During the course of the semester, you will develop your own “Deck of Microbes”.
While there will be differences between individual student cards, there are some fundamental information that should be on everyone’s cards.
You should NOT put this off until the end of the semester! It will be an ongoing project that should not consume vast amounts of time at any one time. The complete deck is due Week 15. You are encouraged to submit it earlier!
When students approach card preparation in the right frame of mind, the design and production of the cards becomes a significant component of the learning process. Once the cards are prepared, they provide an important means to prepare for the Course Final Exam. After this course ends, these cards will also be useful in other courses and professional endeavor.
You will be tested on these organisms in the course Final Exam.
