Lecture 2. August 28, 2006 1. Reading assignment for the week: pp 75-88, 96-97, 106-110 Homework assignments for the week: LG 1 & 2; Ch 3 # 2, 4, 7 know structures of all 20 amino acids do entire RasMol tutorial, LG pp 289 - 293 follow instructions exactly; we suggest that you do the entire tutorial twice (!) 2. Buy the text and Lecture Guide. If Kraftees is out of Lecture Guides, you must tell them to order one for you. They will not order one unless you ask. 3. The grading system for this class: thanks to the students who came on Friday to figure this out! A. Quizzes are worth 30%, Midterm 30%, and Final 40%. Each exam is normalized by dividing by the mean. There are different versions of each quiz, and there is a make-up for the midterm and for the final, but the normalized scores can be compared. At this time, we intend for the mean course grade to be a ~ B+. If you got the mean on every test, you would get a B+ in the course. B. Two quiz grades will dropped (lowest scores or missed quizzes). C. A total of 9 quizzes can be taken ( 7 counted toward your grade). If you took fewer than 9 for any reason, then you would be eligible to take the "make-up quiz" on Wed 11/30. (The subject matter of that make-up quiz will be the lectures of that week of the course, not the particular quiz that you missed). Thus, no student can take more than 9 quizzes, and 7 quizzes count toward the grade. D. If you miss more than three quizzes, see Prof. F. DO NOT see Prof. F. to explain why you missed any given quiz or even up to three quizzes (You could still take the make-up quiz and thereby have the necessary 7 quizzes). E. If the final exam grade is higher than the average of (Q + MT), i.e. your grade going into the final, then the final exam grade will be your final course grade. F. If you would like to have the quizzes and exams returned to you in privacy, let Prof. F. know, and special arrangements will be made for you. Otherwise, return is "semi- private" in class but fast. If in doubt, see how the first quiz comes back to you. Then, if you don't like the system, let us know. G. See Prof. F. NOW with any special problems. Do not wait until the last possible moment. Send e-mail to gwf3, not to bio331 if you want to reach the prof.
