Exam 1 on Tuesday

Our first exam is week, covering chapters 22, and 2-5 (proteins only in ch. 5). Study well.

Grades for the first iClicker quiz and the first scores for homework are uploaded on the Grades page.


For my laboratory sections:

When we return to lab you will need to provide a minimum of three sources for the review paper you are working on this semester.

This is probably the most important part of the entire process. Spend time finding good sources, and don't just set them aside and assume you'll read them later. Make sure they will be worthwhile now.

I do not want the actual papers. I want you to provide me the citations of your sources in APA format. Something similar to the example to the right:

Second Week Finished

The second week is over. The lecture notes for this week are uploaded in the notes section of the website.

  • On Sunday the second homework assignments are due. As discussed at length this past week, the homework is performed on the ‘Mylab and Mastering’ site that is accessed through the Canvas shell for your BIOL 196 lecture. Be sure to register by this weekend (instructions). There is also a 14-day free trial.

  • Next week the labs begin. Be sure to visit the laboratory page to print out the first exercise to bring with you to lab. You will need it.

  • We registered the iClickers this week. Not every week, but do check this site on Sundays to see if there is an assignment for iClickers that will usually be at the beginning of class.


If you know that your iClicker didn't register properly, can you please send me an email with your name, the class you are in (224, obviously, but I teach other classes), and the number on the back of your iClicker.

The number is below the bar code - see the image below.
