Being in class AND taking good notes are the two of the most important ways to succeed in school. If you missed class or just want to see the PowerPoints and/or other class notes, I have put them here by date for your viewing pleasure.  But remember....

"Ain't nothin' like the real thing, baby"

Viewing Tip #1:
Many of the files available for download are in .pdf format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader
If you don't have Adobe, you can get it at
(It's free and very useful to have!)
Viewing Tip #2:
If you are having trouble viewing the PowerPoint notes links (i.e. you are using an Apple)
try downloading the files from the ".ppt" links and
view them with Microsoft PowerPoint on your computer.
Viewing Tip #3:
If you click on a link and you get a screen full of nonsense/code (non-biological nonsense, that is), try using MS Internet Explorer or accessing the website via the Terminal Server. See Mrs. Valk if you don't know how to do this.  Firefox doesn't allow you to view some types of webpages.
