My name is Dr. Jacki Houghton and I
will be your instructor for Spring 2014
This is Human Biology Sections
1189 and 1200
This class officially begins
Weeks begin on Mondays at 12am
and end on Sundays at midnight (12pm)
I've set up this page to generally
mimic what your eCompanion site looks like. (only the
syllabus, schedule, student pledge and Week 1 links
to the left are active links)
Your textbook is Human Biology
by Johnson, 7th ed. Details are in the syllabus.
I would like you to have your book
by the beginning of class. You are responsible for all
work due the first week whether or not you have your book.
1. Please go to
sign in as a student
and take the Demo Class. (there will be a list
of links like student tutorial, demo, ExamGuard or?
You may open any of those links to learn how to use this
class) It is important that
you know what to expect when you begin this class as it is
fast paced and it is easy to get lost. You will be
given weekly assignments and a due date. Due
dates are NOT changeable. You must complete
assignments on time or you will receive a zero.
2. Please download and print the
syllabus and the Schedule on the left as they are the most
important documents of this course. Place them in a
3-ring binder for reference.
3. Please click on the Student
Pledge link on the left and read it thoroughly. Then,
email me with a statement acknowledging that you have read
and understand the pledge.
4. You will need to gain access to
Masteringbiology.com to access your activities and quiz
questions. See details on the syllabus.
5. To take your exams, you need to
install special software called ExamGuard.
Here are the instructions.
