First Year Biology 1081 Lab, Lab Packet and Directions

I have not taught BioLab 1081L course in several years.

Here are directions for How to Print Lab Manual which Jan Carter put together, based on protocols I created awhile back.

Please print out the packet, cut it into 5.5 x 8.5 inch pages, and have it bound with spiral binding at a local copy store (Kinko’s, Office Max, etc). I will give specific instructions on the first day of lab.
