CHE 105/107 Midterm Grades

It was brought to our attention on Monday that the Canvas gradebooks for CHE 105 and 107 did not have the correct weights for individual components of student grades. The weights were adjusted to match the percentages in the syllabus and midterm grades on myUK were updated. Exams are a higher percentage of course grades but were being counted equally with other items, this resulted in the midterm grade on myUK dropping to a lower grade for many students.

BIO 580/002 - Buds&Brains: Neuroscience of Pollination

Students will need to enroll in BIO 580 (section 002) which is a special topics section. The new course may be officially on the books by the start of the semester, and then students will be transferred over to the new listing (ENT/BIO 509. This is a 3-credit lecture course. We will meet Tuesday/Thursday from 2:00-3:15pm in THM 108.

This is a new course covering broad topics. It will likely have a lot of new material for everyone, so undergraduates should not hesitate to take it!
