Philosophy
It is my sincere hope and goal that this be a productive learning experience for all
my students as well as for me. Especially considering the brisk pace of a summer
course, please ask questions if I begin to loose you in class. I\u2019m also available
during office hours and via email to help with questions.
Tips for Success
\ue000Ask questions in class\u2013 it makes class more interesting for
everyone and will help you learn. I will allow 10 minutes at the
beginning of each class for questions on the last class.
\ue000Preview chapters before class\u2013 focus on Concepts (used as
section titles) and diagrams
\ue000 Do the assignments\u2013 test questions will be similar to these. I will
only test you on material that was covered in class or lab as well as
on an assignment.
\ue000 To the degree possible, adjust your schedule to allow plenty of time
for reading and thinking about course material. Digesting new
information takes time and energy \u2013 it\u2019s just a fact of biology.
\ue000Form a study group\u2013 two brains are usually better than one.
\ue000Ask questions\u2026 I\u2019m here to help!
The Rules andRe g \u2019s

Your written work (tests and labs) must be uniquely your own. You may
work with a study buddy on labs and assignments, but unless directed otherwise,
you need to submit your own work.
