Soil, Serology and End of the semester!

We are nearing the end of the semester with only 2 due dates left! This semester has just flown by! As we finish up the semester, we will continue studying cool topics like soil analysis, serology, toxicology and DNA testing. In Forensics A, we continued our discussion on soil and glass this week in our synchronous session. I also put up a mystery of sorts in our news feed on our course page about a very unusual case that was solved using soil analysis techniques all without a body! Check it out if you haven't already! In Forensics AB, we talked about serology and we even got to play a blood typing game where we got to be the attending physician who was responsible for transfusing the correct blood type to each of our patients!

End of the semester already?!

Time flies...

It is hard to believe that we have less than a month left in this semester! With that, some students have expressed concerns about their grades not being as high as they would like them to be. I have reminded them about our optional extra credit project that they may complete. It is due by May 3 and all details are in our news feed on our course page. There may also be one more extra credit opportunity being posted for next week, so stay tuned! With only two due dates left, make sure that assignments are submitted on time so that late penalties are avoided. Every point counts at this stage of the semester!! As always, email or call with any questions or concerns!
