All students enrolled in BIO 3302 must also enroll in a workshop (BIO 3102)2. The grade for BIO 3102 will be determined by a combination of attendance and homework grades, and it will be worth 10% of the overall grade given for BIO 3302. The same letter grade will be assigned for both the lecture and workshop components of the course. Do not blow off the workshop- it can drop your grade in the lecture part of the course (BIO 3302) from an A to a B, or from a B to a C, etc. if you do poorly in the workshop. Homework assignments must be submitted on time to get credit. Do not attend workshops other than the one you are registered in without prior permission of the instructor. The same grade will be assigned for both BIO 3301 and BIO 3302. If you drop the course, you must drop both 3302 and 3102. There will be five exams given in BIO 3302: Three exams by Dr. Robinson, two by Dr. Burr. You may drop the lowest exam score of the three by Dr. Robinson. Each of the remaining four exams will then be worth 22.5% of the final grade. The remaining 10% of your grade is from the workshops- homeworks, etc. Scoring on the exams is done by the Teaching Assistants, but the Instructor determines in advance what key points must be included in each answer to get full credit. The Instructor checks your scores after the TA has graded the exams, and assigns letter grades. Your exam papers will not be returned, but you may view your corrected exam in the workshops, and the answers will be discussed in the workshops. Grades course notes and other course information will be posted on the course web page: (http://www.utdallas.edu/biology/undergraduates/latest.html). Find BIO 3302 on the list, and click on the instructor’s name (Robinson or Burr). If you have questions about the grading or your performance in an exam, please see the instructors as soon as possible. Although letter grades may be provided after each exam, these should be treated only as a reflection of your performance. The final course grade will be based not on these individual letter grades, but on the total of the scores of all four exams and the homework. DO NOT MISS THE EXAMS. Makeup exams will be given only in case of a documented emergency and will be MORE DIFFICULT than the regularly scheduled exam. You must contact the Instructor within 24 hours of the missed exam.

All students enrolled in BIO 3302 must also enroll in a workshop (BIO 3102). If for any reason you decide to drop the BIO 3302, you must also drop BIO 3102!
