Welcome to College Prep Bio!
Week of September 7, 2015
1) Review text along with notes 
      Section 1.3 Traits of Life
       pp. 6-9 studying science
2) Get/locate lab book
     - we will need it soon. 
 
You will need: 
     1) a 3-ring binder - helps organization
       - use dividers to separate chapters
    2) a calculator (simple 4-function is fine)
    3) a LAB NOTEBOOK    
  If you have one from last year, you may use it.
       If you need a new one, get the type shown below:
            - hard-cover "quad-ruled" 
            - looks like a composition book but has
                graph paper inside  
         -  must be sewn pages, not glued or spiral  
     (do not bring the wrong kind and ask if it is okay - it is not)  
     - available in our school store or office supply stores   
 lab book              
    Get your lab book NOW.  DOUBLE-PERIOD LABS START early in September
