I will NOT have the BIO161 and CEM131 exams done by tomorrow. Yeah, yeah, I have heard it all, but frankly there is no rule or requirement that I get the exams back to you by the next class, that is a courtesy I try to extend to you when possible. Sometime the realities of life come into conflict of getting everything done. I will not bore you with the details but I decided to focus the limited time I had on finishing the new presentations for you. I’ll finish the exams over the weekend and you will have them before the break. I apologize, but frankly It is not the life crushing problem many of you will make it out to be.
In a related note, I am cancelling afternoon office hours for Thursday due to a family funeral.
The following are the guidelines and scoring rubric for the formal lab in BIO161.
