For our next class, be sure to do the following:
- Read the course syllabus. There will be a quiz on it. You may use any notes you take for the quiz. All quizzes and exams this semester will be open notes.
- Determine which textbook you’d like to use for the semester and get ahold of it. As we’ll discuss today in class, you have 3 choices for which textbook you’d like to use for course readings.
- Start reading chapter 1; all of our textbooks start with a discussion on science and life. If you’re waiting for your textbook to be shipped to you, please read the web-accessible OpenStax Biology text in the meantime.
- Watch the two short videos in the welcome post to get a brief introduction to the anthropocene.
