Wednesday/Thursday and into Next Week

So 30 minutes is waaaaay too short for a class.  Got it.

Today (Wed):
1, 2, 3rd started the cladogram activity with hardware.  They will get bonus time Monday to finish that.

Tomorrow (Thursday):
5th: Finish your cladograms today! you'll have work time Thursday
6th: Dichotomous keys, cladograms, and we'll hit 70 minutes before you know it.

  • Monday: Study Guides 17.1, 17.2
  • Tuesday: Chapter 10 Test Corrections, Cladogram Questions due
  • Wednesday: Population Dynamics Flowchart Due.  Or else you don't get to lab.  I'm not even joking and you'll lose points for this lab.  It takes a week to do all the observations.  You NEED TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON.  Sorry for shouting.  I'm just that serious.
