ATTENDANCE POLICY: A failing grade for the entire four hours of Bio 120 will be given to any student who misses more than three laboratory sessions.  You must immediately consult with your laboratory instructor about any absences beyond your control.

TEXT: G. A. Dahlem & L. A. Ebersole  Experiences in Biology, 2011-2012.

GRADING: Your grade will be based on two laboratory practical exams (100 pts. each) and 11 quizzes (10 pts. each).  If you take all the quizzes, the last quiz will count as extra credit points.  There are no make-ups for quizzes. There are a total of 300 points available in lab.  Your laboratory grade makes up 25% of your final grade in Bio 120
