BIO181 (General Biology for Biology Majors I)
Lecture Slide Shows

Below you will find links to the PowerPoint slide shows that I present in class. The ideal way to use them for study is to view each slide show while listening to the corresponding lecture recording*. I'll make an effort during class to announce which slide I am on, so you can follow along at home. While all of the links are active, I might still make changes to the slide shows up until the time the corresponding lecture is given in class. This is one reason why I don't recommend printing out the slide shows ahead of time. The other reason is that I don't recommend using a print-out of the slide show as a template on which to take notes. I think it is much better to take notes on blank notebook paper during the live lecture. If you want to add notes to the slides, you should do that later, while reviewing and reorganizing your notes.
