This week, we wrap up the very last topic in BIO 201. Good work for hanging in
there! In addition to completing your first exposure to the information on special
senses, you'll need to get started on the online portion of the final exam (I will give
you further details about this during class). Make good use of this time to engage in
distributed practice.
 You will find the online portion of the final exam in this folder. It will not
be visible until AFTER you attend class this week.
 Study an hour or two each day from now until the final exam and you will
be better prepared than if you cram.
Take the weekly quiz over the content from weeks 15 and 16 (due Sunday
before midnight)

Hey! You really ARE in the home stretch now! There's only one more week of new
content after this one! Since we're getting close to the end of the semester and I
know you want to dedicate some time to reviewing material from units 1-4 for the
comprehensive part of the exam, I have only a couple other things for you to do
this week:
 Complete your first exposure with the material BEFORE your come to class this
week (you can do this by: completing the audio/visual lectures or listening to the
podcasts or by reading the relevant chapter(s) in your textbook-- use whichever
approach works best for you).
 No online quiz this week--next week you will take your final online quiz which
covers both general and special senses (due Sunday before midnight)
 Keep working on the OPTIONAL review quiz (see last of the muscle learning units)
that has you go over concepts from all previous units and helps you prepare for
the upcoming comprehensive final exam. You will NOT lose any points if you
decide not to take this optional practice quiz.

Here's the week when you'll learn about the fight-or-flight responses that makes
your heart rate, your mouth dry and your body sweat. Fight-or-flight responses,
along with several others, are the domain of the autonomic nervous system, which
we'll learn about this week. We're also going to examine some of the basic parts of
the central nervous system. Here's all that you'll do:
 Complete your first exposure with the material BEFORE your come to
class this week (you can do this by: completing the audio/visual
lectures or listening to the podcasts or by reading the relevant
chapter(s) in your textbook-- use whichever approach works best for
you).

You'll be happy to know that some of the information you just learned about action
potentials and the neuromuscular junction is some of the same information you'll

 Complete your first exposure with the material BEFORE your come to class
this week (you can do this by: completing the audio/visual lectures or
listening to the podcasts or by reading the relevant chapter(s) in your
textbook—use whichever approach works best for you). Complete muscle
expert group presentations in class this week.

Week 8--Oct. 6-12--Muscles 1
ACTIVATE ON: 10/3/2008.
Bones help lend support to your body and protect it. The skeletal muscles which
attach to the bones are what allow the bones to move and thus get you from point
A to point B. How muscles contract or shorten is a complex process which we will
explore this week and next. Here's what you'll accomplish this week in BIO 201:
 Complete your first exposure with the material BEFORE your come to class this
week (you can do this by: completing the audio/visual lectures or listening to
the podcasts or by reading the relevant chapter(s) in your textbook—use
whichever approach works best for you).
 Weekly online quiz to complete
 Start working on the muscle review worksheet (due for initials during week
10)
 Have you been working on your Wiki Why? Remember you can look at
previous students' work to get an idea of what you need to do--more detail is
better than less if you're aiming for an A. Also, you can always ask me to take
a look at what you have so far and tell you if you need more or are on the
right track.

Joints are the location where two (or more) bones articulate with one another.
They are frequently a weak-point and thus susceptible to injury. This week we're
learning about the joints in your body and about some of the injuries associated
with joints. Your assignments for the week include:
 Complete your first exposure with the material BEFORE your come to class this
week (you can do this by: completing the audio/visual lectures or listening to
the podcasts or by reading the relevant chapter(s) in your textbook—use
whichever approach works best for you).
 Take the weekly online quiz on joints.
 Continue your studies for the upcoming practicals and exam.
 Get working on your Wiki Why question.

Though some people don't realize it, their bones are living, constantly changing
organs that adapt to environmental conditions continually. This week we'll not only
start learning about bones, but we'll also start studying bone anatomy for a couple
upcoming lab practicals. This week's assignments include:
 An intro to the skeletal system assignment (due BEFORE you come to class
THIS week).
 Complete your first exposure with the material BEFORE your come to class
this week (you can do this by: completing the audio/visual lectures or

its component parts. Once you've reviewed the organelles and their functions, we'll
take things a step farther and look at what we have when two or more cells form a
tissue. The study of tissue is called histology and it's a topic we're going to spend a
couple weeks exploring. Along the way, you will:
 Watch a diffusion/osmosis tutorial to complete before you come to
this week's class
 Complete an active vs passive transport worksheet (due during your
week 3 f2f class)
 Complete your first exposure with the material BEFORE your come to
class this week (you can do this by: completing the audio/visual
lectures or listening to the podcasts or by reading the relevant
chapter(s) in your textbook-- use whichever approach works best for
you).
 Complete an histology drawing critique assignment (due Saturday
before midnight)
 Print out and look over a histology cards checklist (bring to your week
4 f2f class)
 Take your weekly online quiz over organelles and a bit over histology
(due Sunday before midnight)

hours of attending your first face-to-face class
Organelle expert group assignments-due next week in your f2f class
The key to succeeding in any science class, and in this one in particular, is to stay on
top of things. If you can do a little bit every day, you'll find things manageable. And
as an added bonus, you'll be more likely to retain information for a longer period of
time if you study a little at a time rather than all at once (remember our in-class
discussion of the benefits of distributed over massed practice?)!
Have fun with this week's assignments and remember that if you have any
