I was thinking about your quiz for chapter 9 (inheritance) and how it may be too much too soon. Let’s make sure that we complete the chapter before we take the quiz. I have made the decision to move it to thursday 10/23.
The exam (exam 3) will be on 10/28 and will cover chapters 8-10 only (Ch 13 we decided will be tested at a later time and will count for 25% of the exam 3 grade or 25 points).
Also I have been checking attendance in lab and lecture based on quizzes taken/missed. We have been advised to exclude students based on the number of class hours per week; and in my case I may exclude a student who miss more than 6 hours of class time (4 missed class periods). Several students are beginning to miss multiple classes and I must advise you to be careful in missing more lecture or labs. I will be asked to participate in this secondary exclusion very soon and will do so based on attendance.
Just a reminder that this thursday we have a lecture quiz on chapter 8.
We still may shift the lecture quiz on chapter 9 back – not sure yet and possibly exam 3 part I ( Ch 8-10) to 10/28. Let’s talk on Thursday!
Print your study guides for chapter 10 (there are 2 separate files; one for ch 10 parts 1 & 2 and another for ch 10 part 3) to study for the lecture quiz on Tuesday.
Use the lecture study guide for part 1 and 2 to study for your lab quiz on Monday.
Noe : I just posted the chapter 10 part 3 and ch 8 study guides today.

For lab 3 (pg 41-45) do the following activities:
A, B, D (reading has the answer: describe three differences ; the compound mic. is this…, while the dissecting mic. is this…), E, F, an H.
I (activity I) we can do for extra-credit: look up the bacteria specimens on page 45 on-line and draw them in the space provided; not their shape and how organized (read the lab book starting on pg. 37: lab 3 part 2). I will give you two weeks to turn this in.
