Additional resources: Syllabus, lecture schedule, and lecture slides are available on Blackboard site. In addition, the Blackboard site will be used to post announcements and grades. Tutorial sessions: Mondays at 3 pm, MR 1005. Students must registrar on-line via the CCAPP office located on the plaza level. Walk-ins ok, but strongly encouraged to pre-registrar. Writing Center (http://www.ccny.cuny.edu/writing/) The CCNY Writing Center offers one-on-one assistance for students working on writing assignments and projects from across the disciplines. Location: The CCNY Writing Center @ The Samuel Rudin Academic Resource Center, NAC Building, Amsterdam Ave Plaza, 3rd floor South. Tel: 212-650-8104 Attendances: Lectures and labs will begin promptly on schedule and latecomers are responsible for any missed material. If you miss the laboratory due to illness or extenuating circumstances, please notify lab instructor immediately. Unexcused absence from any lab will result in a grade of zero for that lab. If need to switch labs due to approved excuses, you must obtain permission from lab instructor to sit-in another lab section. Anyone with more than two absences from lab without prior arrangement will be dropped from the course. There will be no make-up exams for lecture or quizzes for lab. If you miss an exam or lab quiz due to extenuating circumstances (a letter from the appropriate university official or a documented medical excuse) your other exam/quiz grades will be adjusted accordingly. Unexcused absence from any exam/quiz will result in a grade of zero for that exam/quiz. Laboratory: Always bring lab manual to the lab. It is essential that you read and understand the lab material before each lab. Some parts of the lab manual have been eliminated or revised and instructor will notify you at the beginning of each lab. Evaluation of your performance in the lab will be based on your participation, the two lab quizzes, and two written scientific lab reports. All written lab assignments are due at the beginning of lab. For all written assignments, a printed, typed copy of the lab assignment is due. Electronic copies will not be accepted unless previous arrangements have been made with the instructor. You may not copy any part of somebody else’s written lab work (this is plagiarism); this is an automatic grade of a zero for the lab report and a report will be filed with the Office of the Academic Integrity Official to document such cases.


Laboratory safety rules: Please read the laboratory safety rules carefully. Your instructor will provide additional information if necessary. Anybody entering a biology laboratory must abide by these rules. Basic rules are as follows: 1. There is no eating or drinking in lab. 2. Must wear appropriate attire at all times. No open-toe shoes, hair pulled back, and legs covered (no shorts). 3. All coats, purses, and backpacks must be stored under the bench or the entrance of the lab. Academic integrity: The CCNY policy on academic integrity will be followed. Document is posted on Blackboard as well as the CCNY website (CUNY policy on academic integrity—link is at the bottom of the home page) or http://web.cuny.edu/academics/info-central/policies/academic-integrity.pdf. Make sure you have read the details regarding plagiarism and cheating, in case you are not clear about the rules of the college. Cases where academic integrity is compromised will be prosecuted according to these rules.
