You will be graded based on quizzes (both announced and unannounced) chapter tests, projects, labs, homework assignments, participation, and comprehensive exams.
25% Classwork/Homework most students do poorly in Biology because they do not keep up with these assignments. Turning in assignments late, even later on in the class, will result in a grade deduction. After 1 week, work will not be accepted and your grade will be a "0".
10% Quizzes normally announced; also posted on my webpage on the Calendar.
