Grades will be assigned on the basis of your performance on frequent quizzes and two exams in each of the two portions of the course (animal biology and plant biology), and your laboratory work, as follows:
Lecture exams and quizzes will consist of a mixture of multiple true/false and short essay questions,
Lecture notes and reading assignments are subject to change.
The assigned reading is considered the minimum required. Students should plan on using the Glossary and the Index in Freeman.
