Supplies You MUST HAVE for Class:

Textbook and Questions ( Campbell Biology, Ninth Edition)
You have received the Campbell Biology textbook.  You should bring the textbook home and READ it.  There are a few textbooks in the classroom to use during class so they will be there for you to reference during in-class assignments.  It is VERY IMPORTANT that  you read/outline/understand the textbook at home to complement the work done in class. 

For each Chapter/Topic, a set of questions on the Mastering Biology website will be assigned for you to complete.  The assignment will not be graded but I will be able to see your progress, which questions you had to "use up" all your "guesses" for, etc.   I will look at your progress to see which questions you are having the most difficulty with and will go over those questions in class. Many of the Chapter Test questions will come from the questions assigned.
