About SI for this Course

SI is an opportunity for you to work with your classmates to analyze and apply what you learned in lecture.

Each session will be 50 mins long and will include reviewing what was covered in the previous lecture with engaging activities to reinforce key concepts and problem-solving skills. SI sessions will also incorporate study strategies to prepare for exams.

I will not post answers to the worksheets, so come to the sessions and work them out together! If you have any questions or comments, please message me through the SI website. I look forward to sharing my passion for Biology with you!

Answer Keys to Missed Sessions

Hello Everyone!
I have gotten a lot of requests for answer keys for sessions that they missed. I am more than happy to send anyone who missed a session the key to the worksheet, but from now on, you must send me proof that you have attempted to complete the worksheet on your own before I will send you the key.
Most SI leaders don't even make the keys available to students even if they request it, but I am trying to help you guys out as much as possible and I know sometimes people aren't able to make a session.
You can send proof of completion to my email: toriwood@iastate.edu
Thanks for all your participation in sessions!
-Tori Wood
