Unit 8:


Work through all 3 parts of the following website: http://www.exploringorigins.org/index.html
(it discusses the theoretical origin of the first cells, and some material from here will be on the test, so read the info and watch each of the little videos)

Read Chapters 22-24 in Campbell text (see guides below)
We can also scan through chapters 26-34 (some, not all, will be discussed in this unit)
(this is one of those units where the Campbell text goes way too far for what you need)
