Additional software required for course (via campus license, freely available, or by subscription [i.e. electronic content associated with textbook publisher]). This software is needed to analyze data, provide online supplemental materials for your course, or for programming/scripting (i.e. R or Python). Refer to course syllabus for details.
Prerequisite: Concurrent registration or credit with a grade of C (2.0) or better in BIOL203, which is the separate lecture course.
Statement: It is strongly recommended that students have a solid foundation in the principles of chemistry as taught in CHEM200 or its equivalent, and competency in mathematics at the level of MATH140 College Algebra or MATH141 Pre-calculus, or their equivalent.
Students will meet for face-to-face lab instruction ~every 3 weeks (about 4 lab sessions per semester). Students will have virtual synchronous participation on the other non Face to Face instruction weeks. Students will be divided into smaller groups, each group meeting in person one week, and virtually the other weeks as assigned. Please note that the Face to Face meeting frequency may change. See course syllabus for details.
Alternating weeks for face-to-face, virtual participation on the other weeks(s). See course syllabus for details.
Canvas & Blackboard Learning Management Systems: SDSU is currently transitioning from Blackboard to Canvas as the primary campus learning management system. Students may have courses delivered via both systems, therefore it is recommended that students access both Canvas and Blackboard. Canvas can be accessed at canvas.sdsu.edu using your SDSUid login. Blackboard will be available until the end of Spring 2021 and can be accessed at blackboard.sdsu.edu using your SDSUid login.
Required materials for this course: Face coverings worn while meeting face to face in classroom.
Required materials for this course: Webcam and microphone.
Specific competency requirements must be met prior to enrolling in this class; see section information for details.
