Welcome to Biology and A&P

Welcome awesome students to Biology 1100, and Biology 1120 this fall, 2021.  The courses are hybrid – online Mondays and Thursdays (mostly) and in class for labs and exams on Wednesdays.  Keep watching for updates, particularly on the day of class.  The material on my website is from last term, and there may be some changes this term.

You will do most of your learning during class time.  Lectures and activities will be on zoom, and a chat site.  There will be some readings, and the normal take home assignments for each course.

Please note: masks are required to attend campus classes, labs and exams.  You must bring your own masks.  If we have a dissection, the mask should be a paper disposable one.

This site is where you can

  1. Find the daily schedule for each class.
  2. View or download the course calendar and course outline.
  3. View PDF files of lectures
  4. Find copies of assignments.

About mariagabrielletamara

I am a biology instructor full-time, and love every minute of teaching. I also have a bunch of activities that keep me out of trouble. A jazz band in which I play drums and sing. I lead a ukulele circle. I make pottery. I made a documentary called Flying Dinosaurs in the City. I also play beach volleyball, and dance (sometimes teach) swing dancing. I have a boat - 12 foot inflatable - and am currently exploring the Fraser River.
