Forest Biology and Ecology for Educators

Course grade: The course grade will be determined by two formal exams covering tree biology and ecology topics, nine quizzes on tree identification, and two lesson plans developed using material learned in the course. The two exams are not cumulative and will each be worth 30 percent of your final grade. Nine tree identification quizzes will also be taken each worth approximately 3.3 percent. Each quiz may be taken twice. A different quiz will be made available and the highest score counted. Quizzes will be cumulative (i.e. the quiz for session 3 will include trees from sessions 1 and 2). All exams and quizzes will be taken over the internet. Each lesson plan will be worth 5% of the final grade.

Final grades will then be determined based on the following breakdown:

93 and aboveA
90 - 92A-
87 - 89B+
83 - 86B
80 - 82B-
77 - 79C+
