BB 100 Schedule, Winter Term, 2013

This is the Web page for the BB 100 ecampus class. Figures for the lectures are available on the Blackboard site (http://my.oregonstate.edu/) for the course under Course Documents. The syllabus is required reading for this course. You can download it HERE. If you'd like to have a free biochemistry book that might be useful in the course, you can find it HERE.

Please note that I do not approve petitions for dropping, withdrawal, or pass/no pass grading after any of the deadlines have passed, unless there are extraordinarily unusual circumstances. To drop a class completely (no grade), you must do so by Friday of the 2nd week of class. To withdraw from a class, you must do so no later than Friday of the 7th week. See OSU's Academic Regulations HERE

The page listings below are from the optional textbook for the course that you can buy. They are NOT from the free book above.
