Here's a novel thought: instead of being taught as mindless, slavish dogma, evolutionary biologists have been busy in the last 150 years. They've been testing, retesting, modifying and in some cases rejecting aspects of Darwin's theory. This Power Point explains some of the major innovations, which (by the way) are all in the textbook:

Students who need to download the Power Point to complete their notes, and the Lecture Guide based on it, can do so here.

Students must finish these notes right away by completing the Lecture Guide, which has already been given (and partially completed) in class yesterday.   The Lecture Guide will be collected on the day of your final, Biology students, and treated as part of your notes.  Make sure it is completed!

ALSO....There is a Study Session TODAY (Thursday, June 6th) for the FINAL, in Room N-63, between 4:00 and 5:30. Students can earn extra credit in the course and receive helpful hints on how to proceed. Attendance is voluntary.

Biology students:   we are winding down the spring semester.   You will have one more lab ("Comparing Primates"), a  Lecture Guide, and then your final.

The Power Point Notes for Human Heredity are available here.

As your syllabus states, the STUDY SESSION for your Final in Biology is after-school, on Thursday, June 7th.   Students will receive a Study Guide prior to that time.   USE YOUR TIME WISELY.
