TR 11:00-12:15 a.m.
Cameron Williams Lecture Hall, Plant Science Building
Description: This three-credit course is intended to provide a basic understanding of the natural products and processes that shape the nature of modern plants, and govern their interactions with the environment and with other living organisms. We focus on the structural and biochemical characteristics unique to plants, and develop a basic understanding of how these plant attributes relate to organismic function. Also, we will cover reproduction in flowering plants via seeds, and discuss the general morphology and structure of the basic plant parts and how they grow.
Evaluation: Student performance will be based upon 400 points. The 400 points will come from four 3-hour exams (100 points each). A= 400-360; B= 359-320; C= 319-280; D= 279-240; E= 239 and below.
Exams: The exams will cover material given in lecture and specific reading assignments. The exams will be multiple-choice (computer-graded). Please note, however, that make-up exams may be mostly fill-in-the-blank and/or short essay questions.
No extra credit assignments: There will not be any opportunities to do extra assignments to help pull up your average.
Student Code: Students are expected to abide by the Student Code; thus, cheating will not be tolerated.
