ADVICE FOR THE FIRST DAY and after

 

READ AND BE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING:

 

Welcome to Biology!  As a student of biology you will be working with some Chemistry and MATH!  Does that scare you?  Don’t let it.  We will be working together so that any of you who really want to, will be able to do the math AND understand biololgy.  We will do it in a fun way.  You have an excellent textbook full of examples and practice problems.  You will also have the advantage of the resources from the WEB that I have found to be useful over the last 4 years.  You will see these resources under the “Web Helps” link on my home page.  You will see them under Chapter 2, (Measurements and Calculations).  For now, hold on to your seat.  We will waste no time getting going!

 

This first day your background materials will come mostly from the web and my lectures.  You will not receive a textbook to take home with you until Friday of the first week.  YOU MUST HAVE ACCESS TO A COMPUTER WITH A PRINTER and be able to access the internet.  If you do not have those tools, YOU MUST DO ONE OF THESE THREE THINGS:

1.   Come to our classroom in the morning, at break, or after school to get what you will need from the internet using our classroom computers.  Homework and materials you will have to print are on my web site!

2.   Visit a library every day to get what you need.

3.   Make 2 or more friends in this class who have both a computer and printer, and share their computer.

 

You will get all assignments on-line and are personally responsible for them.  www.mrwiggersci.com/bio  is your website where you will find excellent background material on the subjects we will be studying.  Each week’s homework page has a summary chart at the top.  That will give you how many school days we have had so far in the school year, chapter & chapter section numbers we are studying each day, the day's homework assignment (whether it will be turned in or stamped and when it will be due) and what we will be doing in class each day.

 

STUDY BUDDIES

 

You need to make at least 2 friends in this class.  Get your friends’ phone numbers and meet with them after school at least once a week.  Help each other in understanding the material as we go.  We will usually have a quiz or test every week.  We will have labs about every other week.  Biology builds from the very first day through the last day in June.  It must be learned “as you go”, not the night before the final!!!
