Tue. 3/3/15 --  BIOL 164 assignments for today:

After you finish Section Exam 4 today, enjoy the sunshine for a little while if you can...then, to prepare for tomorrow's (Wednesday's) lecture (and therefore get the most benefit from it), please beforehand read or at least skim most of Goodenough & McGuire Ch. 16, and read through most of my Ch. 16 lecture notes (they're posted below).  Thanks!

BIOL 164 Exam Protocols and Multiple Choice Tips

Here's an article that references a research study about a simple writing exercise to help reduce test anxiety.

 

Did you know that Clark's Career Center offers FREE Student Success Workshops on a variety of topics, including note-taking, reading for college success, test-taking tips, test anxiety, time management, stress management, multitasking, procrastination, and more?  Click here for their workshop schedule for Winter 2015...and if the workshop time you're interested in has already occurred, occurs too late in the quarter to be of any help to you for this quarter, or conflicts with your schedule, contact them to see if you can still at least get the information that they offer on each topic.

FREE science- and biology-specific tutoring (including for BIOL 164!) is offered in BHL 101/102.  Their phone number is 360.992.2694, and click here for the schedule.

 


Biology 165 Announcements

Tue. 3/3/15 -- One of your classmates created this study guide document, which has all the photos from the Lab Manuals with the labels blanked out.  She was thoughtful enough to share it, so you are welcome to use it if you find it helpful in your preparation for Lab Practical Exam 3!

First lab of week 9 (Tue. or Wed., 3/3 or 3/4/15) -- BIOL 165 assignments for today's lab:

* TODAY -- work together to finish Activity Sheet 8 if you haven't already.  Show it to me as soon as you get it done today for 10 points.  After everyone's finished Activity Sheet 8, you can grade yourself according to the key that is available in lab.  Keep in mind that Activity 8 will not cover every single special senses structure that you'll need to be able to identify on the next Lab Practical Exam -- that's what the Structure List is for.  So work together to identify, on the models and slides that are available in lab, ALL of the special senses structures on pp. 2-3 of your Structure List.  Use your resources, including the Special Senses Lab Manual (which can be downloaded here), the Essential Atlas of Anatomy (pp. 58-63), and the Goodenough and McGuire recommended lecture text (Ch. 9).   

* TODAY -- once you've got the special senses models and slides down, you can start to work together on Activity Sheet 9.  It's not due until the end of the next lab, so you don't need to finish it today, but do the best you can with the time you have.  When you do finish it, though, (whether this lab or next), show it to me for 10 points.  Keep in mind that Activity 9 will not cover every single urinary system structure that you'll need to be able to identify on the next Lab Practical Exam -- that's what the Structure List is for.  So work together to identify, on the models that are available in lab, all of the urinary system structures on pp. 3-4 of your Structure List.  Use your resources, including the Urinary System Lab Manual (which can be downloaded here), the Essential Atlas of Anatomy (pp. 68-71), and the Goodenough and McGuire recommended lecture text (Ch. 16).

* BEFORE your next lab -- review the nervous system, special senses, and urinary system structures that you've learned so far, and for each structure that has an asterisk (*) next to it on pp. 1-4 on the Structure List, look up one function for it.  To find functions, use the Central Nervous System, Special Senses, and Urinary System Lab Manuals (which can be downloaded here), or the Essential Atlas of Anatomy (pp. 52-71), or the Goodenough and McGuire recommended lecture text (Ch. 8, Ch. 9, and Ch. 16), or my BIOL 164 lecture notes (scroll up for the link).  Make a separate function list to help you study them.  

Second lab of week 8 (Thu. or Fri., 2/26 or 2/27/15) -- BIOL 165 assignments for today's lab and the weekend:

* TODAY -- work together to finish Activity Sheet 7 if you haven't already.  Show it to me as soon as you get it done today for 10 points.  After everyone's finished Activity Sheet 7, you can grade yourself according to the key that is available in lab.  Keep in mind that Activity 7 will not cover every single nervous system structure that you'll need to be able to identify on the next Lab Practical Exam -- that's what the Structure List is for.  So work together to identify, on the models that are available in lab, ALL of the central nervous system structures on pp. 1-2 of your Structure List.  Use your resources, including the Central Nervous System Lab Manual (which can be downloaded here), the Essential Atlas of Anatomy (pp. 52-57), and the Goodenough and McGuire recommended lecture text (Ch. 8).   

* TODAY -- once you've got the nervous system models down, start to work together on Activity Sheet 8.  Please note that I have pushed back the due date for Activity Sheet 8 until your first lab next week (Week 9).  Keep in mind that Activity 8 will not cover every single special senses structure that you'll need to be able to identify on the next Lab Practical Exam -- that's what the Structure List is for.  So work together to identify, on the models and slides that are available in lab, all of the special senses structures on pp. 2-3 of your Structure List.  Use your resources, including the Special Senses Lab Manual (which can be downloaded here), the Essential Atlas of Anatomy (pp. 58-63), and the Goodenough and McGuire recommended lecture text (Ch. 9).

* BEFORE your next lab -- review the nervous system and special senses structures that you've learned so far, and for each structure that has an asterisk (*) next to it on pp. 1-3 on the Structure List, look up one function for it.  To find functions, use the Central Nervous System and Special Senses Lab Manuals (which can be downloaded here), or the Essential Atlas of Anatomy (pp. 52-63), or the Goodenough and McGuire recommended lecture text (Ch. 8 and Ch. 9), or my BIOL 164 lecture notes (scroll up for the link).  Make a separate function list to help you study them.
