2Note Taking TipsDon’t write down everything that you read or hear. Be alert and attentive to the main points. Concentrate on the "meat" of the subject and forget the trimmings.
3Note Taking TipsNotes should consist of key words, or very short sentences. As a speaker gets side- tracked you can go back and add further information.
4Note Taking TipsTake accurate notes. You should usually use your own words, but try not to change the meaning. If you quote directly from the author, quote correctly.
5Note Taking TipsThink a minute about your material before you start making notes. Don’t take notes just to be taking notes! Take notes that will be of real value to you when you look over them later.
6Note Taking TipsHave a uniform system of punctuation and abbreviation that will make sense to you. Use a skeleton outline, and show importance by indenting. Leave lots of white space for later additions.
7Note Taking TipsOmit descriptions and full explanations. Keep your notes short and to the point. Condense your material so you can grasp it rapidly.
8Note Taking TipsDon’t worry about missing a point. Leave space and try to pick up the material you miss at a later date, either through reading, questioning, or common sense.
9Note Taking TipsDon’t keep notes on oddly shaped pieces of paper. Keep notes in order and in one place.
10Note Taking TipsShortly after making your notes, go back and rework (not recopy!) your notes by adding extra points, spelling out unclear items, etc.. Remember, we forget quickly. Budget time for this vital step just as you do for the class itself.
11Note Taking TipsReview your notes periodically. This is the only way to achieve lasting memory.
12Note Taking TipsUse symbols to call attention to important words: underline, CAPS, circle, box, *, !, ?
13Note Taking TipsDon’t erase a mistake and don’t black it out completely. Draw a single line through it. This saves time and you may discover later that you want the mistake.

17Haploids and DiploidsMost new cells are created by mitosis, which creates exact copies of existing cells. These are diploid, or somatic cells.But we know that.Today we’re going to talk about that other kind of cell.
18Haploids and DiploidsHaploid cells are unique. They only have half as much genetic information as diploids.They make up only reproductive cells, called sperm and egg cells.They are created by a process called meiosis.
19Haploids and DiploidsMeiosis is a process of reduction division in which the number of chromosomes per cell is cut in half through the separation of homologous chromosomes in a diploid cell.
20Meiosis makes sex cells. Haploids and DiploidsEasier version:Meiosis makes sex cells.
21MeiosisMeiosis has many stages, which sometimes look very similar to mitosis.There are some important differences in the process and the main result.Hang on, we’re going in.
