Once topic notes are done, fill in Table of Contents with Topic & Page #. 8/28/2014 11:12:00 PM Ex: UNIT 2 - BIOCHEMISTRY 1. Water properties 2. Biological Macromolecules 3. Metabolism & Enzymes GRADE: ____________ NO LATE NOTEBOOKS. I WILL CHECK FOR EFFORT AND COMPLETENESS IN ALL AREAS OF THAT UNIT. Scoring: Spiral notebooks are graded upon sufficient coverage of each lecture topic/heading, effective incorporation of textbook and video notes, neatness/organization, unit objectives, and labeled diagrams and figures chosen.
