if you miss a midterm exam for any reason , that is the one you will drop. Should you miss a second midterm exam, you must provide documented evidence that this absence was beyond your reasonable control, e.g. you were ill or there was a death in your family. The final exam will count for 160 points,
