Class Format:

In class, students will join in a discussion of the highlights of each module. Students will come to class having attempted to fill in the note sheets I have made for each unit. This will guide the discussions and help us focus on clarifying the content. I will not require the entire modules to be read before class but instead will encourage the student to skim the book to fill in the note sheet. We will focus our class time on questions, clarification and labs including dissections.  After we have covered all the material for a module, I will assign a test. Some test will be taken in class while others will be given as homework.
