For Class on October 6th

Here’s what is asked of you for class on Monday 10/6/14:

1. Read Chapter 4 in the Biology textbook. If you are unable to finish it all, at least have the first big chunk of it read. For additional non required reading, you can read Chapter 5 (found in Unit 2) of EO Wilson’s Life on Earth. Be ready for class discussion and participation!
2. Have a scientist, or two or three, ready to go for Monday. At least have an exact name ready and a broad topic about them or a general idea of who they are and what they do. Group work on this is also allowed if that wasn’t made clear in class. More guidelines will posted in the very near future on this assignment, but the huge gist of it was written on the board.
