SLC Study Groups - Description

Study Groups meet 2 hours a day, twice each week. In groups, a study group leader coaches the group by reviewing course material, answering questions, working examples to illustrate course concepts, providing worksheets for students to work on together, and helping students develop effective study strategies.

Use the next link below to sign up for study groups.

How to Join:

All Bio 1B Study Groups are open for students to attend.  Anyone may attend any group.  Be sure to sign the attendance sheet when you go.
If a group is full, then students will be required to attend the study group at least once a week to avoid being dropped from the group.

The SLC provides Drop-in tutoring for all students in Bio 1B. Students can come in and talk to a tutor on a first-come, first served basis. The tutors work with students individually or sometimes in small groups, and can answer questions about lectures, course texts, homework problems, sample exams and labs.

 

How to Sign Up:

No prior signing-up is required.  Just come to the Science Drop-in Tutoring Area on 2nd floor Chávez during an open hour for your class.  Be sure to sign-in at the Drop-in computer when you arrive and then go have a seat at the "Biology/NST" tutoring tables.

Weekly Worksheets

Each week, the SLC will make a Weekly Worksheet of Bio 1B questions available in the Science Drop-in Tutoring Area. Anyone can pick up a copy and can work on it at the Biology table or can take it home. Solutions are not posted, but students can speak with one of the tutors to check their answers and ask any other questions they have. 

Weekly Worksheets come out every Tuesday by noon.
(Past weekly worksheets can also be picked up in the Drop-in Tutoring Area while copies last.)

The first Weekly Worksheet will be available on Tuesday, Sept 18.
