BIO 211 – Introduction to Biology - Dr. Ann Petersen - OSU Cascades Week 1 Notes - September 22, 2016 Week 1 Lecture:  Professor Petersen introduced herself and the class.  Students were provided with the course syllabus and calendar, which is also available on Canvas. o Key points from Syllabus:  Required text – Campbell Biology – 9 or 10 Edition. In my experience having the book is very important. Lecture slides are very useful – but often exam and quiz questions are very similar to those used in the end of the chapters in the text book.  Lab attendance and lab etiquette are crucial. If a lab class is missed, there is no way to make it up. Also, if you and your lab partners fail to leave the laboratory without cleaning or tidying up, everyone in the group will receive a zero grade for the day. On lab assignments, each student must use their own words to answer the questions – do not copy from other sources or students. Plagiarism is very serious and students caught copying or cheating will be reported to the school.  Late work is accepted, however a 5% penalty (half a grade) will be issued for each day the assignment is late. Also-the assignment will not be accepted after the professor begins grading. So if she is on top of it and grading quickly, you might miss your chance to turn in your assignment.  No electronic devices allowed in lab or lecture. A tablet or laptop may be used for notes during lecture, but using other applications not related to in-class assignments or notes is absolutely not allowed.  Grading:  Midterm and Final exams – 100 points each Phyla Presentations – 50 points Attendance – 50 points Attitude – 20 points Labs – 80 points Clicker/IFAT questions – 50 points Simbio Exercises – 50 points  A slide presentation with short videos was shown, explaining a brief introduction to biology. o This explained what the study of biology is, its importance and key researchers like Charles Darwin who have shaped biology and defined evolution.  QT Clickers and IFAT quizzes were distributed with instructions. QT Clicker registration instructions are on Canvas with the presentation and short videos PDF file.  All files for this first day are found on Canvas under the Files tab.
