Biology I B: Week 2 Update

5 week Summer 2019

This Week's Focus: Evolution

We will begin (and finish!) our study of Evolution and begin our study of Taxonomy this week. More information about the content, the location of each handout, and helpful hints for each assignment can be found in Evolution Course Resources and Taxonomy Course Resources.


If you haven't been getting the grades you hoped for on your assignments, think about what you can do differently:

  • Are you logging on to the live Jigsaw sessions or watching the recordings?
  • Are you spending the suggested 5-7 hours per day on Biology?
  • Are you contacting me and asking for help if you do not understand something?

If you aren't doing ALL of these things, try doing them and see if your grade improves. It's worth a shot! And do not wait until the last minute to complete (or start) your assignments, as they take some time to do, especially the labs.


As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me:
