Instructor comments:

 Live Zoom meetings for lecture and lab will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays 2:00 - 3:50 pm (lecture) and Thursdays 10:00 - 12:30 pm (labs).  Students have the option of attending these, or watching recorded sessions of these meetings.  All supporting materials (powerpoints, handouts) will be provided for students who cannot attend live meetings.  The textbook and lab manual for the course are the same as for BI 211-212 at PCC.  Labs will consist primarily of exercises based on the lab manual, but will be modified to do at home by watching video or photo demonstrations.  Two labs will be online simulations from a company called SimuText, and students will need to purchase access to these for $12.  All exams and quizzes will be given through the D2L quizzes platform.
