METHODS OF PRESENTATION:
The instructor lectures utilizing the Bio 211 objectives, the Laboratory manual,
and handouts presented during class. Sections of material are assigned as
homework from the Crossword Review textbook as possible pop quizzes during
the lecture class. Laboratory models will be heavily utilized with extra study
time required in the Study Lab.

Grades are assigned as follows:
At least 3 lecture tests and 3 laboratory tests for a total of up to
60% of the final grade. (Small lab tests given weekly are averaged as one
Pop quizzes to count up to 20% of the final grade.
A cumulative final examination for up to 20% of the final grade.
A test that is not taken by the student shall be handled in the following manner:
A test that is not taken by the student shall be handled in the following manner:
1) A missed major lecture or laboratory test will be replaced by the final
UNCURVED examination score.
2) One missed pop quiz is dropped at the end of the semester. Up to two
additional missed pop quizzes will be replaced by the final UNCURVED
examination score. Any additional missed pop quizzes will remain a zero in
3) Weekly laboratory tests will be averaged to compose a major laboratory
test score. One missed weekly lab test will be dropped. Any other missed
weekly laboratory test will be counted as a zero.
4) Missing two major lecture and/or laboratory tests may result in the
withdrawal of the student from the class.
It is the belief of the Biology faculty that regular attendance to class is necessary
for student success. When a student is absent, it is the student’s responsibility
to obtain all notes, handouts, announcements, (including test dates), etc.
If a student is absent more than 10% of the contact hours prior to the last
withdrawal day for the semester, the student may be administratively withdrawn
by the instructor. A student should consult his or her instructor regarding that
instructor’s use of the administrative withdrawal policy. If a student desires to
appeal an instructor’s decision on administrative withdrawal, a petition must be
submitted to the head of the Biology Department prior to the last withdrawal
Major tests will be scheduled approximately one week in advance. Students
should not be absent from announced tests. The syllabus for each instructor’s
course includes policies for makeup of missed announced tests.
Each instructor will inform the students in writing at the first meeting of class
how the final grade for that particular course will be determined. The grading
scale for the Biology Department is the following:
A = 90.0 – 100 %
B = 80.0 – 89.9%
C = 70.0 – 79.9%
D = 60.0 – 69.9%
F = 59.9 or below
If after the withdrawal date but before final grades are turned in; a student, with
a passing grade, has personal or family circumstances which prevent the
student from completing the assignments in class then, upon approval of your
instructor, a grade of “I” may be given. It is the student’s responsibility to
contact and discuss the circumstances causing the need for the “I” grade with
the instructor prior to the end of the final exam period. A grade of “I” will not be
given unless the student requests and receives approval for the “I” grade from
the instructor. The unfinished assignments and tests causing the “I” must be
completed in a satisfactory manner before a date in the next term designated by
the instructor. Grades for any tests not taken before the designated date will be
assigned a grade of zero, the final course grade averaged, and the resultant
letter grade turned in to student records.
A student may register to audit a class at registration or during the drop/add
period. It is understood that the student will attend class and testing may be
required if audit is used for course validation.
A student may choose to withdraw from a course up until the designated last
withdrawal date for each semester. Students anticipating transfer to other
academic institutions should be informed that some institutions restrict
acceptance of transfer students with excessive withdrawals (this is typically
three withdrawals). IT IS THE STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY TO WITHDRAW
FROM THIS CLASS AND TO SUBMIT APPROPRIATE PAPERWORK TO
Academic dishonesty includes giving, receiving, or using unauthorized aid on
any academic work. It includes using notes, looking on papers of other students
and copying the work of other persons. The procedures for handling all matters
of academic dishonesty, especially cheating, is described in the Student
Handbook. You are expected to read and understand the procedures and
CARE OF DEPARTMENT EQUIPMENT:
Proper care of equipment is essential in the Biology Department. The
equipment used may be expensive or difficult to replace. Those who fail to take
care of equipment may be subject to disciplinary action and/or be barred from
participation in laboratory.
Any student who requests accommodation of special needs because of
disability must present documentation to verify his/her disability. Documentation
must be obtained from Ms. Jackie Bradham (AD 214, Phone: 250-8176).
Accommodation will be determined by the instructor and student, following
documentation, on a confidential basis and in a manner that is consistent with
the objectives, outcomes and academic quality of the course.
ACADEMIC GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE:
Inquiries and grievances of students concerning academic policies and/or
classroom procedures in a Biology Department course should be discussed and
resolved with the instructor. Student concerns will be addressed in a serious
and professional manner. If after discussion with the instructor, a problem is not
resolved, it should next be brought to the attention of the Department Head,
Dr. Susan O’Brien, AH 333C, (250-8360).
Eating, drinking, and the use of tobacco products are prohibited in classrooms
and laboratories. The use of headphones, cellular phones and beepers are
prohibited in classrooms (machines to be inactive) unless approved by the
instructor. Cellphones must be placed on quiet mode. If you must talk while the
instructor is teaching, please leave the room. You may quietly return within a
few minutes. If talking or behavior is considered disruptive by the instructor, you
may be asked to leave the classroom and may be marked absent for the day.
If, for any reason, you do not want to share concerns with me or you are
dissatisfied with my response to your comments, please contact any of the
people listed below.*
