About SI for this Course

Welcome to BIOL 313 Supplemental Instruction!

This course is tough for many and SI is a great resource to help you reach your academic potential. Working in groups, you'll develop a more complete understanding of the topics covered in lecture and be better prepared for the quizzes and exams. We'll use worksheets to organize the SI sessions and these will be projected, though if you want a printed copy you'll have to bring one yourself.

Each session will be 50 minutes and will cover material discussed previously in class. An answer key will not be posted online, however; if you complete the worksheet by yourself and send that worksheet to me, I'll send back a personalized answer key. Exam reviews will be two hour sessions scheduled in the week before the exam and those will have answer keys posted.

Let me know if you have any questions! I look forward to meeting you this semester!


Thursday Session

Hey 313!

We will have a session this Thursday (11/16/2017) from 7:10 to 8:00 PM in Carver 0174. We'll be covering epigenetics and reviewing meiosis and sexual reproduction in the context of the transmission genetics section we're entering.

There are to be no SI sessions over Thanksgiving break, though I will try to get special permission to hold a review session on Sunday since the quiz will be on Monday. More will be posted about that.

Let me know if you have questions!
