Not much to say...congrats on a successful year! You did it. You made it through. All that is left is two things...
Tuesday at the start of class, turn in your lab report
Complete one more lab before Thursday, gather data and enjoy!
Well, we now into the final chunk of the school year. It is time to get busy in the lab! It should be a great experience and you should have a good time too. Below is both the assessments for the lab unit and also the pdf which describes how to do a formal lab write up. The lab write up will be due on Tuesday June 2nd during the class. Good luck ,have fun and investigate all that you can.
This is it. The test we have been working towards. I have to say that I a truly proud of you all. I bet you didn't think at the beginning of the year that you would be able to do what you have done. The amount of knowledge you have gained is outstanding. From the last week of talking and working I can honestly say that you have come so very, very far. You have all reached that point in Biology where you can figure it out. You truly get Biology. You don't get to say that often but I can say that you have exceeded my expectations. Well done to you all.
Now, do not worry about the test. It is just a test. It won't mean anything in a few months. Just enjoy the fact that you worked so hard. Be proud of how far you have come. To me it doesn't matter what you get on the exam. You already have five's in my mind.
