Traditional classrooms are just as important as modern lab facilities in student learning. The Biology department has several classrooms that are used for most biology courses. These rooms range in size from about 90 seats (rooms 200 and 300) to 12 seats (room 313C) to accommodate the different size sections. While rooms like 200 hold up to 90 students, the largest lecture sections are typically about 50 to 60 students in the Bio III: Organismal, and 40 – 50 students per section in Bio I and Bio II. The Upper-Level biology courses are typically capped at 24 students per section, with some courses, such as Light and Electron Microscopy and Biometrics, having lower caps of about 12 students. All lecture rooms have internet connections available for use during class as well as built-in computer projection systems used in lectures.
This is Science Center room 200. It is one of three lecture rooms used for sections of Bio I: Cells, Bio II: Genetics and Evolutionary Biology, and some upper division and non-majors classes. This room holds up to 90 students but the largest Biology lecture class is typically about 60 with most classes being between 20 and 35 students.
