Ecology 223 Spring 2003
Instructor: Jim Taulman
General A student may be dropped after 3 consecutive absences and will automatically be dropped after 5 total absences. Partial attendance on a given day will be recorded on an hourly basis, that is, arriving an hour late or leaving an hour early will count for missing 1/3 of a class period.
Lecture will be held from until Thursday at Piya Wiconi. The class will be offered by PicTel at He Sapa and Pine Ridge. However, because I have to teach the Introduction to GIS in the GIS lab at Piya Wiconi immediately after Ecology on Thursdays, I will not be able to travel to the He Sapa and Pine Ridge locations on alternate weeks as would normally be the case. It is expected that you will also work outside of class from to 3 hours for each hour of class time.
Homework Work assignments will consist of reading and being familiar with chapters in the textbook for each class period. You may be asked to describe your interpretation or understanding of concepts presented in the textbook chapters for a given class period.
A = 90 - 100
B = 80 - 89
C = 70 - 79
D = 60 69
F = 59 and below
This report will count 20% of the final grade in the class. You will have the opportunity to share your findings in a presentation to the class at the end of the semester.
Food You can bring a drink into class but we wont be eating in class.
