I told my Micro Class … and this goes for the Gen Bio class as well … that is they wanted to submit sample exam questions to this site as comments, I would consider including them. The only qualifications are that they are serious, well thought out questions that test material that we have covered in the class.
For clarity, it you submit a question, indicate whether it is for Micro or General Bio – and provide an answer (or list of answers if the question is multiple choice). Also, other students may feel free to comment on or propose edits for any questions proposed here.
I don’t expect to choose more than one or two (based on submissions), but I do think this will provide you with an interesting way to consider the work we are doing in class.
