  Mid-Term Evaluation

 Course Overview/Philosophy.
Our course has focused on the unique aspects of plant biology or what I've called the "plant way of life."  The course essentially is put together in several major blocks:  cells & cell growth, water and transport, metabolism, plant hormones, plant responses to the environment, and flowering.  Since we've completed about half of these topics, it's a good time to evaluate our experiences.  This will help determine the direction of the remainder of the semester and in many ways is a better time for an evaluation than the end of the semester since you will directly benefit from the results of the survey.  I will summarize the results and make them available to you.
