TO STUDENTS: IN
SUMMER BIOLOGY: THE FOLLOWING ASSIGNMENTS ARE FOR YOU TO DO IN THE CLASSROOM. THERE
ARE VARIOUS ACTIVITIES THAT I WILL HAVE YOU DO OUTSIDE OF THE CLASSROOM TO
PREPARE FOR UPCOMING STUDIES AND THE SECOND SEMESTER. YOU WILL BE
REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN ALL ACTIVITIES WITH THE GROUP. MY OBJECTIVE IS TO
BALANCE THIS CLASS WITH HANDS-ON ACTIVITIES THAT WILL HELP YOU LEARN THE
CONCEPTS. YOU WILL GAIN A BETTER UNDERSTANDING BY FOLLOWING ALL ACTIVITIES

would like you to do outside of the classroom this week:
Week 3 (June 18th-June22nd)- After this week we will be at the midpoint and should have completed the first semester of this course. Some labs may carry-over into week 4. I will add and update this webpage as we go.
