Mid year exam: 4 and 5 February (depending on the block). The exam will cover scientific method, safety, microscopy, the cell, genetics, evolution, and protists.
You are allowed one optional notes page, 8.5″X11″ letter-sized piece of paper, one-sided notes to bring to the exam. It must be hand-written by you (not photocopied, printed, or copied from someone else).
For Block 1-3 only: We haven’t begun the protist posters yet. We will do so next class. Thank you.
Research the following protists and answer the questions for each: amoeba, paramecium, euglena, spirogyra, volvox, trypanosoma, and plasmodium. Use pages 437 – 438 and chapter 18 in the text.
- Is it an animal-like, plant-like, or fungus-like protist?
